Fantastic Boosterthon Fun Run

Our Fun Run was a BIG success! We are currently at a profit of over $34,000. This is less than $1,000 from our base goal and a mere $6,000 away from our stretch goal.

Good news.... IT'S NOT TOO LATE to get pledges and Boosterthon has added an extra incentive. Any student getting $2.00 per lap in pledges (equivalent to $60 total) by 8:00 am on Monday, October 17, will receive a Boosterthon draw string bag in addition to any other prizes that they earn. Any prizes earned by Monday will be distributed on Wednesday, October 19. Please consider getting pledges from family, friends, and co-workers to get us the rest of the way to our goal.

Our Boosterthon helps in so many ways. Not only do your students get fabulous prizes and have fun with their classmates, but our teachers earn up to 15% of their classroom's proceeds to be spent in their classrooms, the campuses get leveled readers, playground shades and murals, and Boosterthon is donating over 100 meals to needy people in Columbia, SC. In addition to those great things, if we hit our stretch goal of $40,000, Dr. Berry and Assistant Principal Shannan Bright will go SKYDIVING and all the teachers will enjoy a catered, duty free lunch.

All pledges are due next Tuesday, October 18th. Collection envelopes went home with your student and check for payment options.
