It’s time for...
Walk the Dawg!
It’s time for our annual Walk the Dawg fundraiser! This event is one that gets our students excited, gets them moving, and raises money for our school all at the same time. The funds raised help with daily school operations, as well as fun activities for our students. One year we raised enough money to purchase an iPad cart equipped with 25 new iPads and a MACbook! Wow! That was a successful year!
We are expecting this year to be a huge success as well. To kick off this year’s event, a pep rally was held on Thursday, September 29th, and pledge sheets and letters explaining the event were sent home with our students.
Here’s how this event works: Your child asks friends and family members to pledge a certain amount of money per lap that they complete during the Walk the Dawg Event on Friday, October 7th. They can also ask for one-time donations rather than per-lap pledges. On Friday, October 7th, students have a set amount of time to walk or run around our track to see how many laps they can complete. The total number of laps completed will be written on an envelope and then sent home. Students then go back to the people who made pledges and collect the money. When they have collected all the money, the student brings back the envelope with the money AND the completed pledge sheet. We MUST have BOTH of these turned in together for bookkeeping purposes.
There will be a prize assembly on Tuesday, November 22nd where students will receive prizes based on the level of money they collected and turned in by the deadline (Friday, October 21st). Any money turned in after the deadline WILL NOT be eligible for prizes. The prizes are listed on the back of this letter. All necessary dates can be found on the back of the pledge sheet.
We appreciate your support and look forward to another successful event. If you’d like to volunteer to help with this event, just let your child’s teacher know or call the office. We’d love to have you! It’s a fun day for a good cause!
