2014 Sponsorship Information
Would you like to support Gorrie Elementary School's 2014 Walk-a-Thon?
From: The 2014 Gorrie Elementary Walk-a-thon Team
Gorrie Elementary School is hosting its annual Walk-a-Thon on November 14, 2014. This event benefits our school by providing funds for resources such as teacher training, events, technology and facility improvements, class programs and many other items to continuously improve the learning experience for our children. We are reaching out to you to ask if you are interested in sponsoring this year's event.
This year, the majority of funds raised will go toward a laptop station for one of our third, fourth or fifth grade pods. These stations include 30 laptops for students to use in preparation for the new online Florida Standards Assessment test. Tests are now given online and students need to practice on the laptops as part of the preparation. One laptop cart costs $36,000. The remainder of the funds raised will be used as needed for our school. For a list of how last year's Gorrie PTA funds were used, click here.
We have a number of sponsorships available including a Health and Fitness Area. In this area, we have historically had Harbour Island Athletic Club Staff come to do some activities (obstacle course and yoga) with the children on behalf of the sponsor and provide a healthy snack. We would be glad to work with you to customize. For more information, you can click here: Sponsorships
Thank you for your consideration.
