This FUNdraiser is a winner!

Every year, our PTO holds a Spring Fair.  This is a day of games, raffles, prizes, and a golf ball drop to raise funds for the school.  Teachers typically volunteer to run a game. It's always exciting to see teachers on the weekends, especially when they are in charge of helping at the Bounce House or painting faces.

Another aspect of the Spring Fair is a silent raffle.  Each grade level "donates" an activity.  In the past, grade level teams have offered pizza parties, kickball games, and ice cream sundaes, to name a few.  These events happen during lunch or after the school day has ended.  Families can sign their children up for these special events held by their very own teachers at the Spring Fair.

For the second year in a row, the third grade team has donated "BINGO and Popsicles."  We held this event after school this week for the 18 third graders that had signed up.  Each student paid $10 to participate, which meant a total of $180 raised in just 45 minutes.  All of the funds went to the PTO as part of the Spring Fair fundraiser.  We bought a value pack of Popsicles and used prizes that we had each accumulated through out the year for winners, so very little money was actually spent.

Sara's mother, who is a retired kindergarten teacher, even donated "consolation prizes" for all students.  Naturally, the teachers had to try them on for size!

While the students were enjoying their Popsicles, Sara entertained them with a solar system rap.  If you haven't heard this song, check it out!
