Race for Education

7 Day Challenge!

March 1st - March 7th

7, 17 or 37 minutes a day or 70 minutes for 1 day during spirit week of any activity

 

The 2021 Race for Education funds will be used for facilities and technology. 

Goal: To raise $40,000

Water Dispensers: There are currently drinking fountains on the school campus. These will be updated to water dispensers so students can refill their water bottles. It is now especially important as we work to prevent the spread of germs. 

Updating SMART boards: Each classroom currently has a Promethean Board. These interactive boards were installed in classrooms starting in 2007. With advances in technology, it is important that these boards are updated. This process will begin in the summer of 2021.





Choose any amount of time you are willing

to commit: 7, 17 or 37 minutes a day during

7 days of Lutheran Schools' Spirit Week or 70 mins for 1 day!

QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE:

What if I miss one of the days logging in my activity?

Don’t worry if you miss logging in your child's activity during spirit week, you will have time to log it in before the fundraiser ends March 31st. We encourage you to log in so your child will be eligible to receive their digital badges.


What kinds of challenges count for prizes?

Any workout type of activity that you complete with the *intention* to exercise will count. For example, walking, jogging, hiking, running, biking, swimming, yoga, shooting hoops, walking the dog, etc. will all count. Doing your homework, house chores, gaming, etc. do NOT count. The key word is the workout must be done *intentionally* with the purpose of exercising.


What is the fundraising goal?

Our school goal this year is to raise $40,000 and the goal for each child is to raise $150. The top fundraiser of each class will receive a trophy.


How is my child eligible for prizes and awards?

Your child must participate in one of the activity challenges and will be eligible for virtual prizes and awards based on the amount raised. The highest fundraiser of each class will receive a trophy. The top 3 fundraisers in the school, the top teacher and the top class will be eligible for prizes. If your child raises $150.00 or more they will be added to a special raffle.
