On Oct. 22, approximately 200 students and parents from the Netcong School community gathered in the school’s auditorium to get ready to participate in the school’s annual Color Run Fundraiser.
The Color Run Fundraiser started during the 2015-2016 school year by Student Council moderator, Kimberly Arbolino. The goal of the fundraiser is to raise enough money to cover the costs of busing for field trips to ensure that we keep field trip costs down for parents and student. Last year, the Color Run Fundraiser raised $7,310 which covered the cost of busing for all last year’s field trips. This year, the students raised even more money for a total profit of $7,689 to cover the costs of busing for this year’s annual field trips.
Arbolino stated, “I am thrilled with the positive outcome of the Color Run event. It’s a fun event that boosts camaraderie and school spirit. All participants have fun and everyone enjoys spreading color all over each other.”
Kathleen Walsh, assistant principal, said “We are grateful for all the hard work, time, and energy that Mrs. Arbolino and the Student Council put in to make this event successful. It is nice to see the outpouring of support for the students and the school as well.”
