"Uptown Funk" written specially for L-S Mini-Thon:
Bubble soccer in the gym:
"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 gradeSee the remainder of LSNews.org's dozens of photos from the event.
