Boosterthon: Collection and Prizes

Our class raised $4,000 for the Fun Run! We snatched 1st place- and get to dump slime on Mrs. Dechant! Pledge money needs to be collected by TOMORROW, Tuesday October 21st. Money/Checks should be placed in the collection envelope and sent in to me when they have collected all the funds that were pledged.


Prizes! The students have earned the following from meeting our goals (in addition to what we have already cashed in! If you would like to sponser/lead one of these activities- please let me know. I'd love for parents to fill water balloons, bring ice cream cones/cupcakes. I'll have Anna Warren (room representative) follow up with you.
