Fitness FUNdraiser 2013

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Today is the start of our biggest fundraiser of the year—the Linscott-Rumford Elementary School 2013 FUNTASTIC FITNESS FUNDRAISER!

Last year, we were able to fund-raise over $14,000 which we poured back into our children’s educations. The money raised, funded 18 enrichment programs covering various topics from an Ben Franklin character actor, a animal expert to several hands-on science experiments, 7 field trips and buses, and many special events for all of our students. Plus, we were able to give $10 per student to the teachers for classroom supplies.

Students will be asked to track sponsorships made by family and friends for each station (5 stations in total) they will do during at lunch recess on the attached Pledge Sheets. Sponsors can pledge a monetary donation per station or a flat donation. All of our students will participate and have fun with this healthy event!! 

The day of the event will be on Friday, October 4th at the lunch recess (extended to 30 minutes).  The students will have assigned stations to start at, once they complete that station a parent volunteer will give them stamp. After the 30 minutes, the volunteers will then record the number of stations completed by counting the stamps. The Pledge sheet, donation receipts and money envelope will be sent home later in the week to the students to collect the money.

Please track your sponsors on the Pledge Sheet provided and return it to school with your child no later than Friday, September 27th.

We hope these Rewards and Incentives will make fundraising fun for the students!

•All students who returns their Pledge sheets before Friday, Sept 27th will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a Boston Rock Gym session (2 winners), SkyZone session (2 winners) and LaserCraze session (2 winners).

•Also, all students who return their Pledge sheets will receive fitness novelty toy for just turning in their Pledge sheet.

•All students who bring in over $40 in Pledge money will receive a Cal’s Cart (school store) voucher.

•The classroom that raises the most amount of money will receive a extra gym class.

•All students who participate will get a flying disk, ribbon, water and a healthy snack donated by Whole Foods.

•Every child that completes all 5 stations will be entered in a drawing, by class, to win a $10 Target Gift Card.  Pledge money must be turned in on time in order to qualify!

•The top student that raise the most money, completes 5 stations and meets all of the due dates will win a Sports Authority sports themed basket, LaserCraze and SkyZone Session and gift card all worth $100.
