Attention 5th Grade Parents (and anyone else who wants to help!)
Our 5th graders work very hard each day to earn "Buckeye Points" through things like good behavior, turning in homework, and outstanding citizenship. Students who earn 90% of the possible Buckeye Points each semester are rewarded with a "Buckeye Bash", a celebration of their achievement. This is a highly effective program, and is very meaningful for our 5th graders.
The 2nd quarter Buckeye Bash is a trip to Star Lanes (bowling). The cost is about $20/child - a total of $2800 for the entire 5th grade. It is very important that we collect the funds required to allow our students to successfully attain the reward they are working so hard for.
We are asking that all 5th grade parents who are able contribute to the Buckeye Bash. Minimum suggested donation is $20. However, larger donations are accepted since we know there will be many students whose families cannot afford the cost. We want to reward all students for their hard work!
To make a personal donation, follow the steps below. In addition to personal donations, we are also appreciative for any businesses who want to sponsor this activity. Anyone who wishes to make a donation via cash or check may send the money to school by Friday. Checks can be made out to the Fouse PTO.
To make an online donation:
Thank you for helping our 5th graders reach this goal!
