Fidalgo Elementary PTA

Promoting student success by providing opportunities to enhance the safety, welfare and education of all children

Fund Our Falcons' Fundraiser

This week launches Fidalgo PTA’s ‘Fund our Falcons’ Campaign (previously known as the Big Give)! Fundraiser details + a donation envelope was sent home with students Thursday!

Our goal this year is $12,000. Every donation helps, and every child at our school benefits! This year's recommended donation amount is $50 per student or $75 per family. Ask family members and/or community members to support above and beyond to help us reach our goal.

Donation envelopes will be collected from 17th to 21st.

INCENTIVES!  We have some FUN prizes planned for students and classes to help incentivize participation!
• Classes with 80% returned envelopes (regardless of the amount donated) will be rewarded with a classroom prize--extra recess time.
• We will hold daily drawings from the 18th-21st to encourage students to turn in those envelopes. Each day we will draw 'winners' who can come down to choose a prize. 
• At the conclusion of the fundraiser, we will reward the TOP fundraising class with a prize! Our goal is to give updates throughout the week to generate some friendly competition, which will hopefully help us reach our fundraiser goal of $12,000.

Welcome to ‘I LOVE TO READ - 2022’ a program to help motivate our children to read, keep them reading with new books that are fun and educational, all the while supporting the school. The money collected will be used to obtain books for the students & classrooms, as well as support PTA enrichment programs at Fidalgo Elementary.  The students will receive 60% of the money they collect in BOOK BUCKS to be spent on new books of their choosing. The PTA will receive the other 40% to continue their support of all students, through programs including Artist in the Classroom and Teacher Grants.  (For example: $40 in donations, gives the student $24 in Book Buck Vouchers and $16 to directly support the PTA.)

Students are ‘challenged’ to read (or be read to) for a minimum of 300 minutes over a 10-day period. Sponsors can include family, friends, and neighbors. For safety reasons we ask that students not go door-to-door to collect pledges.

Thank you for supporting these efforts. We want EVERY student to experience the joy of reading, reaching their goals and to be rewarded with great books for doing so!  And of course, a special thanks for (also) supporting the PTA.

Donations are due FRIDAY, MARCH 18th
