Our Watson Fun Run kicked off with an exciting Pep Rally, and we are thrilled about this year’s program! We’ve asked the fundraising experts at Booster to power our two-week Watson Fun Run program, making our fundraising simpler, more profitable, and more FUN. Our Fun Run includes EVERY student in a fun, fitness event that focuses on character while helping our school raise much-needed funds.
This year, our entire school is raising funds for Watson UNITE Community Programs. Our goal is to raise 11,000 and we need YOUR help!
Here’s how you can support Watson Elementary School:
- Register your student on funrun.com by searching “Watson Elementary” 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 tools, 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.
- Ask your child about the MindSpark: Wild West Character Lesson of the Day! This year’s theme combines S.T.E.A.M. skills with character-building. In this thrilling Sci-Fi-Western theme, your students and the MindSpark kids must compete in six “Character Duels” to rescue Dr. Shock. Along the way, they’ll learn about Honesty, Gratitude, Generosity, Kindness, and Humility. Join along by watching the fun character videos with your child on funrun.com.
- Come to the Watson Fun Run on Thursday, November 21st! All students are included in the Fun Run/Event, regardless of financial participation. Remember, students will be running30-35 laps, and 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 Watson Fun Run!
