The Challenger Challenge

Monday, September 10, 2018 (All day) to Friday, October 26, 2018 (All day)

The Challenger Challenge is the largest PTA fundraiser of the year and if it goes well, it will be our only fundraiser.

The Challenger Challenge is all about teamwork! Each classroom teacher has a fundraising website to collect online donations. As each class reaches fundraising goals, the students will earn fun activities, or prize levels (listed below).

Additionally, teachers will be collecting cash and checks each 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!

There will be updates about the Challenger Challenge on the GMC show and via email until its culmination on Family Fun Night on October 26. The grand prize winning class will be announced on Family Fun Night!

Our goal is $13,500. If we reach that goal we will have a school-wide parade. The capstone event will be the Challenger Challenge course during PE class on October 26.
