What is Lap-a-Thon?

Lap-a-thon is one of our two big fundraisers for Prairie Ridge Elementary. Students will be sent home with donation cards for family and friends to donate on Tuesday, September 4th, 2018. On the day of the event, the kids receive bracelets for each lap they walk. The morning ends with a treat. Parents are welcome to come and cheer their students along.
