HISTORY: For many years, SFES held a “Track Attack” as the school’s main fundraiser with a fun opportunity for students to run as many laps as possible after getting pledged donations per lap. In 2016, the PTO launched a new fundraiser called “Make It Happen for Education” that was designed to be the only fundraiser for the school year. While this was wildly successful, we wanted to make sure to carry on the long tradition of the Track Attack event while also teaching our students the importance of giving back to our wonderfully supportive community…. thus the Track Attack Gives Back event was born!
In its inaugural year, our school collected and donated over 4,000 food items to the Hopewell Food Pantry that helped 275+ families in our community! This year, it has evolved to be more than just a single event - we are making it an entire WEEK OF GIVING with fun ways to remember each day what giving is all about! The Week of Giving ends with our Track Attack event where our students will “Go for the Gold” and run laps to earn gold stripes. This is always a fun and competitive event.
