We’re raising funds for intervention support!
It’s time for the Boosterthon Fun Run, Clear Sky’s ONLY MAJOR FUNDRAISER of the year. This program is a healthy alternative to traditional product sales that raises much-needed funds for our school. Family and friends anywhere in the world can support CSE by giving pledges toward the number of laps your student will run on the day of the Fun Run on Wednesday, August 31.
This is our third year to participate in the Boosterthon Fun Run. It has always been our goal to host the run in the fall when weather is nicest and when funds raised can be put to use all year long. (For more information about how funds will be utilized, please visit "Your PTO Dollars at Work.")
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!
Watch a message from Principal Roe!
The Boosterthon program promotes three specific values during the fun-filled experience: FITNESS, LEADERSHIP, and CHARACTER. 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.
Less Hassle ... More Profit
To make our fundraising significantly easier, more profitable, and more fun, we’ve asked the experts at Boosterthon to power the entire 8-day program. Boosterthon’s pledging technology — funrun.com — helps us raise and collect far more. Their amazing team coordinates all the details and logistics, allowing us to better focus on education. Using Boosterthon, Clear Sky raised $25,000 last year, and this year our goal is to match that. We need your help to do it!
Fun Run Basics
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. Students will also receive a FREE gift just by being registered on funrun.com.
