Fun Run

We’re so excited to host a Fun Run to help our school! This year’s Fun Run will be slightly different from previous years, but we’re certain the kids will have a blast. We are happy to have fun together. 

 

To increase the excitement and school spirit of this event, the PTO would like to provide each student with a FREE AGS or EC “You Belong Here” t-shirt to wear the day of the Fun Run event, at no cost to the student or school. 

 

In order to make this happen, we usually gather sponsorships from local businesses. We will have opportunities to support local businesses this coming year, but we weren’t ready to start asking our neighbors for sponsorships just yet. So while fundraising for events and supplies for our school, we’ll also be hoping to cover the cost of the “You Belong Here” shirts for every student.

 

Our goal for the Fun Run is to raise $10,000 towards our overall goal of raising $23,000 this year. If we reach our goal we have an extra exciting game to play during our final assembly on October 14. We hope you can set aside time in your afternoon to join us on the field (weather permitting) at 2:35 pm on Thursday, October 14. 

 

Thanks so much for your help with strengthening our school!

  • Supplies & Celebrations (Tools for Students)

  • Curriculum Support (Tools for Teachers)

  • School Assemblies (Fun for Everyone)

Watch your email for an invitation to your student’s personal fundraising link with 99Pledges. (They set up and host our event online for FREE!) You can even choose to update your student’s FUNdraising page with a picture of them.


FAQs

  1. How can my student participate in fundraising? 

 

You will receive a personal link in a separate email from 99Pledges to share with family, friends, and anyone who would like to contribute to our amazing school community. If you haven’t seen this email, make sure to check your spam filter. If you still don’t have it, email President@AGSPTO.org. Or go to https://app.99pledges.com/fund/agsecpto2021/addme to set-up a link for your student.

  2.  Can my student accept cash/checks for fundraising?

 

Absolutely! Checks need to be made out to “AGS PTO”. Both cash and checks can be sent to the school office with your student’s name (so we know who to give credit to) and address the envelope to “2021 Fun Run”. 

  3.  How do the students win prizes? 

 

Invite your friends and family to support our school community using your student’s Fun Run fundraising link. Your child can earn SpiritWear based on the prize level they reach. Your student will earn SpiritWear for the school (AGS or EC) they attend.

  4.  How will I get the appropriate size SpiritWear my student earns?

Your student will receive a certificate with their name and prizes listed. In the weeks following the Fun Run the AGS/EC PTO will begin taking orders for SpiritWear. You’ll then submit your order and sizing information along with your student’s certificate to redeem their credit.
 

  5.  What if my student would prefer to raise money and not earn SpiritWear?

 

We appreciate any and all levels of participation in this event. If you would also like to cut the costs of this event you may opt-out of receiving SpiritWear prizes. To do this, simply fundraise using the following links. 

Gus: https://app.99pledges.com/fund/agsecpto2021/gator-gus
Bitty: https://app.99pledges.com/fund/agsecpto2021/bitty-bulldog

  6.  Do I have to use the online form for fundraising?

 

This year we moved to a mostly online platform for fundraising. We know sometimes our friends and family still want the simple Pledge Form method. We are here to help our friends as one of our students was excited about decorating a jar to collect donations from friends. If you'd like to print your own paper Pledge Form to turn in cash and check donations please follow this link: https://tinyurl.com/AGSECPledgeSheet

  7.  How does earning the Spirit Wear work? Do the children only earn the item for the final amount that they earn or do they earn each piece of gear for each amount raised? 

 

​Once your student hits a certain level in fundraising they will get that prize and everything from each level prior to it.
