Hull High Student Government is in action again – this time, members are selling candy-filled eggs to parents and teachers just in time for April break.
For student government, it’s a “good way to raise a little bit of extra money,” explained Advisor Stephanie Hillner. The money raised will go to support “extra fun student government stuff.”
Parents could buy eggs filled with candy by students in bulk – 20 for $20, 50 for $40, and 100 for $75. In total, with sales to parents and teachers, they raised almost $300.
“It makes life a little easier for parents,” Hillner explained. Parents that like to do egg hunts for their kids can spend less time planning them and more time making memories.
High school teacher Brian Mullin is also a parent and was proud to support the fundraiser.
“I outsourced my eggs, it saved me time,” he said.
Mullin is especially glad, since because of the fundraiser “they got to raise some money, I got to not stress about anything.”
Parents who ordered the eggs picked them up at the school before break started on the April 15, and leftover eggs were sold to students at lunch.
Dan Mulvihill, a parent whose family ordered eggs, said he was “happy to be able to do something to support the school system.”
It was a great way to end the week before students go on April break. Their week-long break begins on April 15, and marks the beginning of the end of the school year.
