APPLE FITNESS CHALLENGE
October 9th-20th 2017
Let’s have fun, exercise, and raise funds for a good cause!
This year’s WHE Apple Fitness Challenge kicks off Monday, October 9th. Students are encouraged to collect pledges from family, friends and the community. We aim to raise at least $150 per student and every dollar raised goes directly towards our technology and innovation program. This year, our teachers and administration are working hard to renew our Apple Distinguished School status and part of that certification will involve purchasing new devices for our students. This type of program is not funded by LAUSD. It’s up to us, as a community, to keep West Hollywood Elementary innovative and ensure that our students acquire the skills necessary to succeed in the world in which they will live and work.
All pledges will be collected by teachers in the morning on Wednesday, October 18th. Then on Friday, October 20th, we are planning an exciting fitness challenge for all students to participate in and prove they are willing to sweat in order to raise money for our school’s innovative technology program. Winners will also be announced on Friday during the fitness challenge event.
One $100 gift card to Amazon. com to the student who fundraises the most in the school.
INDIVIDUAL GRADE LEVEL PRIZES:
The top earning student from each grade level (TK-5) will win a $50 Amazon.com gift card. (***When you shop on Amazon remember to use AmazonSmile so the school will get a donation from Amazon)
Each class that achieves 100% participation will receive a popsicle party during school hours!
HOW IT WORKS:
Students ask sponsors to pledge money for completing the fitness challenge circuit. An easy way to raise money is to spread your sponsorships among many people. If everyone asks 10 donors for $15, it’s easy to hit the $150 goal. All donations are tax-deductible. (Our tax ID # is 38-3708391).
