The Ashley River Creative Arts Elementary PTA is excited to host another amazing Fun Run fundraiser for our school. We'll kick things off with an in school pep rally on Monday, September 10 and we’ll celebrate our hard work on Friday, October 5 with a Fun Run.
Kindergarten and 5th grade will run from 9:05-9:50.
1st and 4th grades will run from 9:55-10:40
2nd and 3rd grades will run from 10:50-11:35
Parents are invited to come out and cheer us on!
The Fun Run is centered on this year’s school theme, “Teaming Up with the Arts,” and our students will see how we can work together to make a difference for our school. They’ll be rewarded with daily prizes and most importantly, exercise and fun!
The Fun Run is organized and managed by parent volunteers, which means our school keeps most of money we raise! We consult with our friends at Boosterthon and use their software to collect and record pledges. Most students run about 35 laps, so pledging $1 a lap is the same as making a $35 flat donation.
Where the money goes:
Our goal is $75,000. We came close to that last year and upgraded the lighting and sound system in the cafeteria and replaced the curtain on the stage. This year, we plan to fund school and classroom improvement projects, STEAM and Engaging Creative Minds (ECM) residency program programs, teacher projects and wish lists, as well as matching our art grant.
