What?

  • We are excited to announce our Fall Fundraiser - the Orange Ruler Fun Run! This program is the PTA’s largest fundraiser of the 2018-2019 school year. It will last for approximately two weeks beginning with our kick-off assembly on September 21st and end with an all school fun run on October 5th.
  • The Orange Ruler team has put together a fun-filled experience for our children and school that focuses on teamwork, staying active and believing in yourself.  

Why?

  • This important program will help us raise needed funds that will be used to enrich every student’s educational experience in the following areas:
    • Curriculum Enrichment Programs: Art and science lessons, learning technology subscriptions, STEM workshops, Spelling Bee, Science Fair, Eager Reader and much more.
    • Family Social Events: Meet the Teacher Social, Spooky Spaghetti, Heritage Night, Bingo & Brownies, End of Year Celebration.
    • Teacher & Staff Support: Provide teachers and staff with funds for classroom materials, including just right books.    
  • Our fundraising goal is $75,000 (suggested donation of $100/student). This fundraiser is a great way to involve friends and family in supporting our school.  All donations are 100% tax-deductible and we accept all company matching programs.
  • Please be on the lookout for the Orange Ruler parent letter and donation envelope which will be coming home with your child on the day of the kick-off assembly.

The Orange Ruler Fun Run is a PTA fundraiser that is run by an outside fundraising company.  A commission is paid, and the PTA will retain 70% of the funds raised. Although there is a fee for running the program (manpower, technology, prizes), we believe the benefit outweighs the cost by helping us expand our fundraising base and significantly reduce volunteer hours needed.  The students had a lot of fun with this fundraiser last year and it was a huge success.
