The Park Rapids Parent Teacher Association (PTA) topped off its fall fundraiser Wednesday with whipped cream.

“Our fundraiser through Fundhub was a move-athon encouraging students to be active for at least 30 minutes a day,” said Doll. “Our goal was $25,000, and we have raised $34,000.”

Students’ rewards for their fundraising efforts included a pie-a-teacher-in-the-face event at a pep fest at Century School.

Middle school teachers receiving a pie in the face included Brianne Morris, Garrett Kovach, Chris Kirchner, Bill Moore and Jack Brumback. Pied from the elementary side were Jennifer Michaelson, Jodi Erickson, Casey Hilden and Kristen Poehler.

According to RaNae Doll with the PTA, middle school students voted for which of their teachers got a pie.


In addition, students turned Principal Mike LeMier into an ice cream sundae with whipped cream, chocolate syrup and hot fudge.

Park Rapids Area High School took a break for school spirit-inspired fun on Wednesday afternoon, Feb. 1.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
