Fundraising Update: 18/19 Budget Funded!

Each year, SLE PTA focuses our Fundraising efforts to fund the approved budget for the school year by November 1st. We are pleased to announce that our results with the 2nd Annual Boosterthon Fun Run and the Fall Ball: Dia de Fiesta, have achieved that important milestone!

Throughout the year you will see Spirit Night events that will help us support our community and raise additional funds that will allow us to support our students and teachers outside of what is planned in our line item budget.

We sincerely appreciate your support in making Silver Lake THE Place to Be!

Fall Ball follow up: What an awesome evening!

On October 27th, many students and families enjoyed a fun evening of playing carnival games, dancing and learning about the Day of the Dead by tasting special goodies made specifically for this holiday by some of our awesome parents, all while having fun wearing their costumes.

Our silent auction included experiences donated by teachers and staff at SLE, the community, and several generous parents. It was a GREAT success and raised $4679.85. All of this money will be used to help support our SLE Students, Teachers and Staff this school year! Thank you for your generosity and showing your love for our Shooting Stars!

 

Can’t wait to see you at Fall Ball Friday, October 27th 6-8 pm!

Happy Fall, y’all! Join us at the SLE Fall Ball where you can show off your costume or your natural beauty and have fun with your friends. While there you can:

Dance to the tunes of the DJ

Play carnival games for prizes

Eat from the concession stand

Enter a raffle for prizes

Donate to teacher’s Wish lists

You will also be able to bid on some very special prizes like special experiences with some of your teachers, parking spots, front row seats at PTA sponsored events, name your grade’s hallway, and some other very special prizes!

Entry to the Fall Ball will be free, but we do ask that families bring canned food or non-perishable items to kick off our Fall Food Drive. Tickets will be on sale at the event for the carnival games, concessions, and raffle. More info to come on the auction.

To volunteer to help during the Fall Ball, please contact Pam Tink at ptink@twc.com.

Boosterthon Fun Run Final Results- $20,005 raised for SLE!

The inaugural Silver Lake Elementary Fun Run on September 14th was a HUGE success! Our school goal was to raise $15,000 for Teacher Grants, Classroom Resources and Student Awards & Activities.  We were able to raise a record-breaking $20,005

Here are a few FUN FACTS from our fun run this year:

–        All 540 students in grades K – 5 participated in the fun run

–        Students Registered Online: 64% or 346 out of 540 registered their child online

–        Students Pledged: 53% or 286 out of 540 received a pledge

–        We received pledges from all over the world. Pledges came in from 36 states and 8 countries!!!

Our Fun Run also came with a world-class character theme. This year’s theme was CASTLE QUEST, an English castle theme all about being brave and living with character. Students learned the “SIX VIRTUES of a TRUE HERO” from a cast of colorful characters like Muscle Mike and T-Rex Lex, attended a school pep-a-rally, earned prizes and ran up to 35 laps each during the fun run event.

A special thank you to our corporate and family t-shirt sponsors that made it possible to provide a free Silver Lake Elementary Fun Run t-shirt to every child in grades K – 5. This shirt will also be used for Class Field Trips!
