Dear Mantua Supporter,
We are participating in the Run for Rocky this year to provide curriculum, staff development, and additional activities to our Mantua school and community. Please help us meet our goals! Donate at the link below to support us:
The Run for Rocky is Mantua PTA’s largest fundraiser of the year that seeks to generate funds that WILL be injected into the school this year to include various curriculum materials, staff development and other teacher resources, and fun PTA programs and events for the school community.
The Run for Rocky also promotes healthy habits, boosts school spirit and fosters community involvement.
Students that raise money will have the chance to participate in our Large Gift Raffle! For every $100 they raise, their name will be entered one time into the raffle. Winners will be announced at the completion of our fundraising period on November 5th!
Large Gift Raffle Prizes Include:
Nintendo Switch - sponsored by Anne and Sarah Harrington, Long & Foster Realtors
Chromebook - sponsored by Jennifer Mack Properties
3D Printer - sponsored by Jennifer Mack Properties
Electric Razor Scooter - sponsored by Ballston Local
NASA Telescope - sponsored by iContact Coaching
Kids Drone - sponsored by Merrifield Orthodontics
Echo Dot - sponsored by Merrifield Orthodontics
And as a gift to EVERY STUDENT, on the morning of Run For Rocky, they will each receive:
The Official Run for Rocky T-shirt - sponsored by Axiologic Solutions, Elite M.A. Center, Kaizen MMA Fairfax, and Anne and Sarah Harrington, Long & Foster Realtors.
Additionally, during the week of Run for Rocky, the classrooms with the highest levels of participation will earn a special class incentive from their teacher. Only one classroom winner per day (unless there is a tie) and a classroom can only win once during the week.
To say thank to our teachers for helping us raise funds for the school, we will host a special “teachers-only” raffle. For every $200 that a classroom raises, the classroom teacher will get his/her name in the teacher raffle for two $150 gift cards from Amazon. Drawings for those prizes will be on November 5th.
THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS FOR THEIR DONATIONS!
HELP US MEET THE CHALLENGE by sharing the Run for Rocky’s donation link with friends and family. If we meet at least 50% and then 100% of our $40,000 goal as a school, the students will get 2 special surprises from the school administration!
REMEMBER: DONATIONS WILL BE WELCOMED THROUGH Friday, November 5th!
