Ladd Acres Laps Raises Record $36K

October 30, 2018 - On Monday, Oct. 29, Ladd Acres Elementary celebrated raising a record $36,000 in their annual Laps for Ladd school fundraiser. As a special reward for the student's efforts, Ladd Principal Francesca Sinapi kissed "Maude," a sweet and gentle emotional support pig brought in by a parent booster during the assembly. Students cheered! Special thanks go to local companies Intel, Nike, Yahoo, Laika, PacifiCorp and The Standard who provided matching funds. Students received T-shirts and other prizes while the money they raised will largely go toward playground upgrades for Ladd. Great job students, parents, community members, staff, Maude the pig and Principal Sinapi who clearly will do anything she can to promote school spirit! Scroll down to see photos...
