Hello Findley Parents!

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year at Findley Elementary! The Findley PTO is happy to be back to support the students, teachers, and staff at Findley for the 2020-2021 school year in this virtual capacity. Friday, September 18th begins our main fundraising event known as the Dragon Dash. If you’re NEW to Findley, Welcome!, and thanks for joining our wonderful community. Since we’re virtual this Fall, things will look a bit different than in previous years. All of our communications will be via email. All of our usual paper communications have been condensed and the information can be found within our Findley PTO website, https://www.findleypto.com/fundraising/dragon-dash/

This year’s event will be held for an entire week! Starting Monday, 10/5 and continuing through Friday, 10/9, your student(s) will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of physical activities at home to earn a BINGO. Each activity should take about five minutes. Students are encouraged to take photos or videos and email them to dragondashpm@gmail.com. We will compile student submissions into a slideshow that will be shared school-wide later this year. 

Due to the inaccessibility of the Findley campus, fundraising will be completely digital and all donations can be made securely through PledgeStar, our fundraising partner for many Dragon Dash events. Additional details for this year’s event and sign up information on PledgeStar can be found in the document attached. The fundraising dollars collected by the Findley PTO have funded many clubs, science fairs, teacher support, technology, field improvements, and many other areas within Findley. Even though we’re starting out this school year with comprehensive distance learning, the fundraising dollars are still critical to continue to provide support to field and playground improvements, water filling station installations, and a variety of teacher/student support at Findley. With that in mind, we’ve reduced the suggested donation amount per student this year to $50. More information about reward levels, raffle prizes and information about PledgeStar can be found in the Dragon Dash section of our Findley PTO website on Tuesday, September 15th. 

Lastly, thank you for your support of the Dragon Dash and Findley PTO. Any questions can be directed to our parent volunteers at dragondashpm@gmail.com.

Thank you, 

Findley PTO
