2nd Annual KGA Check-a-thon!
The Check-a-thon has returned with a fun Star Wars theme! Last year’s Check-a-thon was KGA’s most successful fundraiser to date raising over $60,000 and we were able to have only one major fundraiser. Such success has turned the PTO to the “dark side” and we want even more this year! We need your help to reach our $75,000 goal and release KGA from the “ evil Darth PTO”! Check out this video to see Mrs. Weed in her acting debut: KGA Check-a-thon.
This year PTO is raising money for accessories for our new sound system, additional computers and technology, office furniture, and play equipment to go under the new shade structure purchased with your donations to last year’s Check-a-thon. The Check-a-thon also supports the PTO budget which funds the BooHoo Breakfast, Family Breakfast, Fall Festival, Science and Engineering Night, Arts Night, KGA Family Events, and Teacher appreciation week as well as supporting our students, teachers and staff throughout the year!
Students will earn one raffle ticket for each $50.00 in donations they receive! Raffle prizes include 2 lighted snap circuit sets, 2 drones and the grand prize of a Nintendo 3DS! In addition, the top earner in each homeroom (K-6) will win lunch with their teaching team. The top 3 earners in preschool will have an ice cream party with Ms. Weed. The top-earning grade receives a party with Ms. Weed!
