February 24th- Smithfield Boosterthon Dance Fit Event
In just 4 weeks, we’ll kick off our Smithfield Dance Fit on Tuesday, 2/16!
We have 3 goals for this year program:
1. Bringing our school community together for some FUN!
2. Inspiring our students to be active and activate their character building
3. Raising funds to support our school’s needs
We are so excited for the Dance Fit. We will bring our school together for 7 days of cele-bration, fun, and nightly challenges as we work towards helping our school raise $15,000 for Learning Resources & Materials. This year more than ever, we need addi-tional funds to provide an excellent educational experience for all of our students. We completely understand if your family is not in a position to financially support the school right now. You can still be involved by simply SHARING about our fundraiser with friends and extended family online at funrun.com. Sharing IS supporting! All students will participate in the Smithfield Dance Fit, regardless of financial participation. We will also be following our school safety guidelines to ensure a safe and fun experience for everyone.
We appreciate your support more than you know. More details to come as we get closer to kickoff!
