Greetings Jaguar Families and Friends,We are excited to announce Folsom Middle School's largest ANNUAL SCHOOL FUNDRAISER begins this weekend. Shortly, you will receive an email with a link from 99 Pledges (our service provider). Simply click the link to pledge an amount to your student's own, unique pledge page. You can also share the link with family, friends, and businesses to help your student raise funds for their Group. Each week, Groups with the most progress will win a class party. We're shooting for 100% participation, so no amount is too small.
WE'RE ASKING EACH FAMILY TO RAISE $50. You may notify family, friends, neighbors, and businesses by sharing your individual pledge page link. Imagine: if 5 people donated $10 (tax-deductible) then each student would reach their goal!
DONATIONS ARE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE. Jagathon is sponsored by Folsom Middle School Parent Teacher Organization- a registered, 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization. (Federal Tax ID # 68-0187183). No goods or services are received in return for this donation.
OUR PARTICIPATION GOAL IS AT LEAST 50%! If 700 of our ~1,400 Jaguar families raised $50 each, we will reach our goal!
WORKING TOGETHER, our goal is to raise $35,000 for our school. EVERY Academic Department and EVERY Student at FMS receives this funding, as well as Clubs, Arts, Music, and Athletics. It was so great to see the excitement in students' faces during Club Rush today! We want to make sure we raise enough money to support your students' interests and supply our valuable counselors, teacher and volunteers with materials they need to make your students' extracurricular experience rewarding!
JAGATHON is our school's largest - and most important - Annual Community Giving Campaign. Administrators, Teachers, Staff, and Parent Volunteers work together to guide and encourage each student to do their best!
Will you help them reach their goal? Your donation directly impacts ~1,400 students and 100 staff members for the entire 2021-2022 school year!
SAFETY of our Jaguars is our highest priority. For the safety of our Students and Staff, our Jagathon will take place throughout the school day in smaller groups, outdoors, applying all necessary and appropriate health and safety precautions.
INDIVIDUAL BEST! FUN DAY! FUN RUN! The 2021-22 JAGATHON will take place on FRIDAY, OCTBER 15th. Students are encouraged to run/walk as many laps as possible in 20 minutes. Music, souvenirs, and frozen confections for all! Fundraising ends October 30th.
FRIENDLY COMPETITION! This year, Fundraising Teams will be organized by P.E. Teachers, such as Team Burke. The Team to raise the highest amount of funding each week will receive community recognition and Team parties. (Please note that some of our students are still being assigned to their P.E. Teacher's Team. If you notice your student is without a Team, or assigned to a Teacher other than his/her regular P.E. Teacher, you may wait for an update this weekend, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request an update.)
