PTA Fundraiser Winners Enjoy Big Prizes By Kim Skaja Ryan Balagtas and Michael Meyers have a lot to smile about these days. These two Huntley Elementary students were the big winners at the Dec. 5, PTA awards assembly. This year, students K-8 sold gift wrap and other items to raise funds for various groups and projects throughout the school. All students who sold at least 10 items were eligible to win a CD boom box. Michael Meyers, a first grade student, was the lucky winner. Michael sold 21 items during the sale, so he had two chances to win. All students who sold at least 20 items were also given the chance to unlock a treasure chest filled with $1 bills - 200 in all! Ryan Balagtas, a fourth grader, chose the correct key. Congratulations, Ryan and Michael! Michael told PTA members that he has been making good use of his CD boom box. He told us that he now owns two CDs. His favorite is "The Lion King." Ryan enjoyed spending his money. He was able to buy a new pair of really cool shoes and some football equipment that he wanted. Both boys were happy to be winners and would like to win again next year! PTA worked with Imperial Crown marketing for the second time this year.
