SPRING LAKE HEIGHTS— The Spring Lake Heights School District’s eighth grade class exceeded its goal of raising $5,000 this past weekend to help fund multiple events throughout the 2023-24 academic year, including a trip to Washington, D.C.
A total of 88 Spring Lake Heights residents made contributions on the district’s online fundraising page, snapraise.com, which was started and monitored by Kristy Sinkhorn, a PTA member.
“It’s really cool that we were able to accomplish this,” said Ms. Sinkhorn. “We only had 13 families help out with [planning] all of this fundraising, so it’s truly amazing that we got it done so early in the school year.”
The website is decorated with confetti and a representative photo of the eighth grade class, as well as a “cheers wall,” where over half of the donations were left with messages supporting a student. In giant font, a welcoming message on the website reads “Family, Friends and Fans: Thank you so much for taking the time to view the fundraiser page for the Spring Lake Heights Class of 2024! We appreciate your help.”
