Ashkar is racing for education
HUGHESVILLE – Rock and Race was the 2012 theme for Ashkar Elementary’s Race For Education held on Friday, October 5 at Hughesville High School’s track field. The event itself is not only a lot of fun for the students, but promotes exercise, and involves participation from parents, families, and the Ashkar community.
The goal was to raise $24,000 school-wide. All of the proceeds will be used by the Ashkar PTA to provide special programs and activities during the school year. This year’s Principal’s Challenge was a Rock Concert performed by Principal Sherry Cowburn.
Praising the efforts of the students, parents, and staff, Principal Cowburn commented, “This fundraiser is more than a school event, it is a community event showing a true commitment to the education and well being of our Ashkar Stars.”
