Big image

Hello 2nd Grade Families!

It has been so fun seeing the enthusiasm the children have for our Fun Run. They are thrilled to be climbing the "Pledge-O-Meter" chart!!! There is even more excitement about the prospect of getting new playground equipment for our school!!!

Here are a few fun bits of information I thought you would find interesting:

  • Our class has 20 students registered so far out of 21!
  • 52 sponsors have pledged to our class, for a total of $1,498.00 so far just from our class! That's Amazing!!
  • Our class amount per lap is at $49.9!
  • Our class has received donations from 13 different states so far!
  • As a school we have received pledges from ALL 50 states and 3 countries. WE REACHED OUR SCHOOL GOAL!!
  • Our school has reached our $30,000 goal so now we are 90% away from $40,000!!!

Just a reminder you DO NOT have to get a HUGE donation you could simply give .05 per lap or $2.00 donation. Every little bit helps us achieve our goal of getting a new playground equipment!

Below is more information about how to make a pledge.

Have an awesome week!
