Boosterthon is Back!
Parents! We’re excited to host the 9-day Boosterthon Fun Run as this year’s major fundraiser. This year we are raising funds for school improvements! Our school is 16 years old, and our playgrounds and other areas need a lot of TLC to make them a fun place for our kids to be. Those types of improvements are expensive, so we are hoping to raise over $20,000 to make some headway.
We kick off the fun, healthy, and character-building program on Tuesday, Febuary 23rd Plus, students will be learning five ways to make their community rock with Boosterthon’s character theme Rock’n Town Live, a music festival theme all about community. Along the way, students will gather pledges for how many laps they’ll run at the Boosterthon Fun Run event, which is on Thursday, March 5th. Your family is invited to come out and cheer on your student! Please help our school by connecting your student with sponsors. Thank you for your support!

Have any items to help with Science?
Parents, please save your empty 2 liter plastic soda bottles and their lids! We will be doing science experiments at various grade levels starting at the beginning of the year and we need TONS of two-liter plastic bottles! As you finish the contents of your Coke, Lemonade, Root Beer, etc please save the empty bottles and lids and send them in with your child to school. We can also use empty water bottles (not the minis) with lids. Likewise, for any families who happen to get new shoes for the holidays, instead of throwing away the boxes your new shoes come in, please send them in to the school. The boxes can be used for science projects starting in February. You may send in the shoe boxes any time between now and the end of February. Thank you for your support!
Now you can shop at Amazon and support our PTA at the same time! Simply select Wakefield Elementary PTA as your charity of choice, and Amazon will send us a percentage of the sales of eligible purchases!
