The 4th annual “Great Envelope Race” is a our first big fundraising effort of the school year! Last year we drew over 332 participants and raised over $18,000 to support our school!
This year’s effort, with the theme of “110 years and Counting,” will include class prizes —1st Prize: a cooking class, 2nd Prize: a gardening-related workshop, and Third Prize: a popsicle party. The PTA will spend over $500 per child by the end of this year and the recommended early donation is $300 per child will help. Still, every donation of at least $1 counts, and we are aiming for 100% participation.
Contributions will help to pay for the following:
- School programming
- Professional development
- Books for classrooms and the school library
- School beautification
- Curricular enhancements and technology upgrades
- Subsidize the PTA’s scholarship fund (a fund that covers student activity fees, books and enrichment programs for Hyde students in need).
- Other needed programs and opportunities for children in our school community
The race ends on November 3! So, make your payment online using the link or send in those envelopes to your teacher/front office.
