NORMAN ROCKWELL ECOLOGY RUN
Please support the Norman Rockwell Ecology Run!
Every spring, the fifth grade classes get to attend "Outdoor Education", a three-day camp, where the students receive lessons in exploring ecosystems, understanding natural resources, and improving outdoor skills. The cost of this camp to our families can be a burden, so we hold this annual fundraiser to offset some of the expense. It is a one-day fun run to raise money for every fifth grader, and whatever is raised is divided evenly by the number of students to reduce the cost for every family.
- The funds raised by ALL students will help 5th graders go to camp this year, where they learn about our northwest ecology!
- The primary (K-2) class that raises the most money will win an extra 20 minute recess
- The intermediate (3-5) class that raises the most money will win an extra 20 minute recess
- The kindergarten through fourth grade class that raises the most money overall will earn a PIZZA PARTY!
- Students will collect flat pledges prior to running laps at the Ecology Run.
- Students who raise $25 or more will receive an Ecology Run Spirit wristband
- Students who raise $50 or more will receive the wristband and a 2016 Ecology Run T-shirt
- Students who raise $100 or more will receive the wristband, the T-shirt, and their name will be added to the "Hall of Fame" plaque by the office
- All donations are eligible for corporate matching - if your company participates in a matching program, please consider matching your gift.
- Simply note: "ASB-Outdoor Education" to designate the payment to the correct account.
The donations are all flat donations - they are not based on the number of laps that are run. We encourage every child at Rockwell to participate if possible - because eventually every child will become a fifth grader and receive these benefits for their own Outdoor Ed camp experience. In the past we have raised over $10,000 - which is an amazing help to offset the cost of the trip!
The fifth-grade teachers will facilitate the run on
Wednesday, April 12th
during the school day. All pledges need to be received by Friday, April 14th.
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Weinmeister
or Mrs. Conklin
Thank you so much for supporting our students and participating in the Ecology Run!
