ASB Great Wolf Fund Run

We are so close to our goal that we decided to extend the deadline to collect pledges until Monday. Right now we have 34% of our students participating. We would love to see that increase to over 50%. In fact, every student who has a pledge, will receive a free Selkirk T-shirt.

If you haven't had a chance to check out 99Pledges, yet, we think you'll like this easy way to really boost Selkirk's ASB efforts! Using your individual student link, you will be able to reach out to friends and family by email, Facebook, and Twitter, instead of going door-to-door, tracking commitments, and handling checks.

You received an email with a link to your child’s online pledge page last Friday. You do not need to log in or change anything. All you have to do is make a donation for whatever amount you can, and share your participant's link with friends and family. We are shooting for 100% participation so no amount is too small.

If you do not receive the email for whatever reason, simply search and find your child’s pledge page here:

Here is some sample sharing text:

" NAME is participating in a fundraiser, and would love your support. If you'd like to donate, you can do so online at the following link: YOUR PLEDGE PAGE LINK

Don't forget that Mr. Larsen and Mrs. Hurst are also joining in the efforts by running in the Spokane Marathon events this weekend. Mr. Larsen will run the 10K and Mrs. Hurst will run the half marathon. If you would like to sponsor either of them, here are their links:

Donate for Mr. Larsen's 10K

Donate for Mrs. Hurst's half marathon

Check it out to see who is in the lead!

Thanks for supporting the Great Wolf Fund Run!

Positives for our Wolf PACK

"No Tardies Parties" were a blast. We were able to deliver warm, homemade cookies to 5 random classrooms this week where every student had arrived on time. We will do more soon.

Congrats to Grace D, Liam S, Tryston G, Carli J, and JJ J who got to suggest songs for our Great Wolf Fund Run music playlist today.

Our next 5 raffles include:

  • 2 wireless, bluetooth speakers
  • pumpkin pancakes for a class period of your choice
  • 2 movie tickets

Students can earn raffle tickets by trading in 10 Wolf Bucks or by being selected by a teacher for a PACK Character Award. Students can select which raffle they most want to enter.
