High Prairie Elementary School held its annual Spell-a-Thon May 17 and raised an incredible $11,096! Every student participates in the fundraiser, which not only raises money through pledges but helps give some incentive to students to further their education in a fun way. Proceeds go toward school activities and performances. It was the first time the Spell-a-Thon was held since pre-COVID times. Photos courtesy of HPE!
