Students at East Elementary School received awards Monday for the spectacular amount of candles they sold as a fund-raiser for playground equipment. Students raised more than $7,600 $3,000 more than they raised last year. The top sellers were Tiara Boyle, Nancy Gutierrez and Robert Baker. Boyle received a bicycle and helment for earning $1,533, Gutierrez won a Gameboy for earning $1,062 and Baker won a scooter for earning $921. Above, Baker looks over his new scooter.

Sperl was given an award because his was the only class with 100 percent participation in the fund-raiser. Above, Gladden presents students with a bag of goodies.
