We Need Your Help - lets raise $50,000 to support our Global Excursions!

The time has arrived for our annual $5.00 Challenge Fundraiser! Last year we raised $30,000. This year we are working to raise $50,000 in support of our Global Excursions. Please support us by sharing the challenge with your family and friends. Our goal is for each scholar to raise at least $20 dollars and for each class to raise at least $300. We have some awesome incentives in place for scholars who raise the most money! So lets get to it! Start collecting those donations this Friday, leading up to our Challenge Day on February 7th.


Classroom Incentives:

  • We have met our $300 goal as a classroom so we will receive an invitation to GLA's Mardi Gras Celebration!
  • We are the class who raised the most money from our academy so we will choose 3 staff members to get pied and a parfait party.


Scholar Incentives:

  • I have raised $20 for my contribution, which is my ticket to "Pie A Staff Member" special assembly.
  • I have raised the highest amount of money for my academy so I will get to pie a staff member.
  • I am one of the top fundraisers in the entire school so I will be invited to a Knockerball Party & "Top Fundraisers Luncheon."

Collegiate Academy Incentives

  • I am one of the top fundraisers in my academy so I will be able to dress down for a week.
  • 8th Grade: Our grade group raised $3,000 so we will be able to go to Dorney Park.


School Incentive:

When the school meets the $50,000 mark, Mr. Copeland will let a scholar shave his head or beard at the Pie A Staff Member Assembly
