English Station Race for Education, March 16

The PTO is excited to announce the sixth annual Race for Education fundraiser on March 16, 2018. Over the past five years, this FUN event has raised nearly $250,000 to purchase iPads and Chromebooks, new projectors and sound systems for the red gym and auditorium, a traverse climbing wall and a shaded area for the playground. Check out this brief video showing how the Race has helped our students: caschools.us/es-race.

We’re asking your student to send emails to friends and family and request online donations. Click the following links for helpful information:

  • A sample email to send to potential sponsors with instructions for reporting the emails you send (for prize purposes). Sponsors can make an online donation or complete a paper donation form and mail a check.
  • A list of the many fabulous prizes that are awarded for meeting fundraising goals by the following deadlines: February 15, March 1, March 15, and March 20. The TWO classes who raise the most money by March 20, will win a field trip to House of Boom, an item for their classroom and a prize package for their teacher!
  • A tshirt order form. (Complete the volunteer section if you can help on March 16.) Every child will receive a free Race tshirt when you send in the order form.

Hard copies of these attachments will come home with your child on Friday, February 2. If you have any questions, please contact Olin Barnett (osubeaver91@yahoo.com), Rebecca Mauzy (rebecca_mauzy@att.net) or Anita Brauch (anita.brauch@gmail.com). Thanks for your support!
