The My Energy Kit Challenge

In October, students were treated to a performance of Energy Endgame sponsored by Duke Energy. As part of the program, information was sent home on how families can participate in the My Energy Kit Challenge and receive a free energy kit.

Remember to go to MyEnergyKit.org or call 1-855-386-9548 to request a FREE Energy Kit and credit our school. We’re participating in the My Energy Kit Challenge through Duke Energy and The National Theatre for Children.

The goal of the program is to save energy by giving our families the opportunity to request a FREE Energy Kit full of items that can be used to save energy around the home. If our school reaches 100 sign-ups for the FREE kit from our families and staff, we’ll automatically win $250. Right now, we have 12 sign-ups. Please help us make a difference.
