Piner Elementary-A KCSD School of Distinction!

Piner Glow Run-April 4, 2018

Parents! This year the PTA is helping Piner Elementary raise funds for our Summer Learning Program, open to all students going into grades 1-5, and our Me and My School program for incoming Kindergarteners. This year our theme is “The Summer of STEAM!” STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. Our spring fundraiser is the Piner Glow Run! It’s a 9-day program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on Monday, March 26. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Fun Run on Wednesday, April 4. With our big goal of raising $10,000 for The Summer of STEAM and Me and My School, we asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run and make it more profitable, easier, and fun.

Students will also experience an amazing character theme, CASTLE QUEST! an English castle theme all about being brave and living with character. On their quest to regain Bravemore Castle, students will learn the “SIX VIRTUES of a TRUE HERO” from a cast of colorful characters, which ties right in with our Character Counts program.

Donations will go toward The Summer of STEAM and Me and My School summer learning programs and to the entire 9-day experience. So please help our school by reaching out to sponsors. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on your student at the Fun Run! Thank you for your support!
