WOW! That is a number we dreamed of!! During the month of February, the Kindergarten through Eighth grade students at Literacy First Charter School sent ‘pledge requests’ via text and email out to their family, friends and local businesses. The students requested donations for field trips, and in return celebrated the giving by showing grit and perseverance during a 20 minute jog. The day of the jog was a party with all of the trimmings: DJs, balloons, Captain America, Pat the Bulldog, tutus, capes, facepaint, and too many festive touches to count. It was also a HUGE moment to capture because it was the first day that parents were able to rejoin us on campus. We can’t think of a better coming together of our LFCS community than what took place on this day. During the course of the month, students were competing as classes, grade levels and individuals for prizes and incentives. Laughter and squeals were heard across the campuses as students slid down giant 27’ inflatable slides, and competed in over the top sports challenges. The top three classes at the halfway point earned awesome ice cream sundae parties, and the three highest earning classes at the end of the fundraiser combined their winnings for a MEGA pizza party! We can’t thank our families and teachers and staff enough for making this event such a huge success.
