Boosterthon is in the home stretch - just under 42 hours until our adorable Pre-primary students run through the Boosterthon tunnel and onto the Fun Run track!
Our PTA works hard to supplement the limited and unpredictable funds our school receives from the county.
Boosterthon raises money that pays for visible capital improvements around school that help make it the beautiful place we send our children to each day. It also provides supplemental funds for our school library, classroom computers and educational software that helps our kids successfully apply their Montessori learning to the less Montessori-like format of standardized testing.
One of the reasons Axson is such a nice school compared to its public school cousins is because of the PTA and its fundraising efforts.
This year, we are at risk of coming up short of our fundraising goal with reduced participation to date year-over-year.
Last year, halfway through Boosterthon, 83% of Axson students were registered on FunRun.com.
This year, just 72% had created or reactivated their accounts at the halfway mark (Monday night).
In 2014, 71% of Axson students (about 400 kids) had collected pledges by the halfway point
This year, we were at 59% (about 333) halfway through.
As of this afternoon, with just two days to go, 63% of our students have secured pledges. While there's certainly room to grow, way to go Axson!
We are appreciative and grateful for every single pledge - every penny matters when it comes to helping our school be the special place it is for our children.
There is still time to participate and sponsor your student as he or she runs 30-35 laps in support of their school. Log on to funrun.com today and create an account to get started!
