We are trying something new and exciting. Many of you will recognize this as a typical seeking- pledges- to- support- an educational initiative and this is how it works:
- The Tiger-Thon begins Aug. 25th and ends with Family Fun Night on Sept. 14th. (More fun details to come!)
- Each family is responsible for raising $150 – but there will be prizes if you exceed the minimum!
- We anticipate this will be SIMPLE and SUCCESSFUL!
- You will receive an email link from 99 Pledges to set up your family account and the recommended dialogue to ask for donations in support of our school. Feel free to personalize this with a photo of your favorite SMS tiger.
- You could even have your child call first or send a handwritten note to friends. Maybe even invite them to join us for a sports event, Grandparent’s Day, or one of our other fundraisers. We always welcome visitors and supporters of our school!
- Think of the possibilities. You can email the link to friends and family who would love to support our fantastic school, but didn’t know how to or don’t live nearby.
- Prizes will be awarded!
- This year’s focus will directly benefit STEM and technology projects.
Prizes will be awarded in several categories and we think they will be great incentives for our students!
