Hello Dolphin Fans! Our Rock N Run event is the largest fundraiser for our school.
Expect it to be different in 2020, but the PTA is going to do its best to keep the tradition alive!
Please direct any questions you may have to Fundraising@slpta.org
Historically, here is what Rock N Run is like for our new families, staff and teachers:
Rock N Run is a two-week event during which time each grade fundraises. On the Rock N Run day, students go outside to run laps as part of a fun-filled day.
The Friday before the main event is a pep rally for the entire school – and there’s a good chance the students will be visited by Bubbles!
The Friday after Rock N Run is prize day where the student can enjoy many of the prizes they earned. The prizes change some each year, but generally include DJ Recess, a treat truck visit, classroom money for book fair, an inflatable obstacle course, and many, many more. Prizes are earned by class to ensure all of the students have an opportunity to enjoy the prizes.
The primary donors to the SLES Rock N Run are the friends and families of our students, but we also rely on sponsors to help us reach our goal. Because we keep 100% of the proceeds, we try to use Rock N Run to fund all of the PTA needs for the year.
Funds raised from Rock ‘n’ Run purchase laptops and iPads; support the Outdoor Education program in our unique Discovery Garden; support the STEAM, music and library programs; fill classroom libraries; add new curricula; fund teacher team purchases for their grades; fund community and student enrichment activities like Spelling Bee, Talent Show, Earth Art Night, and more!
In addition, the 6th grade uses the funds they raise to fund their expenses throughout the year, including a “team building” picnic, class trip to Baltimore, end of year “Lock-In” party to celebrate 6th grade promotion, and a special class t-shirt.
