Dear Sato Families,
First, we'd like to say THANK YOU for all your help this year. Our students have had the opportunity to do a lot of great things, and we enjoy working with you to help make that possible! We hope you are as excited as we are about our upcoming Raccoon Run on Friday, May 25th!
We anticipate that the Raccoon Run will eventually become our primary fundraiser - and hope it will be a way to raise all necessary funds in future years. We had a great start with our Write-Off last September, but unfortunately we did not hit our ultimate fundraising goal. There are still projects we would like to fund this year and we hope to increase our reimbursement funds for the teachers as well! The purpose of a spring fundraiser tied to our fun run is to provide a little boost to finish out this school year and give us a head start going into the next. We are gaining momentum and hope to start next year full STEAM ahead! Thank you all so much for participating in our fundraisers this year! The Write-Off, Dine Outs, Scrip Gift Cards, Bethany Taekwondo Martial Arts Program, Box Tops Drive, and Spirit Wear orders have made all of this possible! *
Ultimately, our goal is to truly make this a FUN run for the students! It is a great way to encourage fitness and outdoor activity as we enter the summer months and to foster a sense of togetherness as we wind down our inaugural year. We are lucky to have a found a great sponsor (Ananthan Ayyasamy from PDXPrime Realtors) who has donated Sato water bottles for all of our students! We can't wait to see those around school and our community this summer! So sign up for PledgeStar, collect pledges from friends and family, and run like you're a raccoon on Friday! (Just kidding! You don't have to run like a raccoon... maybe you can just run with them!)
Parents! Come cheer on your student while they are running! We'll have more info on sign in procedures soon - so check the Facebook page later this week. Make a sign, bring a noisemaker or pom-poms, or just come shout your child's name as they pass. Let's make this a fun family event! Don't forget to sign up for a volunteer shift as well!
