Boosterthon Day 1

Good Morning Parents!

Our class is having a blast preparing for the Colonial Trail Cubs Fun Run coming up soon! We’ve also begun to learn how to “be brave” and live with character through Boosterthon’s character theme, Castle Quest. On their quest to regain Bravemore Castle, our students are learning the “SIX VIRTUES of a TRUE HERO” from a cast of colorful characters. Make sure to ask your students what they’ve learned each day, and together you can watch the story unfold on funrun.com!

Remember, we need your help connecting to sponsors who can make a pledge to help our school! Please make sure all pledges for the laps are entered on funrun.com. The more pledges we get, the more incentives our class earns on our Pledge-O-Meter. Plus, for every flat pledge made, a donation will be made to help teachers fund their classroom projects through Boosterthon’s giveback initiative, Project Classroom. I know our students are excited to rise to the challenge and lend a helping hand to teachers everywhere!

Thank you for your generosity and support of our school. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Have a great day!

P.S. Make sure to register your child on funrun.com. He or she will receive a FREE GIFT just for being signed up. Use our school registration code: 617293  We already have 50% of the class signed up and have raised $250 in one night!!!!  Let’s keep it up!!!!

Boosterthon Fun Run

Dear Parents,

Our Colonial Trail Cubs Fun Run program kicked off today with an exciting Pep Rally, and we are thrilled about this year’s program! We’ve asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run program (which will last about two weeks), making our fundraising simpler, more profitable, and more fun. Our Fun Run includes EVERY student in a fun fitness event while helping our school raise much-needed funds.

This year, our entire school is raising funds for the Literacy Program and the Quaver Music Program. Our goal is to raise $20,000, and we need YOUR help!

Here’s how you can support Colonial Trail:

  • Register your student on funrun.com using this code: 617-293 Once you do, your student will receive a FREE GIFT just for being registered. Then, use funrun.com to log pledges for your child.
  • Reach out to sponsors. Every student’s goal is to connect with 10 sponsors. And with funrun.com’s smart sharing features, reaching out to sponsors is easier than ever. The easiest way to get pledges is to simply click the Facebook share button on your student’s pledge page. Plus, with a few clicks you can create a custom Student Star video to share on social media. You can also use the Easy Emailer to connect with friends and family. As you gather pledges, be sure to record each sponsor’s e-mail address so they have the opportunity to easily pay for your student’s pledge online via credit card.
  • Our Fun Run program will be collecting flat donations only! Although most students will be running 30-35 laps at the Fun Run, we will not be collecting any pledges per lap.
  • Ask your child about the Castle Quest Character Lesson of the day! This year’s character program is Castle Quest, a castle theme all about bravery. On their quest to regain Bravemore Castle, students will learn the “SIX VIRTUES of a TRUE HERO” from a cast of colorful characters. Join along by watching the fun character videos with your child on funrun.com.
  • Come to the Fun Run on Friday, June 8th at 6:00 p.m.! All students are invited to celebrate at the Fun Run, regardless of financial participation. We would love for you to come out and cheer!

Thank you for supporting our school. We hope to see you next week at the Fun Run!

Sincerely,

Colonial Trail Administration and PTA

Book Celebration

Good afternoon 4th grade parents,

Can you believe we are nearing the end of the school year already? I wanted to give you all an update on our annual 4th Grade Book Celebration—due to a scheduling conflict the last week of school we are moving the big day up two school days, from Tuesday, June 12 to Thursday, June 7.  I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. The date chance will not affect the book response deadline, which is Wednesday, May 30th.

Thank you,

Ms. Brown, Librarian & The 4th grade team
