Students gather before the Fun Run at Henderson


The track at Henderson Elementary was full of laughter, cheering, and a sea of colorful shirts and team flags on Sept. 20 as the school held their Second Annual Fun Run. This year’s fundraiser collected money to update student technology, as well as school programs. Henderson families were able to gather pledges for every lap run by their child.

Students were invited to run, walk, and even dance their way through the course as their favorite songs blasted through the sound system. Teachers, staff, and families cheered from the sidelines with plastic clappers in hand and big smiles on their faces. Third grader Aerianna Waters-Ratliff was excited for the day, particularly the partner run, and she was able to “spend time with friends.”

Fifth grader Chloe Fiely was driven and ready for the day, and had her goal in sight. “I love the feeling of knowing that you got through the run.”

Not only was the day a blast for students, but Henderson was also able to raise achieve their goal of raising $30,000. Way to make it to the finish line, Eagles!
