Fundraisers help LA Middle School and PTO

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

While nothing may surprise middle school age students, Los Alamos Middle School Principal Rex Kilburn had something sweet up his sleeve, as October came to a close.
As a matter of fact, the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) and Vest Orthodontics had something sweet, up his sleeves, on his head and all over his face. The reason, one might ask? The answer is simple, just a little fundraising and a little pie in the face.
“I am so happy to have a such a busy and active PTO this year,” Kilburn said. I am especially pleased that a lot of energy is being out towards raising money to support my students and staff.”
Kilburn is no stranger when it comes to taking one for the team and been showered in great bits of goobly gook before, in order to benefit his students.
PTO provided the legwork and Vest Orthodontics treated every student to a sling-bag — the cool school version of a backpack. Students received a bag as they entered the gym and inside, some found the golden opportunity to pie the principal, in the face.
“The students were very excited to see their principal take one for the team,” Kilburn said. “I hope my willingness to be ‘pied,’ will garner extra money for the PTO’s fundraiser. However, the next pie I take in the face will not be as easy to get.
