Color Run is happening Sept 3!

We are SO excited to have our Color Run this year.  As stated in a previous email, we are looking for sponsors to help kickstart our fundraising goal! This will be our only big fundraiser this year, and we have some big goals! We will use the funds raised for student rewards throughout the year, for student celebrations and support, teacher supplies and support, school enhancement, and some technology needs. Our sponsors are a HUGE part of our fundraising goal of $40,000. Attached is all the information you will need and the sponsorship levels available. 

 

Sponsorship is not limited to just local businesses. Every year, we have many parents join in our fundraising goal as a sponsor! We look forward to that again this year. If you would like to become a Color Run Sponsor, please contact Norris84@gmail.com (or send to the school address as listed on attachment) with your form and payment as soon as possible or by August 4

 

Thank you for supporting our school and Go Wolves!
