Soapbox Derby Update Thank you again School Family for all your support and work on the derby this year! The net income this year was just shy of $20,000. We feel blessed with this amount especially due to the rain and other factors. Each year we use those funds for: classroom funds and projects around the school, i.e. resurfacing the blacktop, new outside drinking fountains, updating the office, etc. This year we have decided to begin saving money to go towards a much needed project: re-roofing our gym. After keeping a reserve for the derby funds and giving to the classroom funds we have about $15,500 to put towards the roof. We are very excited for this opportunity to fix a long-time issue that keeps needing repair. We are looking forward to next year's derby and earning the rest of the monies needed to complete this project.
