Reach for the Trees
This homegrown fundraiser is an example of our student driven successes. Each student is charged with raising essential funds by garnering sponsors for a multi-loop trail run. Students train for the event in PE class and even the most reluctant of runners can be seen finishing the event with a smile on their face. Sponsor goals are tallied daily in the weeks leading up to the event -personally, as a class and as a whole community. In addition to gaining interpersonal skills by asking family, friends and neighbors for sponsorships, students are also able to use their own creativity and entrepreneur skills by posting videos, hosting lemonade stands and selling baked goods, crafts etc. Students are able to articulate why their school needs funding as well as what they love about PSCS.
