Duct tape challenge at LPS

The Duct Tape Challenge is over!  We had a tie for first place. Mr. Daddario and Ms. Webb raised the same amount of money during the challenge.  In all, $500 was raised to help with the cost of the first grade trip to Tangier Island.  Way to go LPS!  

On Friday afternoon, the entire school gathered in the gym to participate in the taping of our two winners.  Even though the gym got quite warm, Mr. D. and Ms. Webb kept their smiles!  

Members of the after school Dance Club demonstrated some of the dances they have learned.  Everyone enjoyed the performance during the taping of our winners.

Many thanks to all our students and staff who contributed to the money jars during our first, and probably not last, Duct Tape Challenge!
