The Panther Run is our biggest PTA fundraiser of the year! Each year the PTA raises funds for a specific goal to help enhance our school.
How it works
Students ask family, friends and neighbors for a flat donation. The money the student raises goes towards their donation goal and prizes are given to those who raise the most money.
If a student raises $100 or more, the student will be able to participate in Fun Friday complete with a bounce house, obstacle course, games and pizza.
If a student raises $200 or more, the student will ride in a limo with our principal to Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch.
We also have a raffle for students who raise $25 and $50.
Prizes we have given away in the past:
4 tickets to Sea World
4 tickets to Aquatica
4 - 1 day Park Hopper tickets to Walt Disney World
SkyZone and BOING! Jump Passes
Passes to the Florida Aquarium, Glazier Children's Museum, Ice Sports Forum, Tree Hoppers, and The Alley
Gift Certificates to Dave & Busters and Top Golf
and much more...
Each year every student, teacher and staff member receives a Panther Run shirt (around 1200 shirts total). The students wear their shirts on the day of our Panther Run and many times they are worn during field trips throughout the school year. This is an excellent opportunities for our community businesses to not only support our school, but it is also great advertisement!
For every ad (regardless of level) that a student sells, they will receive a $50 credit towards their total funds raised.
Panther Run Day
Each grade will take turns running laps around the basketball courts. There will be music to keep the students pumped up and water & snacks to keep them energized! Each lap the students make will be marked off by a volunteer.
