Students at Arcadia Elementary School will learn how to exercise for their own cause! The Arcadia Elementary PTA understands that promoting health and wellness is important for our youth, therefore they have chosen a fun run as their fundraiser for the spring. A fun run is a walk-a-thon/run-a-thon kid style. It is not a race or a speed competition. It’s an opportunity for them to have fun, while doing something healthy and supporting their school. That makes every student a winner.
Your child will be given a pledge packet on April 12th at the kick-off assembly with all the information that you will need to help support your child in achieving their goals.
Parents are encouraged to come and cheer their children on. A schedule will be sent home before the event day to let you know when your child will be running. We would love to have you there! Also, we will be sending home a note looking for volunteers to help us that day.
With help from Get Movin’ a fun run company based in Milford, MI this fundraiser will be a huge success with 95% of raised funds going straight to the Arcadia PTA. The money that is being raised will go toward making the next school year the best experience for students at Arcadia. The PTA uses these funds for activities such as field trip entrance fees and buses, vision screening and maturation. We also celebrate the birthdays of the teachers and students. We have set our sights high this year, and would like to raise extra money to help go toward more student educational experiences.
Thank you so much for your support. This will be a wonderful way to support our school and children. We are going to have a blast!
