On Thursday, February 16, we will be hosting the 1st ever LHE Dance-A-Thon, which is a fun way for our children, by grade, to show their school pride and get some exercise. As a part of that day, we are looking for each student to pledge donations to the school. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year – we will use this money as a foundation for funding all of the programs we provide for our students.
Attached to this letter is an envelope. Please place any monetary donations (please make checks payable to “Linden Hill PTA”) in this envelope and return it with your child to school no later than Friday, February 24, 2016. If you would prefer to make donations online, please go to the following link. This is also a convenient way to obtain donations from family and friends near and far– feel free to share the link. This link will also be posted on your child’s Weekly PTA Updates, as well. **Please use the notes section to identify your child’s name and class**
Please consider a donation.** Money raised supports things such as resources for our teachers, student activities, family events, and field trips. We choose not to ask our students to sell things such as candles and wrapping paper. Instead we ask for the support of our Linden Hill extended family to help us maintain all of the wonderful activities our children experience here. We will have school-wide, grade level and individual prizes this year.
INDIVIDUAL PRIZES: Each child who pledges at least $1 will be entered into a gift card raffle. The two children with the most donations will become Principal/Vice Principal for a day.
GRADE LEVEL PRIZES: Prizes will be awarded to the class with the most donations in each grade level as well as the class with the most donations in the school.
SCHOOL PRIZES: A hat day is in store for the children if we raise at least $5,000. If we raise at least $7,500 for the school, the children will get extra recess by grade/class. If we raise at least $10,000 we will have a school-wide movie day. If we receive over $12,000, the PTA can support field trips for the 2017-2018 school year, and we will have another school-wide prize!
