BOOSTERTHON!

Parents! This year’s main fundraiser is the Wakefield Eagles Fun Run! It’s a 9-day program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on January 9th. Then families will have time to get pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Fun Run on January 24th. With our big goal to raise funds for Playgrounds and Teacher Give Back, we asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run and make it more profitable, easier, and fun.

Students will also experience an amazing character theme, BACKYARD BOX OFFICE! It’s a movie theme all about making a difference by getting into character. Our students will learn from five REAL kid difference-makers. From inventors, to world-class speakers, to business owners, to world-record holders, these five kids will inspire our students to practice the five “Character Acts” and make a difference in our community.

Donations will go toward Playgrounds and Teacher Give Back and to the entire 9-day experience. So please help our school by reaching out to sponsors. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on your student at the Fun Run! Thank you for your support!
