Every child who participates will get a ticket for every $50 raised and entered into a pool to win PRINCIPAL FOR A DAY
The grade level to raise the most money overall (on a per student basis), will receive a pizza party! (TK and K are combined as one grade level)
If there is full class participation in fundraising, that grade will receive a special, 45-minute recess. (TK and K are combined as one grade level)
If the entire school raises, $35,000 all students will receive a special, 1-hour recess with a Popsicle
If the entire school raises, $50,000, all of the above PLUS - students will get to SLIME Ms. Roberts
