We had a great time Friday participating in our PTA Color Run! The PTA is about $11,000 short of their goal and will still be collecting donations through Wednesday October 24th. They will get all prizes distributed by Friday. Once all donations are turned in, the second grade teachers will pass out our classroom incentive for the $70 prize level.
Here are the PTA Prize Levels:
Return signed permission slip: candy treat
$35: receive a ticket to shop at the red level and a HW pass.
$70: Receive a ticket to shop at the purple level and a dress down pass.
$120: Receive a ticket to shop at the green level and 1 HW packet pass!
$200: Receive a ticket to shop at the orange level and a movie and popcorn party.
$300: Receive a ticket to shop at the yellow level and lunch and an in-school field trip.
In addition to the PTA prizes, second grade will offer an additional incentive. If a student reaches the $70 goal. they will receive a homework PACKET pass! This includes kid book and IXL for the week! This is for second grade only. I know we can all work together and show our support for our amazing PTA. #lionpride
