Rainsboro fourth- and fifth-graders recently spent a week raising money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through the hospital’s Math-A-Thon event.

It’s something Rainsboro math teacher Amy Cockrell thought would be a great way not only for students to sharpen their math skills, but also to help students realize they are able to make a difference and positively impact the lives of others.

The Math-A-Thon event was for one week, and students raised money by getting pledges to complete math problems in a booklet provided by St. Jude.

During the event, Tony Neff of Petland learned what the kids were doing and made sure Petland helped out, which the company did with a $500 donation.

Along with the donation from Petland, the kids raised an additional $80, and Cockrell is hopeful that next year the Math-A-Thon can include more than just the fourth- and fifth-graders.
