Race for Education


It’s not every day that the principal has blue and green hair, but when it happens, it’s quite a day! Congratulations and thank you to the entire Folger community for the tremendous support in making Race for Education such a success. More than $28,000 and counting have been raised to support technology here at Folger. The students – and even some teachers – did a great job running the track and the volunteer community, along with staff, led by Mr. Smith, were incredible in keeping everyone and everything going, even when Mother Nature didn’t bring quite the weather we had all anticipated.

Hats off to Christine Riganati, Elizabeth Davis and John Benkhert who were tireless in their efforts in implementing this event! And true to her word, Mrs. Bachmann welcomed the students to school with blue and green hair to thank them for doing their part of raising $25,000 for the school. Race for Education led to lots of good exercise, teamwork, lessons about working toward goals and of course, lots of smiles and laughter.
