Students Raise Money To Help PTO Sponsor Activities

Students at Arnoldsburg Elementary are helping to raise money for the PTO. Candidates for King and Queen of the 51st annual West Virginia Molasses Festival are earning votes a penny at a time. The event raises between $8,000 and $15,000 each year to benefit the PTO, and in turn, the school’s students.
