A message from the IH PTO
Hello MS Families!
We have exciting NEWS for you. As you may have heard, we are shaking things up a bit and launching a new, district-wide PTO fundraising campaign. The Indian Hill Exempted Village School District PTO is proud to announce the launch of BRAVE-A-THON, an annual PTO fundraising initiative to benefit the entire district!
What to Expect:
The Brave-A-Thon fundraiser will consist of two fundraising arms: 1) Corporate Sponsorships and 2) Student Pages.
We are using an online vendor 99 pledges for our campaign. Each school will be their own “team” and each student will have their own page.
Week of February 24th
We will introduce BRAVE A THON this week with an all school video compiled by the middle school students. Students will show their school spirit by wearing BRAVES gear on Friday.
Week of March 2nd
Each week will bring new surprises. We plan to keep the kids on their toes and generate as much school spirit as possible in the process.
Week of March 9th: The Final Week
The intensity of fun and excitement is going to build as we approach our event day.
March 12th: Brave-A-Thon (rain day March 13th)
This will be an all school 90 min event that will take place at the HS field. The students will be walking the track and participating in activities like sack racing, egg and spoon race, 3 legged race and more. This should be fun for all; it’s a great way for our students to socialize, exercise and interact with one another outside of the classroom!
WE NEED YOUR HELP TO MAKE THIS A SUCCESS.
The IH PTO works in partnership with the district to provide intra- and extra-curricular programs, events, equipment, etc. for all of our schools. The money raised will go directly to the students.
As a PTO we are not able to fulfill all of the requests we receive, this requires us to ask parents for more money, charge membership fees, and receive in kind donations. Many people do not know all that the PTO funds in addition to coordinating volunteer efforts and programming. Please see below some of what the PTO provides at the MS.
Support for student programs like Navigators and Ambassadors
Mindfulness/mental health in the Yeager space
Party in the Middle
Support at the following:
Orientation, Brave Up Day, conferences, and 8th grade graduation
Student game tables in the cafeteria
Welcome back luncheon
Bus driver appreciation
Just think of the wonderful things we can partner with the school on with your support!
