The PTSA is organizing Sligo Middle School’s Fifth Annual Fitness Fun Day to be held on Friday, November 15th. This school–wide event will promote fitness and school spirit, as well as raise funds for critical school programs. Our goal is to raise $18,000 (about half from corporate sponsors and half from the families in our school). This is our primary fundraiser for the 2019-2020 school year, enabling PTSA to support academic, cultural and fitness activities throughout the year for the 800+ students that attend Sligo.
All students will seek donations toward their personal fundraising goals for Fitness Fun Day from family and friends beforehand, and then compete in basketball, dance, running and soccer during their PE/Health classes on November 15th. Every student will get a t-shirt, and students raising $50 or gathering 5 or more individual donations will be entered into a raffle to win gift cards from local businesses.
Consider how much you might be able to donate to support Sligo this school year. Encourage students to reach out to family members and friends for donations. Donations are tax deductible.* Volunteer to help with the event via the Signup Genius sent to PTSA’s listserv or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fitness Fun Day is an event for everyone and there are many ways for students to win prizes. For 3 weeks prior to the event all PRIDE classes have a chance to win prizes such as gift cards and other fun gifts. PRIDE awards will go to the class with the highest percentage of students who have created fundraising pages on Crowdrise for the first two weeks and for the PRIDE class that raises the most money for the third week. Individual students who raise $50 or have at least 5 donations will be entered to win gift cards from local vendors. The top fundraisers securing 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place will receive a gift card each!
