Tiger Trot

Parents and Families—this year’s main fundraiser is the Tiger Trot! It’s a two-week program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on January 7th. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps) at the Tiger Trot, which will happen on Thursday, January 16th. This year our goal is to raise $20,000 for additional Chromebooks and other classroom technology, 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 Chromebooks and other classroom technology and the entire two-week experience, including a t-shirt for every student! 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 Tiger Trot. Thanks so much for your support!
