SOS check presented to Woodland Hills Elementary

LAWTON, Okla._7News presented a check to the students at Woodland Hills Elementary for all the hard work they did for the Spirit of Survival.

"It makes me very proud, our kids are amazing, they're always looking for something fun to do, and if it’s active it’s even better for them. And it’s just been kind of a tradition we love doing these types of marathons," Jonathan Timms, Woodland Hills PE teacher.

Woodland Hills won the $500 check for having the most participants in the large school division of the Spirit of Survival Kids’ Challenge. The kids were eager to get active for a good cause, and the fact their PE teacher dressed up for the event didn't hurt either.

Though Woodland Hills received their check Monday, a number of other schools were rewarded for their participation including: Crosby Park, Hugh Bish, Trinity Christian School and Freedom Elementary.

7News is a long-time sponsor of the Kids’ Challenge at the Spirit of Survival as part of our commitment to improving the health of children in our community.

    An elementary school teacher in Tulsa says her salary has left her so short on cash that she had to panhandle for classroom supplies. Teresa Danks has been an educator since 1996. She says that while it's never been a financially rewarding profession, lately is been getting even harder to get by. She makes around $35,000 a year, with about $3,000 being spent out of pocket for school supplies.
