Alpine Elementary PTA Fundraiser & Fun Run
Fun Run PTA Fundraiser
This week, we are excited to host this year’s Fun Run PTA Fundraiser! Last week, your student should have come home with a flyer with information surrounding this week’s Fun Run PTA Fundraiser, including details around the Fun Run itself happening THIS FRIDAY, September 30th, from 12:00 pm – 3:15 PM at Creekside Park. I have attached the full flyer with all the details, but just a few things to keep in mind:
Goal: Our fundraiser goal is $15,000. Your generous contributions this week directly enable several programs that would not be possible otherwise, which in turn support 4 fundamental goals for Alpine Elementary, including:
Creating opportunities to strengthen school unity
Promoting health & wellness
Encouraging attitudes of acceptance, kindness, & respect
Creating a culture that learning is exciting & fun
Our many PTA programs taking place throughout the school year, including Running Club, Kindness Club, Walk-to-School Wednesdays, the Chinese Lantern Festival, Red Ribbon Week (drug safety & awareness), White Ribbon Week (Internet safety), Battle of the Books, Fall Festival, Family Fun Nights, and the School Spring Carnival are some of the many programs your donations make possible!
Lunch from Chick-fil-A & Extra Recesses: One class from EACH GRADE with the most donations (averaged per student) will win lunch from Chick-fil-A!
How to Donate: There are multiple ways to donate this week, and you may donate anytime Monday through Friday! You may either send cash or check (payable to: Alpine Elementary PTA) in the envelope attached to last week’s flyer, or pay online (a small percentage charge is added) by visiting https:// alpineelementary.memberhub. com/store# or by scanning the QR code in the attached flyer to go directly to the site. Just PLEASE select YOUR CHILD’S HOMEROOM TEACHER when paying online so his or her class gets credit for your donation!
Fun Run Schedule at Creekside Park on Friday, September 30: Come support your students as they participate in the Fun Run! Thanks to the generous contributions of Doterra, all Alpine Elementary students will be getting an Alpine Elementary t-shirt for the run! Below is when each class will be running at the park. They will run for 15 minutes, grab a snack and then head back to class.

This is such a fun activity for the entire family to enjoy! Please note, there will be a small percentage charge added on to the cost if you are paying by credit card.
Last week, the students had an assembly about the Reflections Art Program. Reflections is an incredible nation-wide program put on by the PTA that encourages children to be creative and involved in the arts. There is no fee to participate and there are several art categories. This year’s theme is “Show your voice…” and the submission deadline is in October. Here is a link for information on how to create art for Reflections and what the rules are: Reflections Information for Parents | UtahPTA.org
