Daily Herald report

Students and teachers at Westbrook School in Mount Prospect did their part Friday to raise $9,000 for the Westbrook PTA.

The students have been collecting pledges, and on Friday they walked around the school grounds in the first walk-a-thon. The PTA is fundraising so it can pay for the assemblies, special events and learning tools the group provides for the students and teachers.
