Sharkathon Edition, 2019

SHARKATHON

Good evening Sugar Creek Families,


Our BIG SHARKATHON fundraiser is approaching! Our Sharkathon pep rally is on Wednesday, October 23rd- this is where we kick off our Sharkathon Week! This entire week will consist of spirit days. We encourage all our students and staff to show their school spirit by dressing up each day. For every student that dresses up on each day, they will earn spirit points for their class. Students and families will be collecting pledges from family and friends to help our school!


Last year, our school raised money for additional playground equipment which will be installed in November. Our school goal this year is to pledge $70,000 for a shade structure and pour in place surface for beneath the equipment. This is a big project that we would like to be installed by Thanksgiving Break. So we need your help!


We will work on two things during our Sharkathon Week- 1) collecting pledges and 2) dressing up on our spirit days. It's going to be a great week of fun!



Attached below is more information and specifics about Sharkathon. We hope you can take some time to read the information.
