Hello Middle Kid Families,
Happy Friday! Our weekends are truly well-earned. We wanted to send a quick note to make sure that the Fun Run packets made it home. Inside these packets are the pledge sheets that your child will need to help us raise some money for our literacy program here at Rivendell. All money raised from this fundraiser will directly impact your student in his or her classroom.
We spent some time today getting the kids fired up about this annual event. Aside from benefiting from the classroom additions we will purchase with the money raised, the kids will also earn some fun prizes for their effort. They brainstormed ideas for awesome prizes today, and below is the list they came up with, along with the amount they will need to raise to earn them. These amounts are totals for ALL middle kids (both classes together):
If they raise $1,000, they will earn a D.E.A.R. Day (Drop Everything And Read) along with bringing their favorite stuffed animals to school for a day!
If they raise $2,000 they will earn a movie and popcorn party!
If they raise $2,500 they will earn a homework free week, and rootbeer floats!
And, if they raise $3,000 they will earn ALL of the prizes listed above!
Obviously they are very excited about the idea of winning all of these fantastic prizes! They will need your help to gather the needed pledges, and this weekend is the time to start (if you haven’t already.) If you did not get a Fun Run pledge sheet, or if you need another, please pick one up in the front office.
Thanks for your support with this very important effort!
Bryce and Anna
