Get ready for our annual Brockman Fund Run!! After two years of parent participation not being allowed at this fun Brockman tradition we are excited to bring the FUN back into the Fund Run!
This year we will have a COLOR RUN! Each student will get a FREE fund run t-shirt and participate with their class in a 20 minute color run event on March 3rd during their specified class run time (schedule to come). Leading up to the big day we will work together as a school to raise funds to support our school and highlight healthy a healthy lifestyle. Funds will be collected digitally and totals updated daily on the website and bi weekly on our barometer at the front of the building. Help us reach our goal!!!
Parent participation is very much encouraged at this event this year! Sign up now and get all of the details!
What are we raising money for?
PTO uses our annual fund run as an event to raise money that will put directly back into our school. In the past this is how we have funded key updates for students such as outdoor sinks, water fountain updates, playground updates, technology applications, and PD for our teachers.
This year, our hope is to raise enough money to update our dated front letterboard sign to a state of the art digital sign. This will allow us to communicate the happenings at our school with parents more quickly and accurately on a daily basis.
Please join in the FUN and help FUND our efforts to support are wonderful school.
How do we collect funds?
This year we will be using an online platform called 99 pledges to collect and track our donations. Students can use our school’s link to solicit donations from family, friends, and community members (please only solicit from those you know!! Safety first!) Donations will be made through this website via credit or venmo and transferred to our Brockman PTO account. A 2.9% + $.30 per donation is taken from each donation to pay for this platform. Brockman family can come back to this site over and over again to manage their donations and see our most current fundraising total.
Collection kick off goes live Feb. 13th and will end at the end of the day March 3rd. Each week will bring new exciting ways for us to connect as a community in our fundraising efforts and motivate towards our goal!
How does the color run work?
Students will go with their class (two at time) to the upper field a designated times during the day on March 3rd to run their allotted 20 minutes. This schedule will go out to all no later than February 17th.
While running, each 5 minutes a different color will be showered from the participants onto the runners giving them a rainbow of colors to show for their progress. The colored power is made of cornstarch and coloring and is completely washable. You can soak your child’s shirt in vinegar upon returning home to set the color into their shirts for easy wash and re-wear with Brockman pride.
How do parents participate?
There are TWO major ways that parents can participate in our color run:
- As a SPECTATOR – FREE! Come watch and cheer your child in during their class run time.
- As a PARTICIPANT – Buy color packets for 5$ to join in the color showering fun during our parent powder time! (Recommended one packet per child.)
