The Race for Education is just around the corner and this year’s theme is “Color Run!” Every grade will have a colored sneaker which will move across the wall to the finish line! Watch as the sneaker travels closer and closer to the finish line in the lobby. Each marking will be worth a percentage of what that class is set to earn. They will travel on the wall based on 10% increments. Students will be asked to raise money by using the enclosed sponsor sheet and donation form which can be mailed to family and friends to help move their sneaker across the wall to Reach the Finish Line! They are also available on our website.
We are asking each family to try to raise at least $100.00 this year. We will be giving many prizes out this year. If a family raises $50.00 the students of that family will receive an out of uniform pass. If a family raises $75.00 the students will receive an out of uniform pass and an ice cream. If a family raises $100.00 the students will receive an out of uniform pass, an ice cream and a special breakfast. For every $100.00 a family raises, they will have their name entered into a drawing to win a $50.00 gift card to be used anywhere.
Volunteers are needed to help throughout the day. If you are VIRTUS trained and would like to help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. All forms and letters will be available to print or email to relatives and friends on the school website.
Watch for the raffles and contests that will be available soon for the children to participate in during the days leading up to the race.
Opening ceremonies will begin at 8:15am with the children processing out to the field with their class banners, prayer, presentation of the flag, the Pledge of Allegiance, and the singing of the National Anthem.
We hope to see you there!
