We are excited to kick off the sixth annual MAKE IT HAPPEN direct giving fundraising campaign. The two best parts? No selling involved and our school keeps 100% of all funds raised! 2021 was a tremendous success. With your help and generosity, we raised over $74,000 that went directly to replacing the flooring in the Gaga Pits, widening and resurfacing of our track and resurfacing of the basketball courts!
How does it work? Simply put, the more money your student raises, the more prizes they qualify for - from a homework pass or Spirit Stick all the way up to our NEW prize, Park, Pizza & Popsicles at the newly opened Mountain Creek Park right here in Sherrills Ford! We also offer raffles that students have a chance to win based on their fundraising level and date their monies are submitted. Raffle prizes include an all-day boat rental donated by Lake Effects Boat Club, a Frankie's Gift Card, Great Wolf Lodge Gift Card, four season passes to Carowinds, and even a $500 VISA gift card.
What is the money for? Once again, 100% of the funds will go directly to impact our school. IF we reach our $80,000 goal, additional window safety film will be placed on lower windows throughout the building, begin replacing outdated furniture in classrooms and continue to update our outdoor space by painting the basketball courts and replacing the soccer goals. These updates will benefit every single student this school year. Safety is a top priority at SFES, the students need a comfortable learning environment and we all know students perform better in and out of the classroom when recess is a part of their day, so let’s finish up their outdoor space on basketball courts and soccer fields!
