Bend Gate Elementary 5K for 5,000 and Pint Size Hero Blood Drive | Community Spirit
Bend Gate Elementary students were challenged to read 5,000 books by Thanksgiving break. Staff informed them that if they reached the 5,000 goal they would run/walk the 5K Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day in Henderson.
“Due to the hard work of our students and staff we haven’t just met that challenge, we surpassed it a month early…our kids read 5,000 books before the end of October. It was a lot of fun,” said Bob Lawson, Bend Gate Elementary Assistant Principal.
Next up? In collaboration with the American Red Cross, the school will host Pint-Size Hero Blood Drive on Thursday, December 6, from 2:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. at the Bend Gate Elementary gymnasium.
