2014 Dragon Dash “Decorate A Shoe” sign due tomorrow: Wednesday, September 24th

Dragon Dash “Decorate a Shoe” sign due: Wednesday, September 24th

Dragon Dash is just around the corner! If you haven’t turned in your “decorate a shoe” sign, now is the time to do it! It’s due tomorrow: Wednesday, September 24th.

Prepare to cheer on the kids as they run, jog, or walk to raise funds for our school! In the spirit of encouragement, we invite you to make a sign for your child(ren):

1. Print out a pair of running shoes

2. Include your child’s First Name, Last Name, Grade and Teacher somewhere on the shoes so they can be posted in an area where your child is most likely to see them.

3. Be creative! Decorate the shoes with a message, family motto, inspiring quote, or a simple line of encouragement. Parents can decorate them as a surprise – or get the whole famly involved!

4. Return the finished sheet to the box in the school office by Wednesday, September 24th.

The kids will LOVE to find their special shoes and message around the school!

Findley Dragon Dash is October 1st. Go, Dragons!

Dear Findley Parents,

We NEED to kick this up into high gear as we only have 9 more days until Dragon Dash! Pledge Envelopes and/or Pledge Star donations are due, at the latest by Thursday, October 9th.

We’ve added these fun Class and Grade incentives to help motivate the kids (in addition to the already great list of prizes and raffles).

If 80% of a CLASS participates, they get a DONUT PARTY.

If 100% of a CLASS participates, they get a MOVIE & POPCORN PARTY.

If 80% of the entire GRADE participates, they get an EXTRA RECESS.

If 100% of the entire GRADE participates, they get FREE SIT AT LUNCH FOR 1 WEEK.
