This year’s MAIN FUNDRAISER is again the Boosterthon Fun Run, and we are so excited to finally host the run in the fall when weather is nicest and when funds raised can be put to use all year long! Hosting a Fun Run means there is no selling or delivering products. Family and friends anywhere in the world can support our school by giving pledges toward the number of laps your student will run on the day of the Fun Run on Wednesday, August 31.
Our Fun Run program will last about 2 weeks — from Monday, August 22 to Wednesday, August 31. Students will experience an exciting Pep Rally, families will have time to get pledges, and on the last day, students will run in the Fun Run! Every student, no matter financial participation, is invited to run in the Fun Run.
Also, our Fun Run comes with a world-class character theme. This year’s theme is BACKYARD BOX OFFICE, a movie theme all about making a difference by getting into character. Our students will learn from five REAL kid difference-makers. From inventors, to world-class speakers, to business owners, to world-record holders, these five kids will inspire our students to practice the five Character ACTS and make a difference in our community. Check out the fun video below.

How Will the Monies Raised Be Used?
From Principal Kellie Roe
All educators know how important it is to differentiate support for their students, and ours work hard to do that every day in their classrooms. Sometimes though, students need more support than their teachers can provide. That’s where MTSS (multi-tiered systems of support) comes in. The MTSS approach involves targeting specific areas in which students are struggling or requiring challenge and then applying increasingly research-based interventions until the students’ needs are met. At Clear Sky we want to offer additional support to our students that need it most, and we are so excited to partner with our PTO to do that! This year our PTO fundraising dollars will go to teacher salaries that provide intervention support to our students and supplies they might need to provide these interventions. In this very tight budget year, we are grateful to have the support of our PTO and families to provide this additional intervention support for our students!
More information will come home with your child in Thursday folders, or you can visit our website: www.CSEPTO.com/boosterthon. This is the major fundraising event for the year! Thanks in advance for supporting the Clear Sky Elementary PTO.
