PTA is a vital part of our school. We encourage you to join the PTA and to volunteer within our school. We believe that a strong parent/teacher partnership is beneficial to our children’s success. We welcome your participation and hope you will stay connected with your PTA!
What is the Fit-a-thon?
Our Lil’ Wildcat Fit-a-thon will be on Friday, September 21st starting at 8:30 AM. Each grade will go through a variety of stations to include a run/walk, sports and fitness stations for 30 minutes total. Even the Dallas Stars are coming by to help us make the event a little more exciting with their mascot, a hockey goal and a goodie bag for everyone!! Our Kickoff for the Fit-a-thon will be during Friday Morning Live (FML) on Friday, September 7th! We’d love to have you join us!
FUNDRAISING GOAL: Our goal this year is to raise $40,000 net, meaning we are targeting to raise approximately $50,000 to ensure we cover all of our expenses, to include a t-shirt for everyone, management of our website, prizes and additional expenses that come along. The Gunstream PTA will be organizing this year’s Fit-a-thon to maximize the impact of every dollar collected! Students will be taking pledges starting on Sept. 7 – Sept. 28, 2018 using the GetMovingCrew.com website, cash, or checks.
WHY?!? To best support our school be staying up to date with technology, updating playground equipment and school, help our teachers not have to use their own money to stay up to date with curriculum and provide enrichment and social programs for teachers, students and families!
