The Great Envelope Race

The 4th annual “Great Envelope Race” is a fundraising effort that last year 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 -- a cooking class (First), a gardening-related workshop (Second) and a popsicle party (Third).  The PTA will spend over $500 per child by the end of this year and the recommended early donation of $300 per child will help. Still, every donation of at least $1 counts, and we are aiming for 100% participation. Please provide your donation to your child's teacher or to the front office and email kirkmclay@gmail.com if you make an online donation using this link: http://www.hydeaddisondc.org/great-envelope-race

So far we’re raised $10,000 out of our $20,000 goal!
