On Saturday, Nov. 13, Norfeldt Elementary School held it’s 4th Annual Dolphin Dash, an inclusive fun run for K-5 students organized by the Norfeldt PTO.

Students who participated received an official race shirt and an opportunity to raise funds for Norfeldt  through their personal online platform. After each lap was completed, children received a bracelet handed out by parent and teacher volunteers.

This event was inclusive of all students and we were proud of students who paired up to support one another in the event. The race embodied our school motto of “You Belong Here.”

The school mascot, Fin the Dolphin, cheered the kids on throughout the event and showed off her dance moves. Over $20,000 was raised by donations and corporate sponsors.
