Pedal for Hope @ Sophiasburgh Central School
Pedal for Hope is returning to Sophiasburgh Central School on May 1, 2015. Pedal for Hope is an event at our school on May 1 put together by local police officers to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer. A team of local police officers and guest riders will be riding their bikes through the Quinte area, visiting schools on their way. Riders are expected to arrive at 10:30 where they will be greeted by staff and students. A brief assembly will follow.
This year 10% of the funds raised from our spring fundraiser will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society through the Pedal for Hope initiative, and the school will be holding some small special events to support our efforts. In addition to this, we will invite students to bring in a loonie or toonie in to be collected directly by one of the police officers on the day of the event.
Families may choose to make additional contributions directly to Pedal for Hope through our school’s Pedal for Hope sponsor page. The link for this can be found on the home page of our school’s website (http://sophiasburgh.hpedsb.on.ca/ ) and will be shared out on our school’s Facebook page as well. If individual students would like to collect pledges to shave their head/cut their hair on that day, individual pledge pages can be created by choosing the “Register” tab on the School’s Pedal for Hope page and then choosing the “Join and Existing Team”. There, you will be able to choose to join the Sophiasburgh Central School team. This allows you to keep track of the funds you and the school have raised, and also send an electronic link to friends and family who may wish to sponsor you. Permission signatures are required from parents for any student participating in Head Shave/Hair Cuts on the day of the event, and parents can request this form from our main office.
Sophiasburgh Central School’s Rockin’ Readathon 2015
This year School Council has decided to focus their fundraising efforts on 2 main events that involved little to no overhead to maximize the percentage of funds raised that stay in our school. Our fall basket raffle fundraiser was a great success, and for the spring the Council has agreed to hold a Rockin’ Readathon. On May 8, 2015 students will commit to doing 2 straight hours of rockin’ and reading. For alternating 20 minute blocks they will be either participating in Celebration of Dance activities or reading, without a break, for 2 full hours and students will ask for sponsorship to recognize their completion of the challenge. We have committed 10% of funds raised to support the Pedal for Hope campaign, which is an event at our school on May 1 put together by local police officers to raise money and awareness for childhood cancer. Families may choose to make additional contributions directly to Pedal for Hope, and further details about on this webpage.
Our goal is to raise $3750 through our spring fundraiser, which would be met if every student in our school secured five $5 sponsors, or surpassed with three $10 sponsors. Your fall fundraising helped us to install soundfield amplication systems in 2 classrooms. We will have special recognition for the top fundraisers and the top fundraising classroom (per capita)!
