Dash for Dudley
Friday, January 31 8:30am - 12:30 pm
For any that aren’t familiar with Dash for Dudley, it is an awesome event where kids have 15 minutes to do laps with their class, with music playing and parents cheering all the while. Beyond that, Dash for Dudley is our ONLY source of funding for SCHOOL FIELD TRIPS.
How does that work, you ask? A pledge form will go home in a Thursday folder soon. (PDFs of these forms coming soon). BEFORE the event, you and your child talk to people to get pledges. Pledges can be per lap or a fixed amount. RECORD them on the pledge form. AFTER the event, every child will come home with a lap verification form stating how many laps they did. You collect pledges from those on your pledge form and either return to the office or submit via Paypal. It’s that easy.
This is a great opportunity to reach out to a larger community for support. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, neighbors. Every little bit counts.
Note that all children must have a signed permission slip to participate. These will be sent home soon and must be returned to teachers. A pdf of the permission slip can be downloaded soon.
We also need LOTS of help during the event. Each class needs parents to pass out water and rubber bands while they do laps and more parents to cheer.
Please sign up to help your class through SignUp genius (coming soon), and consider coming early or staying after to help cheer on other classes!
