District 50’s United Way campaign began on October 2nd with an overall district goal of $62,000. Each school representative received their school goal and other campaign materials at a kickoff meeting held at the United Way Center. The representatives also viewed a United Way video which showed the impact their dollars have on our community.
Mathews Elementary wasted no time in surpassing their school goal. Thanks to the leadership of 5th grade teacher Traci McKee, Mathews raised $4,144.00 in a week! So far the district has raised a grand total of $18,000 towards the United Way campaign.
