A team of five students from Webster Elementary School raised more than $300 for Junior Achievement and bowled at the first ever Junior Achievement of Marshall County Achieve-A-Bowl Tuesday evening! The event was held at Quick Lanes on Jefferson Street in Plymouth from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
The staff at Webster also sponsored a team by raising over $300. Any team that raised more than $300 dollars was awarded a pizza and pitcher of pop. Bowlers were encouraged to dress up as superheroes and Webster Warriors sure didn’t disappoint. Fourth grade teacher Thomas Kinnaird wore a superman cape as did most of the other staff members and students who took part in the fundraiser.
Teachers and students seemed to have had a fabulous time! Principal Carrie McGuire said she and her staff are already looking forward to participating in next year’s event!
Junior Achievement of Marshall County is part of the Warrior family. Volunteers teach lessons in every classroom at Webster School. Through Junior Achievement, students learn about how the government works, the differences between wants and needs, aspects of personal finance, as well as many other life long lessons for their future success.
Webster is always in need of volunteers to teach the JA lessons. If you are interested in giving back to the community through Junior Achievement of Marshall County, please contact Renea Salyer at (574) 551-6082 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
