2017 Tritt-Mazing Race Fundraiser
When: October 11th - 27th
Where: Tritt Elementary School
Our PTA Fundraiser: The Tritt-Mazing Race (formerly known as the Dash) is kicking off Wednesday, October 11th with a student pep rally. The PTA is looking to reach their annual goal of $90,000 for many new projects at our school. We do an in-house fundraiser, instead of paying a company, so we can limit classroom interruptions and keep 100% of the profit.
The race will take place on Friday, October 27th – so save the date now to attend! This year our PTA has added a couple of STEM challenges to encourage our students to work together as one team, with one goal - while staying active physically and/or mentally. The students will be challenged to complete an obstacle course on our field, stopping at 4 different stations where each class will complete a team challenge. The class will not be able to move on to the next station until every student completes the challenge. To keep a competitive edge, we will encourage the classes to try and complete the course as fast as possible. This year’s goal is to have each class use smarts and speed to complete the course as a team as quickly as possible.
So why are we doing this??? The purpose of this event is to raise money for the PTA to be able to fund large projects, grade level grants, and all of their great enrichment programs at our school, such as: Arts in Ed Day, International Night, and Exceptional Children’s week. The large projects this year will include:
- Funding STEAM Professional Development and Materials (as we begin to showcase the ARTS more at Tritt)
- Re-painting the gym
- Making the Nature Trail safer and keeping it cleaned-up
- Installing safer padding around the main playground
