Everyone returned to the gym for more dancing before the middle school total

The middle school raised $3391; it would have been easier to photograph

"I thought that Mini-Thon was really fun even though at some points I could fall asleep wherever I was. I also thought it was astounding how much we were able to make as a HS and how much we raised total. I do hope that there will be another Mini-Thon in the near future." -- Sean Burke, 10th grade
"It's the best night of my life. I don't usually get to stay up this late." -- Sawyer Lancaster, 7th grade
"It was awesome ... staying up all night!" -- Maggie Swarr, 5th grade
