About Fun Run
The Fun Run, sponsored by the MPCS Foundation, is school’s first fundraiser of the year and is typically one our largest moneymakers.
We strive to make all children feel they can participate regardless of their running ability. It’s supposed to be fun, right? This year we focused on lump sum donations (vs. per lap pledges) and encouraged our classes to reach their class goal which equalled $100 per child of fundraising efforts in order to meet our event goal of raising $55,000 for 2023-2024 school year! We did AMAZING by raising over $53,000!!
What Does the Money Go Toward?
The money raised from FUN RUN goes towards:
- The Games department
- Campus enhancements (like our beautiful and beloved grades playground, and a new future ECE playground)
- Music, Art, and Theater programs
- Continuing education for our teachers
- Field trips
- Scholarships for instruments
For each classroom that reaches its financial goal, a monetary reward will deposited into their classroom account which can be used towards classroom needs and field trips. This year, each classroom has the ability to earn $400 towards their classroom accounts when they reach their fundraising goal.
It takes our WHOLE VILLAGE to make our school such an amazing and magical place for our kids and community.
