Students rewarded for sales efforts

School hosts inflatable party

BURLINGTON — Students at Burlington Elementary were rewarded on Tuesday for their efforts at being good salespersons.

An inflatable party took place in the school’s gym for those who had sold 10 or more items in the school’s catalog fundraising sale.

Four large inflatables, including a slide and an obstacle course were set up for the 60 children who took part in two groups.

Assistant principal Michael Clay gave one of them a run, bouncing his way across.

“Age is just a number,” he said.

Clay said the inflatables, which came at no cost to the school were there, courtesy of Chris Queen, who organized the sales and served as DJ for the party.

Funds from the sales will go to pay for activities at the school, such as good behavior parties, Clay said.
