FSK MOVE-A-THON 2021

FSK MOVE-A-THON

OCTOBER 12-19, 2021

 

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 we will all celebrate with a FABULOUS Closing Celebration Dance Party!
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. 
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.  

Pledge Donations will be accepted ONLINE at bit.ly/fskdonate

Or, for those unable to donate online, please drop off your Move-A-Thon Check donation in the envelope provided with your child’s handouts; please make your check to ‘FSK PTA’ and drop it off in the labeled envelope to the school office by October 20th.   Please add “donation” in the memo section of the check. Thank you.
