Kiker PTA Hassle Free Fundraiser
Each fall the Kiker PTA runs Love Your School, our no-hassle fundraising campaign. By hassle-free, we mean no buying unnecessary things, or having our children sell things to friends and neighbors. We simply ask for online donations. 100% of these funds stay right here at Kiker and directly support our students and teachers. With these funds, the PTA funds vital improvements to our classrooms and campus, as well as provides programming for our students and families.
This year, the Kiker PTA’s Love Your School fundraising campaign runs from October 18th through November 1st, 2019. Our goal is to raise $25,000 to support our students and teachers. We would LOVE for every Kiker family to participate– no donation amount is too small! To encourage support from every family, we have a competition for classes with the highest participation in Love Your School. The top five classes will be awarded with:
1st Place– Big Bubba Match for the winning class vs. Principal Crissey and an All-Star Teacher Team
2nd Place– Movie Party with Principal Crissey with juice and popcorn
3rd Place– Glow in the Dark Dance Party
4th Place– Fancy lunch on stage with Principal Crissey
5th Place– Crazy hair and sock day
As an added incentive, every class that reaches 100% participation by end of day Tuesday, October 22nd will receive a special popsicle treat!
Great communities create and sustain great schools, and we are an exceptional community. Please help the Kiker PTA support its organizational mission to “make every child’s potential a reality.” Give today!
Every Gift Makes a Difference!
