What is Rock N Run?
“Rock N Run” is a Stratford Landing Elementary tradition that brings the community together, gets kids excited for the year, and creates a substantial baseline to meet financial needs for school-wide events.
We are especially proud of how this event has grown, and how it enables us to support ALL students and families of Stratford Landing.
Rock N Run 2023 is Friday, October 20th!
How Does Rock N Run Work?
Students collect donations from parents, family, and friends to contribute to the school’s overall fundraising goal prior to Run Day and earn different levels of school-wide prizes to enjoy together. [It’s not based on how many laps they run.]
All students receive a t-shirt (color coded by grade), head out to the field, and run or walk around the track as many times as they can, energized by our fabulous DJ. Parent volunteers place tick-marks with permanent markers on the back of students’ shirts to count their laps.
What do Rock N Run Funds support?
Rock N Run is an amazing community-building fundraiser that helps the PTA partner with our school community to support student enrichment. Rock N Run funds:
- Help maintain the SLES Discovery Garden
- Fund teacher appreciation events including Teacher Appreciation Week every May
- Support classrooms by purchasing new materials and the reusable library bags every student received at the start of school
- Assist with our school’s Care & Share program by allowing the PTA to supply snacks, book fair credit, and field trip fee assistance for students in our community who qualify for additional support
- And so much more! Every contribution is valuable and makes a difference, no matter the amount!
