FSK MOVE-A-THON 2021

FSK MOVE-A-THON

OCTOBER 12-19, 2021

 

FSK, WE DID IT!    237 students, 22 classes, over 1,100 hours of active time,  AND $27,000 raised for our school!!!   

Way to go, FSK students!   What a fantastic week seeing our students rallying to be more active and bringing in thousands in donations to support our school.   We saw kids emptying their piggy banks by sending in coins; we heard about kids donating their tooth-fairy money; and, we saw generous donations from proud grandparents, uncles, aunts, friends, and neighbors. The FSK community continues to grow even larger and stronger!  A big thanks to all our FSK families who contributed and all our educators & staff for rallying our students to participate.  Because of your support, our school funded the Playworks program’s Recess Reboot to make recess time more fun and organized with different kinds of play & activities.  Also, with your support, our Art in Action program is now fully funded and our children can further express their creative minds when lessons begin next month.

Congratulations to three students for winning the top individual awards:

  • First place:  Ana, K

  • Second place:  Toni, 3G

  • Third place:  Bensen, 2G

 

Thank you for making our 2021 Move-A-Thon a very successful event and FUNdraiser for our school community!

 


Get ready to Move, FSK!  We are excited to host our second FSK PTA  Move-A-Thon  event and Fundraiser from October 12 – 19, 2021!  It is a celebration of movement and community, all while raising much-needed funds for our wonderful public school.    The funds raised from pledge donations during this event will go directly to Art & Recess enrichment programs for ALL our students.  Every dollar raised goes directly to meeting our goal to enrich every FSK student’s education.  Please reach out to our Move-a-Thon Team if you have any questions:  fundraisingvp@francisscottkeyschool.org.

How can students reach their goal of movement each day and complete our tracker of 5 hours between October 12-19?   
We hope your student will move in many ways during this week and earn fun prizes!
We have so many ways to encourage students to move this week:
— participate in their P.E. class with Mr. Speidel;
— participate in their teacher’s active/fitness time at school;
— participate in their after-school program recess/fitness time ;
— choose their own movement every day, after school and over the weekend (bike, walk/hike, dance, scoot, skateboard, jump rope, play soccer/baseball/volleyball/basketball/other sport, roller blade, GoNoodle, Cosmic Yoga…the choices are endless!). 
*The Tracker will be shared with students by all teachers and is here on our webpage.  
How can students help raise much-needed funds for our public school?  
Use the Pledge Sheet to collect pledges from family and friends and write down how much they are willing to give you per each activity square (20 minutes) to support our school.  On October 19th add up all the pledges you received for all your squares, and then please ask family/friends to send your parent/caregiver their donation. Your donation will help us reach our goal together to raise $21,000 for our school!  Let’s fund our Art in Action program and our new PlayWorks Recess Boost by making this a successful fundraising event for FSK.  
On October 20th, please ask your parent/caregiver to donate your entire pledge from everyone who signed up on your Pledge Sheet to our school!   

All students who submit their Activity Tracker to their teachers AND have their family submit a PLEDGE DONATION by October 20th will be eligible for a prize.  ***Please make sure to add your student’s name, grade and teacher in the “notes” section online  so we can match your donation to your student in order for them to be eligible for a prize.
