CES Challenger Challenge

Monday, September 18, 2017 (All day) to Friday, October 27, 2017 (All day)

The Challenger Challenge is the largest PTA fundraiser of the year, and if it goes well, it will be our ONLY large fundraiser.  That’s right, no wrapping paper and no cookie dough! Won’t it be nice to have our programs like Family Fun Night, All Pro Dad, Field Day and the Science Fair be fully funded?

This is how you can help! The Challenger Challenge is all about teamwork! Each classroom teacher has a fundraising website. The class works together to collect online donations and earn fun activities as they raise money. 

Are you collecting cash or checks or just don’t like using the online system? That’s OK too. Teachers will be collecting money every Friday during the Challenger Challenge. Just be sure the teacher’s name is on the envelope you send in so we can give credit in the right place!

This fundraiser starts NOW through Friday 10/27/17.  There will be updates throughout the Challenger Challenge on classroom progress and which classes are in the lead! The grand prize will be announced at Family Fun Night on October 27th!!

The capstone event will be a Challenger Challenge course during PE class on Friday, October 27th hosted by The A&M Track and Field Team!

If the entire school reaches $13,500, the teachers will put on a talent show for the school!
