Fun Run – April 11, 2023

| Cathy Bachman |

15th Annual Fun Run Fundraiser 2023

The Fun Run is our primary fundraiser for our school’s nonprofit, the Montessori Educational Foundation.  

Our goal this year is to raise at least $3500 total, with 80% family participation. Our students have the unique opportunity to raise pledges for the following Service Learning Projects:

  1. The Children of Ethiopia Education Fund (COEEF) – Specifically, the COEEF program sponsors girls in Ethiopia so they can attend school.
  2. Adopt-a-Native Elder Program – Allows us to reach out to one another, share our gifts, and mend the broken circle of our relationship with the Land and the Native Americans who hold it in sacred trust.

Each class will have a time on April 11 from 9:15-11:15 AM to run laps on the field (and through a bouncy house). Snacks and water will be provided and we hope some parents can come to cheer the kids on. Stay tuned for a schedule of when your child’s/children’s class will participate. In addition, watch for a SignUpGenius next week regarding volunteer opportunities.

Please help to make an impact by:

  • Helping your child to set a goal to raise a certain amount.
  • Helping your child tell family and friends about the Fun Run. You would be surprised how many friends, neighbors and grandparents are eager to support such worthwhile causes.
  • Helping your child actively participate. (For example, earning money by doing extra chores at home. Then, in turn donating to this charitable event.)
  • Attending the event and join the students as they run or cheer them on from the sidelines.
  • Volunteering to help at the event. Look for a sign-up genius being emailed in the next week.

We look forward to this exciting Service Learning experience and hope all of our families will participate with enthusiasm.  

Thank you for your support!
