Sprinting for the Stars Fund Run

Sprinting for the Stars is Back!  

 

Friday, September 22nd  
11:00 am - 1:30 pm. 
 
What is Sprinting for the Stars?
Our biggest fundraiser of the year!  Students will ask family, friends and neighbors to sponsor them by either donating a flat amount or a dollar amount per lap.  Students will run/walk as many laps as possible around a 1/8th mile track on the Lenski field for up to 45 minutes (30 minutes for kindergarten).  This is 15 minutes shorter than last year - so adjust pledges accordingly!!  Students will bring home their lap cards and collect the money pledged. Once the money is collected, prizes will be awarded to the students!  

Check your child's folder today for the packet of information.   Please remember to have SEPARATE pledge sheets and envelopes for each child!   Click here for an extra pledge sheet.  Online pledges can be made  here.  The countdown is on - 2 weeks to get those pledges!! 

 
Where will the money go?  
All funds will go toward PTO's ongoing support of Lenski's staffing budget.  This support supplements our district-apportioned funding and improves Lenski's ability to provide differentiated, small-group learning for ALL Lenski students.  Through all of our efforts, Lenski is able to provide a learning experience that far exceeds what the district funds!
 
What is our goal?  
Help us reach our goal of $80,000. 
 100% of all donations go to Lenski!
 
What do the students gain from this experience?
A fun race day, an emphasis on healthy lifestyle through exercise, and a chance to earn prizes by reaching fundraising goals with pledges!  Click here to view the list of prizes!

Last year we raised $120,000 that went to fund staffing points for Lenski, as well as the beautiful new Freenotes Chimes on the playground. Through the PTO's ongoing support of Lenski's staffing budges, we are able to supplement our district-apportioned funding and improve Lenski's ability to provide specialist teachers to supplement the classroom experience with differentiated, small-group learning for ALL Lenski students. Through all our efforts, Lenski is able to provide a learning experience that far exceeds what the district funds!
Even more importantly, it was such an exciting day full of school spirit and community support.  Our Lenski kids showed their school pride --- and enthusiasm--- running for up to a hour to support their school. We are so excited to do it all over again!!
