On November 4, students in Pre-K through fourth grade at Carroll Elementary School sprinted, bounced, slid and maneuvered their way through a student-friendly obstacle course during the inaugural Dragon Games. The fundraising event, sponsored by the PTO in partnership with Camp Gladiator, was designed to help promote self-esteem, character and team spirit.
Each class was divided into two teams—Green Dragons and Black Dragons—per grade level, and then students took to the course, completing 11 obstacles including balance beam, over/under, tire run, trampoline and bounce house/slide. Each student could complete the course up to three times, with the winning team putting their team’s flag in the winner’s circle.
Students collected pledges toward the number of obstacles they would complete at the Dragon Games, with a maximum of 33 obstacles. The goal of the CES PTO was to raise $50,000 for student and teacher programs. Students surpassed the goal and raised over $60,000. One hundred percent of the net proceeds will go to student and teacher programs at CES.
