Instructional Specialist Sandy Cook organized the event to raise money for the school’s Leader in Me initiative. “We had some great, positive feedback,” said Cook. “Everyone who participated who we talked to said they enjoyed it and they had fun and can’t wait for the next one. It was another great Elms Road family event.” Runners included “a nice mix” of students, staff, family members and community members, she said. The color run generated more than $2,000 to pay for resources and training in the Leader in Me program centering on “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.”
