Shamrock Shuffle
March 11, 2016

    The Media News Team is hosting the Shamrock Shuffle a fitness event, to help raise money for technology.  We chose to integrate this fundraiser with Lincoln’s fitness initiative.  We want to spread the excitement of getting active to improve our physical fitness and general good health while raising money for a good cause. 

    The Shamrock Shuffle will take place on Friday March 11th.  All students are welcome to participate in this event.

    Our fundraising goal is $5000, which is about $20 per student, however any amount would be very much appreciated.  One class from Kindergarten through 2nd grade and one class from 3rd through 5th grade that raise the most money will celebrate with an ice cream party!

    On Friday March 11th, all students will be encouraged to wear green in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day and the coming of spring!  Each class will walk around a “track” for 10 minutes.  Each time a student completes a lap he or she will get a ticket.  Students can redeem their tickets for snacks and refreshments at the Shamrock Shuffle. 

    Please help us reach or fundraising goal of $5000 for our technology program!  Technology has become an integral part of our students’ learning experience.  Gone are the days of using a computer to just check on the weather or email.  Our students are using technology to connect, research, produce, and share.  Technology resources are critical in supporting our new language arts and math programs, and the Smarter Balanced assessment.  We are continually trying to upgrade and build on our current resources.

    So, keep an eye out for donation envelope, marked Shamrock Shuffle, that your child received their communication folder on March 2nd.  Support an active, healthy lifestyle for your child with a donation.  Thank you!
