We are excited to partner with Step It Up Kids for their fitness fundraiser this school year. We had our kick-off assembly on Wednesday September 4th and our fundraiser runs through Wednesday September 18th. Each family sets up an online portal to collect donations. Donors are automatically sent a receipt for tax purposes. Students also received a pledge sheet if they prefer to collect cash or check donations which must be turned in to the school by Wednesday September 18th. As a celebration for all their efforts, ALL STUDENTS will receive a Day of Awesomeness at school on October 16th. This will look like a combination of Wipeout and American Ninja Warrior with multiple single lane inflatable obstacle courses. Our goal is to raise $30,000 in donations and 80% of our funds raised will come back to Hillrise in the form a check, Day of Awesomeness and rewards. Funds raised will go toward field trips, classroom supplies, educational programs, special class events, school-wide events and more. We are on day 5 out of our two week fundraising period and we are already over $20,000 in donations! Let’s go Huskies!
