The third grade classes at ASK Elementary School recently held their annual “Win-Win Walk-a-Thon”. The walk-a-thon teaches students that no one is too young to make a difference in their community, while at the same time stressing the importance of exercise and a healthy lifestyle. All 135 third graders and their teachers participated. The children raised $1,680.77!!! The funds were donated to the Port Jervis Recreation Department. Many of the students benefit from all the wonderful programs that the Rec. Dept. provides our city, so this truly was a “Win-Win” event.
