Just because school is out doesn’t mean that we still can’t have fun and share our school spirit. Get ready for some fun challenges and activities THAT CAN BE DONE AT HOME during our Virtual Read & Fit-A-Thon.
We are so excited for this fun fundraiser and know you are, too. Be sure to follow our social media accounts to share pictures or videos of your child with the hashtags #ReadingBolts and #FitnessBolts for a chance to be featured and to stay up-to-date on all the at-home fun we have planned.
What is The Virtual Read & Fit-A-Thon?
Stephen Foster’s big fundraiser this year will be an exciting Virtual Read & Fit-A-Thon that can be done at home. This fundraiser is designed to encourage students to read and get exercise while contributing to the enhancement of their school. Students will raise money by receiving pledges from friends and family to exercise and read.
Events like this help the PTA raise much-needed funds for activities that benefit all students, so we hope you will participate. Here’s an idea of what we need to raise money for:
- Field Trips, $6,800
- Assemblies, $3,500
- Red Ribbon Week & Health Programs, $3,600
- Reading Programs, $4,100
- Art Programs, $3,100
- Veteran’s Day, Grandparent’s Day, and Teacher Appreciation, $1,700
- And much, much more!
We are offering some really fun incentives for participating. Here are the possible prizes:
- $25 in Pledges – Stephen Foster Surprise Bag
- $50 in Pledges – Ice Cream Sunday Social
- Top 5 Students – Recognition during a morning assembly and on PTA social media
- Top Class – Pizza Party
How it works is simple. Simply ask family, friends, and co-workers to make a flat donation of any amount and choose the number of minutes they want your child to exercise and read, then you and your child get to decide which exercise and what book. We have provided you with a pledge sheet and activity log for easy tracking.
This is due on Monday, April 20, 2020.
This activity log is optional since it doesn’t have to be turned in, but it will be a great way to track your progress. Do not turn this in.
6th Grade Students
Sixth-grade students have the option to apply pledges after $25 to their 6th-grade camp tuition ($270). The initial $25 will go toward supporting the PTA programs that all students benefit from.
If you choose this option, please return this form with your pledge sheet by Monday, April 20, 2020. You will not be eligible for the $50 pledge prize or top student earner incentive.
If you do not prefer this option, do not return this form and all money raised will go to support PTA programs.
