Students at Alta Schools have done it again - they exceeded the goal set from the previous year to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network - this time by over $2,800. The grand total collected this year is $7,368.32.
Half of those dollars collected will benefit the Buena Vista Regional Medical Center and the other half will go to Mercy Medical Center to be used in the pediatric department there.
Each class was asked to collect funds and the two classes bringing in the most dollars will be rewarded with a trip to King's Pointe. Each class should be commended for their efforts.
Mrs. Westphal's eighth grade class collected $1,134.15 and Mrs. Langner's third grade class brought in $1,059.91.
Other top amounts include:
* $848.91, Mrs. Peterson's fourth grade
* $835.51 - Mrs. Aube's fifth grade
* $563. 72 - Mrs. Henningsen's third grade
* $521.75 - Mrs. Payne's kindergarten
The teachers and students thank local and area businesses that contributed to their cause.
