The Oak Point Glow Run fundraising program, powered by Boosterthon, will happen between October 31, 2017 and November 9, 2017. Boosterthon's fundraising program is a 10-day program that starts with a Pep Rally (October 31) and ends with the big Glow Run event (November 9.) This year, we’re raising funds to purchase new playground equipment and for classroom field trips. Boosterthon is a major fundraiser for Oak Point. Participation in the fundraising portion of Boosterthon is voluntary. All students will participate in the Oak Point Glow Run and will receive a free t-shirt as part of the program. To further understand how the Boosterthon fundraising program works at Oak Point, please take a look at this explanatory flyer.
Students will learn character lessons throughout the fundraising program. This year’s character theme is Castle Quest. It's an English castle theme about being brave and living with character. On their quest to regain Bravemore Castle, students will learn the Six Virtues of a True Hero from a cast of colorful characters.
Also this year, our school has the opportunity to work together and help a local school in need. This school year, through Project Classroom, Boosterthon is donating $75,000 to help American classrooms with the greatest needs. Every time an Oak Point classroom reaches $30 per lap, Boosterthon will donate one dollar to fund classroom projects through their giveback program.
At the Oak Point Glow Run on November 9, students will complete 30-35 laps around the Glow Run track inside the gym while helping raise funds for our school. Please consider supporting us in our fundraising efforts by asking friends and family to pledge your child.
