The top 10 raffle ticket sellers and the top readers at Heart of the Lakes (HOLT) Elementary School were named Friday, March 6, at an assembly in the school gym.

From Feb. 17 through March 3, students sold raffle tickets for the "HOTL Bingo" raffle on March 4. Proceeds from the $1 tickets were sold went toward the playground expansion and new equipment for the Action Based Learning Lab. The lab, also called the Brain Gym, is where students go for indoor recess when they cannot go outside, or when classes need 15-20 minutes of movement, HOLT Principal Liz Johnson said.

The school gave three claps for the top 10 ticket sellers, who each got to select a prize. They earned an extra recess and a Chalk Extravaganza. Between ticket sales and Bingo Night, $3,588 was raised, according to Johnson.

The top 10 raffle ticket sellers were:

  1. Sullivan Hendrickson with 1,070 tickets
  2. Tannar Lemon with 702 tickets
  3. Braelyn George with 610 tickets
  4. Carter Poss with 580 tickets
  5. Dru Marthaler with 520 tickets
  6. Jackson Hogenson with 510 tickets
  7. Jack Hemberger with 506 tickets
  8. Adeline Wener with 450 tickets
  9. Paxton Brummund with 447 tickets
  10. Kael Buskirk with 440 tickets
