Gwin Elementary School held their fifth annual Eagle Scream Fun Run on Sept. 29, 2016. The event, put on entirely by Gwin parents and staff, has become a lively competition on campus and manages to pull in enough money each year to be Gwin’s only fundraiser.
Following an Olympic theme this year, classes showed their patriotic spirit as they ran for gold. And gold they found: This year students, with the help of family and friends, as well as local businesses, raised over $40,000. This money will be used by the PTO to enhance the learning environment at Gwin and to fund special projects. It will be handed out as mini-grants for innovative classroom projects.
