2nd Annual Aquarian-A-Thon Set for Thursday, October 15

It's time for the 2nd Annual Aquarian-a-Thon. This is Aquarian's ONLY big fundraiser for the year. No more selling wrapping paper, candy and other tchotchkes that nobody really wants. Instead, students will spend one hour outside (30 minutes for kindergarten and 1st graders) participating in the activity of their choice - running, dancing, or playing basketball/four square. 

Here’s how it works:

Students collect pledges in the form of either a single flat pledge or a specific dollar amount per each lap run, or every 5 minutes spent dancing or playing basketball/four square. Once the event is over, students have until October 30 to collect and turn in their pledges. 

All money raised from the Aquarian-a-Thon will support the Aquarian
PTO for classroom field trips, playground equipment
upgrades, ice rink maintenance, Artist-In-Residence (particularly a potter this year), and explorations with an emphasis on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). All money raised by 4th, 5th and 6th graders will go toward camps.

Here's the part the kids are most interested in - PRIZES!
  • $50 in pledges - Name entered into a drawing for an H2Oasis Adventure! (admission and pizza)
  • $75 in pledges - Name entered into H2Oasis drawing and $5 to spend at the school store!
  • $100 in pledges - Name entered into the H2Oasis drawing, $5 to spend at the school store, and an Aquarian-A-Thon T-shirt!
  • $100+ in pledges - All of the above, plus additional prizes for the top 10 money makers.
(All prizes will be awarded December 16).

The Top Student Fundraiser will be named “Principal for the Day” (cancelling school not allowed!).

In addition, there will be a class contest. 

The top primary (K-2) and intermediate (3-6) classes that collectively raise the most money will win a pizza party for their class.  

Flyers and pledge envelopes were sent home with all students on Wednesday, October 7. If one didn't make it home with your child, check with Annie or Hope in the office.
