Elger Bay students raise $5,000, slime principal
In a celebration of meeting Elger Bay Elementary’s Fall Fun Run fundraising goal of $5,000, 35 students won the chance to cover Principal Victor Hanzeli with slime and silly string at a school assembly Oct. 31.
Twenty four student names were randomly drawn to slime Hanzeli. The top fundraiser for each grade level and the top lap runners for each grade level had the added bonus of spraying silly string on the principal.
“The joy and laughter fueled a great moment for staff and students to keep in mind the power of working together toward a goal,” Hanzeli said.
The money raised will help pay for field trips and special assemblies.

They were three of the six scholarships given out across the state.
