From staff reports
According to an article submitted by LIS, Mr. Aurand and Mrs. Mattey, principals at LIS, appreciate all the support from the community and suggest finding a way to give back to the local area.
LEWISTOWN — Lewistown Intermediate School (LIS) worked, for the last two weeks, to collect money to donate to the local shelter.
Jane Neff, the director of the shelter, accepted a check Dec. 23 in the amount of $3013.60.
Staff decided to raise money in the form of a coin drive. Students had some extra motivation to donate, because the winning fourth and fifth grade classes received an opportunity to silly string the principals.
Mrs. Aungst’s fifth grade class and Mrs. Cox’s fourth grade class earned the most money for the drive.
Mr. Varner, the district superintendent also joined in the silly string fun with the two winning classes.
Also, other students were acknowledged for being extra generous. Many students worked doing extra chores, taking time to ask others to support the cause, and giving some of their own money they had saved.
