Lisa Cook & bike

Lisa Cook, a 2nd grader at Stillwater Elementary, won first place at this year's walk-a-thon. Her prize was a new bicycle.

   Stillwater Elementary students, families, friends, and school staff were all instrumental in making this year's Stillwater walk-a-thon a success.

   The walk-a-thon raised over $12,000, which will fund many new computers at the school for the 1999-2000 school year, along with additional educational needs funded by the PTSA.

   The grand prize winner was 2nd grader Lisa Cook, who was awarded a bike. Second prize went to 2nd grader Kortney Thorson, who chose a GAP kid's gift certificate. Top class pizza parties went to Mr. Price's 4th grade and Mrs. Carnegie's 2nd grade.

   PTSA members said they want to thank all the many businesses which donated.
