This year’s main PTA fundraiser is the 2nd Annual Silver Lake Elementary Fun Run! It’s a two-week program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on 9/5. We had such a positive experience last year, that we happily signed up to do it again. Families will gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Fun Run on Friday, September 9/14. This year our goal is to raise $15,000, with a stretch goal of $20,000.

Students will also experience an amazing character theme, MINDSPARK MYSTERY LAB! Boosterthon’s most exciting theme yet combines S.T.E.A.M skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building. While they’re teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to solve mysteries, our students will learn five 21st-century character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.

Our share of the proceeds fund our PTA budget that provides student resources, teacher grants, family events and more. So please help our school by reaching out to sponsors. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on your student at the Fun Run! Thank you for your support!

Attached to this post is a Q&A and a pdf that outlines everything you need to do to register your student on September 5th.

Please contact Jamie Schneider at jamie.schneider13@gmail.com or Nicky Wilson at nicolelewilson@gmail.com with any questions.
