6. Parents and Families—this year’s main fundraiser is the GLOW RUN! It’s a two-week program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on October 23rd. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps) at the GLOW RUN, which will happen on NOVEMBER 1ST. This year our goal is to raise $12,000 for CLASSROOM EQUIPMENT & SUPPLIES, STUDENT INCENTIVES & REWARDS, and we need your help! We’ve asked the experts at Booster to power our fundraiser to make it easier, more profitable, and more fun.

Students will also experience an amazing character theme, MINDSPARK: WILD WEST! Booster’s most exciting theme yet combines S.T.E.A.M. skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building. While they're teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to save Dr. Shock, our students will learn five character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.

Donations will go toward CLASSROOM EQUIPMENT & SUPPLIES, STUDENT INCENTIVES & REWARDS and the entire two-week experience. So please help our school by getting pledges from family and friends and entering them on FUNRUN.COM. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on our students at the GLOW RUN! Thanks so much for your support! Watch the video below to learn more :)
