Dailard Elementary Principle Gets “Slimed”

Dailard Elementary held an assembly honoring students and faculty for their participation in the annual Jog-A-Thon fundraiser. The highlight of the assembly was Principal Jonathan McDade and 3rd grade teacher Meredith Gies getting “slimed” in front of the whole student body, faculty and staff.

Students and faculty were recognized for their hard work raising a whopping $38,960 for the school. The Jog-A-Thon is put on every year by Dailard’s Parent Teacher Foundation. At the beginning of each year the foundation decides how to spend funds raised from various events. This year, the money raised will go towards funding computer labs, physical education programs, art programs and classroom grants among other projects.

The tasty slime was a mix of pudding, Jell-O and water concocted by the school’s Dads Assisting Dailard Students (D.A.D.S.) group.
