Ed White Families-
Welcome Back! We are so thankful that this new year is upon us and we are hopeful for the year ahead!
In the spirit of moving forward, we are bringing our largest fundraiser back in the Fall, as we have done in previous years.
With that being said, the ED WHITE FUN RUN will be back in action on September 23rd, 2022 (with a rain date of September 26, 2022).
We have always enjoyed running in the fall to support our school, raise funds for our PTO sponsored events, let the students and staff enjoy the track on a fall day and to kick off our year in a fun and positive way!
We will be bringing back some Fun Run traditions and additional components to the Fun Run in lieu of last years condensed version. LAP Cards are BACK!!
-Please continue to look to our Facebook page (Ed White PTO), weekly newsletters from our principal, info from your teachers and feel free to message us at email@example.com as many details emerge leading up to the race.
-BOOKMARK: Our website is edwhitepta.com and houses all of the information you need for tshirt sales, class colors, run times, donations, FAQs, etc
-Who: All Ed White students and staff (preschool-6th grade)
-What: Students and staff walk, run, jump, skip and dance around the high school track to DJ played tunes for an hour as they see how many laps they can complete.
*Back this year: Spectators can take to the track to celebrate with their student(s)! We encourage all of you to hit the track!
*Lap Cards are back! Home Room Parents and Volunteers will be needed to help keep track of how many laps the kids run around the track. Lap cards will go home with a QR code this year so it makes it easier to turn in donation money.
*Also returning is AWARDS. Fundraising awards as well as our SPIRIT AWARDS! We encourage each class to prepare a theme and encourage your students to dress up and have fun with it!
-Our Why: 2021 was still a hard and unpredictable year for us all. With the ease of Covid-19 restrictions in 2022 the money raised by this fundraiser helps pay for field trip experiences, grants, visiting artists, providing teachers with funds for their classrooms, bringing back “Mornings with Mom” and “Donuts with Dad,” amongst other experiences. Our donations were down in 2021 and we need this event to be amazing to funds these fun events for the kids.
-DONATIONS: My goal is to never have you participate in more than one large fundraiser per year, so I ask each family to donate to their child(ren’s) run and utilize donations from family members, friends, co-workers etc. We also encourage those of you working for companies that will match donated funds, to please inquire. Thank you in advance!
TSHIRTS: These are always a hit with the students as each classroom has their own color so teacher's can easily identify the student's in their classrooms. Students will wear these the day of the race and also for field trips and class outings.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns and we look forward to seeing you on the track on SEPTEMBER 23rd!!!
*(As always, the situation is fluid so we will maintain proper covid guidelines, restrictions, precautions and follow suit as the school administers proceed. Our goal is to provide a successful and positive fundraiser in a healthy environment!).
