Warm-Up Wednesday & Fun Run News!

Updated February 13, 2018

FUNDRAISING NEWS – latest news in purple

Each week, don't forget to check out the Classroom Leaderboard and our awesome Student Incentives to get motivated!


2/13 The good news is that we have raised nearly $25,000 and that a little over 60% of our students have registered, which is fabulous.   We now need to focus our efforts on bringing in some donations.  We encourage you to post the FUN RUN link on Facebook.   Those who have, have had really great success with getting donations

2/9 $20,000 is going to happen before the end of the day on Friday - guaranteed!   This means on Tuesday, February 13, all staff members will be celebrating this milestone goal by wearing a wig or coming in with crazy hair.  

Give a big Husky pat on the back to all the students who have participated up to this point.  For all the rest, jump on board with our winning team!!!   

2/7 We celebrated this first milestone, with Dr. Fine riding a scooter around the campus for the day.  Thank you Dr. Fine!


Any grade level (6th, 7th or 8th) that reaches $3,000 will have a chance to play in a student vs. teacher kickball game at lunch (students who have at least 1 donation will be on the team).

Any grade level (6th, 7th or 8th) that reaches $5,000 will get to have a dunk tank at school and have the chance to submerge their MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHERS!!  For each $50 a student raises, he or she will receive 1 ball, up to a maximum of 3 balls

TOP DOG AWARD:  New this year!

The Top Dog Award goes to the K-5 classroom and the middle school classroom that is in the lead for fundraising on a specific day.   That class receives the Top Dog Husky to keep in their classroom until another class takes over the lead.  

2/13    K-5 Top Dog Class:   Team Maisterra, followed closely by Team Delijani

6-8 Top Dog Class:   Team Park, followed by Team Ickes

2/9 Team Maisterra for K-5 and Team Park for middle school.  Team Maisterra and Team Delijani  POPSICLE PARTY for 100% registration!!!

2/7 Team Maisterra has run away with the lead, and as of this morning, her class has raised $1900.  Her class keeps Top Dog status for the day, but there are several other classes that are trailing close behind and with a little nudge, could overtake Team Maisterra before the weekend.

And hooray for Team Park!  Team Park continues to be in the lead for middle school...but don't get too confident because we are seeing A LOT of middle school students registering and starting to bring in donations.  Thank you middle school teachers for talking this up....we have already doubled our middle school participation over 2017.

2/6: Team Park is in the lead for the entire school, having raised $1050 to date.  Congratulations to Team Maisterra!  They have raised $1040 and are the K-5 Top Dogs for the day, followed very closely by Team Delijani ($1030) and Team German ($1015).

2/1:  K-5  Mrs. German and Mrs. Varela Tied    Middle School:  Mrs. Park (Grade 7)

2/1:  K-5 Ms. Arth                                             Middle School:  Mrs. Park (grade 7).


When a student raises $300 or more, they automatically become a fundraising superstar.  This qualifies the student for a barbeque with the principal and enters them into a raffle for great prizes (including Echo Dot, Echo, AMC movie tickets, tickets to the Aquarium of the Pacific, tickets to the Natural History Museum, and more)
