Spelling Challenge 2011

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

Thursday, September 22nd will be the start of our biggest fundraiser of the year—the Linscott-Rumford Elementary School 2011 Spelling Challenge!

The students have each been given an age-appropriate list of spelling words that they’ll be encouraged to study through creative learning and fun activities throughout the two-week event! The students are also asked to ask family and friends to sponsor them for each correctly-spelled word on the final Spelling Challenge test that they will take on Thursday, October 8th. The more they’ve learned, the more they’ll earn for our school!

Each year, the PTO must raise $50-$80 per student for basic operations such as providing the students with supplies, enrichment programs and fully funded field-trips, buses and more.

Being our biggest fundraiser of the year, our goal for the fundraiser is to raise $8,000. Please complete the Sponsor Sheet provided and return it to school with your child no later than Wednesday, October 5th.

Rewards and Incentives make fundraising fun for the students:

  • Any student who returns their sponsor sheets before Monday, October 3rd will be entered into a raffle on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for a chance to win a gift card!
  •  All students who participate in the Spelling Challenge will receive a Spelling Challenge Certificate and a novelty toy for just turning in the Sponsor Sheet.
  • All students who bring in over $40 in sponsor money receives a special prize.
  • The classroom that raises the most amount of money for correctly spelled words will receive a Mr. Charlie’s Field Trip.
  • Every child that scores 100% on the test will be entered in a drawing, by class, to win a gift card. Sponsor money must be turned in on time in order to qualify!
  • The student that raises the most money, scores at least 80% on his/her test and meets all of the due dates will win a Flip Video Camera and a special vent with Principal!

In reaching our goal with this educational event, we hope to be able to dramatically reduce additional fundraising throughout the year. So, we are asking for your support and hope everyone will participate.

Sincerely,

Linscott-Rumford PTO
