Glow Run Starts Tomorrow!
Tue, Oct 16 12:26pm
Meadowbrook Farms School

Meadowbrook Farms Families,

 

Our largest fundraiser of the year, The Glow Run, kicks off tomorrow during an all school student assembly. Remember, it is also our first Spirit Day so have your child wear his/her tie-dyed MFS shirt or other mixed bright colors!

 

Students are encouraged to get pledges from friends and family to help raise money for our school. Funds raised will be allocated to field trips, classroom and school enhancements, staff appreciation, PTG events and more. This year’s theme, Mind Spark Mystery Lab, is all about STEM and working together to solve problems.

 

On Friday, October 26th, the all purpose room will be transformed into a glow in the dark type track. Students will walk and run around the track, cheer on their classmates and dance to fun DJ music, all while sporting glow in the dark necklaces. It’s a great event!

 

A few important things to know:

 

Pledging

Your child will come home tomorrow with information on how to collect pledges along with a kick-off prize. All registration and pledging can be done online at FunRun.com or by cash/check. Please be sure any cash/check pledges sent into school are in an enclosed envelope with your child’s name and “Glow Run” written on the outside.

 

Classroom Rewards

As students earn pledges, there will be classroom pledge-o-meters tracking class progress. At certain levels, classes will earn classroom rewards including extra wellness time, bonus STEM kit time, blue tickets, popcorn tickets and more.

 

Individual Rewards

Also, as your child collects pledges, he/she will earn individual rewards along the way. You’ll see these rewards when you log-in to FunRun.com. In the past, rewards were sent home daily. This year, all rewards will be collectively sent home on Friday, Oct 26th or Monday, October 29th.

 

Volunteers

If you’re available to help with Glow Run, please sign up on Konstella. We need volunteers to put together rewards bags on Wednesday 10/24 as well as lots of hands on Friday, 10/26 to help mark laps and monitor the Glow Run. Current BCI is needed for all volunteers.
