Mr. Boudreau fulfilled his commitment to our students for raising ABOVE and BEYOND $25,000 at our 2017 Jog-a-thon! Last night he slept on the roof of Durham Elementary! You can find Facebook Live posts from Mr. Boudreau and photos on our Durham Facebook Page.
Way to Go Roadrunners and THANK YOU Mr. Boudreau!
Mr. Rhett Boudreau the Principal at Durham Elementary school said he would spend the night on the roof of the school if the students beat our fundraising goal of $25,000 for the Jog-A-Thon. Not only did they beat the goal they surpassed it by $10,000 raising a total of $35,000. Principal Boudreau camped on the roof of the school last night and several families stopped by to say hello, listened to him play guitar and they even delivered warm snacks. This morning he greeted all of the students and the buses from the rooftop in his #1 OSU Fan costume right next to Benny Beaver!
This annual fundraising event put together by the Parent Support Organization funds field trips for all grade levels, the art literacy program, technology for classrooms, music education and the Durham Samba Band, new books for our library and helps build community through family events like STEAM night and many other enrichment opportunities for the students at Durham Elementary. In September 2018 Durham Elementary will hold their 30th Annual Jog-A-Thon.
