RICE RACE FOR EDUCATION-Rice Elementary students participated in their annual Race for Education on October 17th at the school. This event helps raise funds for fun-filled PTA sponsored programs such as enrichment programs, book distributions, playground equipment, field trips and many other educational experiences throughout the school year. Each student was given the opportunity to walk or jog 1/4 mile around the school as many times as they can within an hour limit in order to earn the contributions made from businesses, family, and friends. This is a great way for students, teachers, staff and parents/guardians to come together, raise money for the school and promote a healthy lifestyle. The students would like to thank everyone for their donations and for making their annual Race for Education a wonderful success! If you have not made your donation its not too late to help out a great cause. Shown are students stopping to pose with Tux, one of the many mascots in attendance.
