Pledge envelopes and letters will be sent home on 9/4, check your backpacks!
Dear Plum Canyon Families,
It’s time for our annual Walk-A-Thon! This is a fundraiser that we started last year, and due to it’s tremendous success, it’s now our Fall Fundraiser! The Walk-A-Thon is a fantastic way to help support our school’s programs and involve our students in a way that encourages them to live healthier lives.
Everyone is aware that class sizes are up and resources for teachers and students are limited. In order to minimize the effects of the current budget, we hope to raise money to not only support our current program commitments, but also to meet new needs within our school.
The Walk-A-Thon is a 100% direct donation campaign. Each student has been given a pledge goal of $100 - that’s $10 from 10 people! If every student raised $100 each, we would have over $70,000 to give back to our school!
Pledge sheets are attached to the collection envelope, which will be sent home 9/4. Please return the pledge sheet to school with the collected donations by Wednesday, October 2nd (money must be received no later than this date to qualify for prizes). Don’t forget to mark your child’s t-shirt size - as each child who raises $50 will receive a Walk-A-Thon t-shirt. Every student who brings in pledge money will be entered into a drawing for prizes. Students who raise $100 will be invited to a special lunch party. Students who raise $250 will earn 4 tickets to Regal Cinemas. The student who raises the 3rd highest pledge amount wins a family 4-pack of tickets to Universal Studios. The student who raises the 2nd highest pledge amount wins an iPod Touch, and the student who raises the most pledges wins both 2 round-trip tickets on Southwest Airlines AND an iPad Mini.
More information (including how to collect pledges via PayPal) is located below.
We are looking forward to having a successful Walk-A-Thon on Wednesday, October 16th.
