Draper Dragon Dash is Sept. 12


Draper Elementary's annual fundraising event is the Draper Dragon Dash (fun run) set for Sept. 12.  Following a kickoff assembly with students on Aug. 28, students will have until Sept. 9 to collect donations.

For those new to our school, here are a few more details about this annual event:
· This is the ONLY school/PTA fundraiser for the year IF we get enough donations.  Our goal is $25,000!
· If each student collects $35 in donations, we will reach our goal!  (That’s less than $4/month per student.)
· Funds raised will pay for field trips, art classes and contests, literacy week, teacher appreciation, Dads & Donuts and much more for the entire year!
· Students can ask family and friends to donate to Draper Elementary, but students should never solicit funds door to door or from people they don’t know.
· To celebrate funds raised for our school, we will be having a Draper Dragon Dash (fun run) and a raffle with fun prizes!  Students earn one raffle ticket for each of the following: 
          - Return their fundraising envelope on time
          - Parent is a PTA member
          - Turn in donations of at least $35

The Draper Dragon Dash begins at 9 a.m. Sept. 12.  The day of the fun run: 
· Students in Grades K-2 will run about ½ mile on school property
· Students in Grades 3-5 will run about 2.5-3 miles around Draper Park
· Families are encouraged to participate in the Dragon Dash by helping their students train for the run, volunteering for this event or running with their child.  Watch for more information by email and for packets that will come home with each student later this month.
