Students have been assigned a color team in this school-wide event. Points will be earned for their team through donations (1 point for each dollar sponsored). Each student that receives at least $10 in sponsorships will begin receiving prizes. The more sponsorships a student receives, the more prizes they will receive (see prize list below). Plus points will be awarded during the Academic Olympics event (taking place September 9th) which will be a Survivor-style relay race covering 5 academic topics, English, Math, Science, Current Events and Problem Solving. The students will work in teams to complete each relay station. The team that crosses the finish line first earns the most points for their team! Points will be tallied throughout the 2 week event, and the winning color team will earn a special prize! All profits from this fundraiser go directly to our students! Funds raised help us make our first payment for our Music, Art and Drama enrichment classes, pay for Brain Pop for all classrooms, the Reflections art competition, and countless other beginning of the year activities that give our Pinetree Pioneers a well rounded education.
