This year the Moncure PTO hosted our very first Fun Run on Friday, October 16th!! We are very excited and hope you are too! How is this different from Boosterthon? We received 100% of all cash and check donations and 85% of online donations versus 50% that Boosterthon gives!!! That is fantastic!! We wanted as much money to stay IN our school as we could so we could reach our goal of $20,000. We didn’t quite meet our goal, but we did raise over $17,000. The PTO is raising funds to purchase 50 more Chromebooks so that every classroom has 5 Chromebooks. We also pay for three amazing assemblies each year, DARE program, Student of the month awards, STEM lab projects, special requests/needs from grade levels and Teacher Conference meals. Thank you to all the students, parents, teachers and staff who volunteered their time and money to make this fundraiser a success. Our students had a lot of fun during the run and enjoying their snowiness afterward.
For some students who worked really hard to reach their fundraising goals, the fun continues. Last Friday, 34 students who reached their Superstar goal $150 had Pizza with the Principals. They took a break from their busy school day to spend some “fun” time with Mr. Machi and Ms. Norton enjoying pizza and cupcakes.
