Educational Challenge



The 2017 Educational Spelling Challenge fundraiser for grades K-5 will be held October 23 - November 10th.  
 

 HOW IT WORKS
Students in grades K-5 will be challenged to learn 30 age-appropriate spelling words.  They will ask family and friends to sponsor them for each correctly spelled word or a flat donation on the Spelling Challenge Test, taken on November 2nd.  The more they learn; the more they earn for their school! 

WHY IS THIS FUNDRAISER IS SO IMPORTANT?
This is the PTO's biggest fundraiser of the year, with 99 percent of the money raised going back to the school!  In the past, this educational fundraiser has allowed our school to limit the number of fundraising requests we send out to parents throughout the year.  Last year, this fundraiser raised over $46,000 for grades K-5!  The money raised has been used for things such as:  classroom supplies, field trip transportation, new science and math tools, an anti-bullying presentation, annual art show, new gym and playground equipment, the Scholastic News, and the 5th grade's Boulder Lake experience .
