PTO’s Color Me FUNd Run

The PTO is putting on their one big annual fundraiser in September. Please see the information below:

Dear PPSEL Families,

We are so excited to bring you the 4thAnnual Color Me FUNd Run! This epic FUNdraising event will take place on Friday, September 28, 2018.This is the only FUNdraiser the PTO conducts, and we like to go big. 100% of the profits from this event stay at PPSEL, as this FUNdraiser is administered entirely by the PTO and PPSEL family volunteers.

This pledge sheet is for your student to reach out to family members, coaches, best friends, etc. Please record the name of the donor and the amount. FUNds can be in cash, check or online donation. Please circle the type of donation on your pledge sheet. Make checks payable to PPSEL. (We ask you send a check for each student, as combining multiple students on a single check is an accounting headache.) Online donations can be made by visiting the PPSEL Website (www.ppsel.org), and clicking on the “Donate” buttons. Pledge sheets & funds will be collected on Wednesday, 26 Sep 2018.

The PTO has set a goal of $20,000 for this year’s run. That is approximately $47 per student. The FUNds we raise go directly to our classrooms to support our teachers through the Wish List system. Past purchases include new band lockers, wobble seats, projectors, and classroom storage systems.

Please follow our PPSEL PTO Facebook page for up-to-date information, and the opportunity to ask questions. You can also share our video(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5OTQ4akFMQ)to friends and family from the PTO Page.

Thank you for your support of our fabulous PPSEL community!

FAQ’s

– What if my student is sensitive to dyes?
If your child is allergic or unwilling to have color thrown at them, please have your student wear a black shirt. PPSEL PTO is working with PurColor, (http://celebrationpowder.com/). Please take a moment to visit our video from last year’s event to help familiarize your student with the process (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5OTQ4akFMQ)

– Do you need help?
ABSOLUTELY! Please visit https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080e4fadad29a4f85-2018 or contact the Color Me FUNd Run team (reneegj@comcast.net, amanda@magnafuel.com, jennymd@gmail.com, danny.laura.weems@hotmail.com)

– Can I come watch my kid run?

For sure! For free! Keep in mind, volunteers have a better line of sight! Plus volunteers receive a FREE Parent Pack.

 – Is there a spirit week with this event?
We do Color Week. Our students are still required to comply with the dress code, but we encourage color of the day. Monday: Green, Tuesday: Purple, Wednesday: Blue, Thursday: favorite color, Friday: White

– Can I bring my pets to the FUNd-Run: Color Edition?

No. This is a school-wide event, and not an appropriate place for your pooch, hamster, cockatiel or snake. There are many students with allergies.

– Are donations tax deductible?

Yes. The IRS website (www.irs.gov/publications/p526/ar02.html#en_US_2014_publink1000229831) states your canceled check serves as your record for donation. If you are donating more than $100 in cash, you may see the front office and they will provide you a tax deductible letter.
