PTO Fundraising

We are excited about our upcoming ACS PTO Eagle Dash fundraiser and want to share the details with you. This event is more than just a fundraiser.  It will be an all student participation activity during school hours.  It will be fun, promote good fitness and drive school spirit!

 

ACS PTO is trying to raise $28,000 and we can’t do it without your help!  The funds this year will be used to benefit all of our students through the purchase of new playground equipment, curriculum and technology.

 

This year’s goal is only $100 per student – easily attainable!  The best strategy is to help your student start finding sponsors right away.  Look for more information to come on the full list of prizes your student can earn.  For a sneak peek at class prizes, keep reading.

 

NEW:

We have updated our website with tools to help you and your student make the most out of our fundraiser!  Be sure to check it out at r4funds.com/schools/academycharter!  Some highlights are:

· Goal tracking thermometers in real time for school and classrooms

· Simple online giving for friends, family and other donors

· Parents can check student donations easily on the “Check my student donations” tab.  Use the password eagles and then follow directions on the following  page to see posted donations for your student

· Students or parents can send out emails to potential donors directly through the website.  Personalize the pre-loaded email message on the “Family Resources” tab to let everyone know how to sponsor your student.

· Answers to questions in our FAQ’s section

· Important dates, prizes and other reminders all in one place

As a reminder a Sign up Genius Link was sent out last week!  This is a lot of fun for parents to watch and encourage their kids while they run.  You may sign up for your child’s scheduled run time or any other time that works for you.  We can not do this without your help!  Please click on the link below to get your volunteer hours.
