Camp Rainbow Benefits from Spell-A-Thon Fundraisers

Each year, students from Ronald Sodoma Elementary School in Albion and Holley Elementary School participate in a very special event that raises money for The Arc's Camp Rainbow, a summer day camp in Lyndonville.  Beginning in March and going into June, the students are involved in a Spell-A-Thon which includes getting and collecting pleges, taking a 100-word spelling test, and ends with a fun day for all.
Students from the Albion second grade have been partnering with The Arc for well over twenty-five years by taking part in the Spell-A-Thon.  This year the students raised over $6,100 for Camp Rainbow.  The top student was Nicholas Harling; he raised $607.  Mrs. Werner's class raised the most money of the six second grade classes at Albion and enjoyed a pizza party as a thank you.  The entire second grade enjoyed a "Camp Day" at their school on Tuesday, June 18th, with fun activities including story and video time, crafting, music, and games.

The Holley third grade students recently completed their Spell-A-Thon activities and raised almost $1,200 for Camp Rainbow.  Their top student was Alexis Blosenhauer who raised $370.  Mrs. Sevenski's class enjoyed a pizza party for raising the most money.  Unfortunately, their field trip was rained out this year.
