BOOSTERTHON SUCCESS - $16,000 RAISED FOR OUR SCHOOL!

With 97% participation from our school families in the Boosterthon, we exceeded expectations by raising $16,000!   We are in awe at what a success the Boosterthon Fun Run was. Historically, the UEPTO raises approximately $6,000 each year via our Booster Drive, with 20-30% participation from school families.  Due to the phenomenal success of the Boosterthon Fun Run, the PTO will be able to drastically reduce the number of fundraisers this year.

This would not have been possible without the support of the teachers, Mr. Beaver, the administrative staff, and parent volunteers.

The Boosterthon team did an outstanding job! They spent 9 full days in our school and provided administrative support for 2 weeks following the run. In total we had 28 assemblies for our school children, in eight of the nine days.

This is what it looked like each day:

  • DAY ONE kicked off with a Pep Rally in the gym

  • DAYS TWO thru EIGHT, the students received community challenge lessons (small group huddles at recess with the Boosterthon coaches) and fun school rewards

  • DAY NINE, Fun Run Day! The Boosterthon Team set up all the obastacles, tents, and water stations

Coach Dave was an awesome MC at the Fun Run and great music kept the kids pumped to complete the challenge after they all made a grand entrance through the tunnel.

This is what your children learned during the small group huddles from the Boosterthon team:

5 community Challenges

  •  Plug in To serve – serving others means putting someone else's needs in front of your own. Volunteering in community and serving family by asking how can you help them.
  •  Amplify Others-  having the power to make others stronger with our words. Use positive words and max them out like a meter.
  • Listen for feedback –Parents and teachers have great feedback. Helpful advice gives us the opportunity to grow and be better people.
  • Play Hard- in whatever we play,(sports, instrument, the arts) it is important to spend 60 minutes a day improving skills, playing hard and staying healthy.
  • Thank your crowd- our biggest fans are our parents and teachers. Say THANK YOU. Showing gratitude is a sign of community.

Thank you to the school families, their relatives and friends, and the teachers and school staff who all donated to this program to make it such a huge achievement.

and Liz Hunt for putting on a fun outside party for New Family Pizza Night. It was a great opportunity to get to know some of our new parents and their wonderful kids. A fun time was had by all.

We are incredibly excited to give everyone the good news about the Boosterthon. It was a huge success!! The PTO raised over $16,000 for the school!! This money will all go back to our kids and school in the form of assemblies, equipment, and tools our teachers can use to enhance our kids scholastic experience. Mr. Beaver and the teachers were very pleased with the staff of the Boosterthon. They kept our kids excited about raising money for the school while learning important and life-long character lessons daily. We look forward to working with the Boosterthon team again in the future.

Our Fall Picture day will be October 7Th. Our schools will be closed on the 13TH. Enjoy your day off! 

Please join us for our very first Family Fun Night at the Marlborough Valley Corn Maze on October 16Th starting at 6:30. RSVPs are due October 10Th. Soft pretzels, hot cocoa, and local apple cider will be provided. Please see the UEPTO website for more info. The PTO will be collecting coats, hats, gloves, etc. that evening for the Annual UCFSD Coat Drive. We hope to see you all there.

Mark your calendars! We have UE night at the Liberty Marketplace in Kennett on Thursday October 23. Come and enjoy a cooking free night with dinner, wine, and dessert. A portion of the proceeds that evening will go directly to the PTO. We are looking forward to seeing you there.

Remember to join us for the PTO meeting on October 24Th. Dr Sanville will be joining us to discuss the possible redistricting of our district. Please come to this very informative meeting.

Our Halloween Parade will be at 2:15 this year on Halloween. A quick reminder about parking at UE. Please squeeze in between the lines to fit as many cars as possible in the front lot and visitors parking spots.

It sounds like a very busy month of October. Enjoy the nice weather!

NOPE is a prevention program that is offered to middle and high school students. The presentations are purposefully blunt and evoke powerful emotions. The response from students, parents and teachers has been very positive. Many students seek guidance after the presentation for themselves or to get help for their friends. Consistent positive findings show that the presentations given in each of these participant groups have had significant impact on the knowledge and attitudes of those exposed to the NOPE program.
