About Pound for Paxtang & Fall Fest
We are excited to introduce our 1st Annual POUND FOR PAXTANG Fundraiser and 3rd Annual FALL FAMILY FOOD TRUCK FESTIVAL! This is a fun opportunity for all students that allows parents, family, and friends to directly support our school. Donations will fund student activities and resources such as updated technology for students, field trips, assemblies, educational equipment, recess equipment, special events, and more. Last fall, supporters were able to help the PTO raise $6,000 for our school with our Fun Run and Fall Fest, making this our biggest fundraising effort of the school year!
This year, we decided to mix things up with a new health and fitness challenge! Pound fuses movement and music – with drumsticks! – to improve focus, coordination, physical fitness and teamwork skills. By combining exercise and interactive activities, kids will learn new ways to explore movement, embrace their creativity and ROCK OUT. A certified Pound instructor from CRUNCH Harrisburg will lead our students through this fun activity together during school hours. While sponsorship is not required for students to participate, students are encouraged to collect donations both in person and online and will earn rewards based on funds raised. Please use the pledge form (sent home in backpacks) to collect sponsors, or encourage friends and family to donate online by clicking the button above. Donations will be accepted through Friday, October 4th.
Then, we invite you to join us the following Friday evening – Friday, October 11th from 5-8pm – for our Fall Festival on the school grounds! It will be packed with fun for students and families across our community with a DJ, games, food trucks, and a raffle with amazing prizes!
Our school’s goal is to raise $8,000 between the Pound for Paxtang event and Fall Festival. Your family can help us reach this goal in the following ways:
- Share the pledge sheet with family and friends, neighbors, and colleagues. Submit your completed pledge sheet to your child’s teacher along with cash or checks (payable to Paxtang Elementary PTO) by 10/4
- Share the online donation link above via email and social media encouraging friends and family from out of town to sponsor your student(s) by 10/4
- Volunteer to help out at the Fall Fest!
Thank you for taking the time to help the students at Paxtang Elementary!
