Congratulations to our Hutchinson Community! Our amazing kids finished the fun run and we are all so proud of their accomplishments!

Ask your kids what their favorite part of the day was! Was it the music, balloons, bubbles, Elmo, Principal Hoffman or the teachers running with them? Whatever they say, wow, what a day! As of Friday the school PTO has raised a little less than $19,500 and we have until Friday October 11th to turn in cash and checks, and through October 18th for online donations.

Your child’s Friday folder has an important hand-out and envelope to help us reach the finish line. In order to earn some of our cool prizes, it’ll be important to follow the instructions included. Please note that ALL students will come home with a prize whether funds were raised or not. But for those who did raise some dollars, for every $50 your kiddo raises, your kiddo will receive a raffle ticket to enter into our prize assembly drawing November 1st. Some of the cool prizes we’ve collected include:

  • An autographed Tim Howard Rapids goalie jersey
  • An autographed Nathan McKinnon Avalanche NHL hockey stick
  • An autographed Nikola Jokic Nuggets basketball
  • A $495 gift certificate good for one family photo from Janssen Photography
  • Movie Tickets
  • Museum passes
  • Zoo passes
  • Escape Factory passes
  • Lakewood Symphony passes
  • Squishmallows
  • And many more…

Children who raise $300 will get to play in our Video Game Truck on Friday, November 8th. Raise $500 or more and you get to bring a friend!

The final day to turn in ‘in-school’ donations is Friday, October 11th. That’s why we sent home the envelope. Online donations are accepted until October the 18th through our GetMovin’ Fund Hub portal.

A BIG thank you to all the parents, teachers who put in the many hours to make our Friday run a success! And an even BIGGER THANK YOU to the parents who came out and cheered and who have been helping your children learn the importance of community by joining in on the fundraising efforts, healthy habits and physical activity!

Last, but not least, thank you to our corporate sponsors: Small Characters Learning Center and Aqua-Tots Swim Schools! We couldn’t have had such a special event without you!
