On Your Mark, Get Set, Go!

Greenwood’s Annual Move and Groove A Thon, Friday 10/28/22

We’re so excited to gather as a community and move and groove together on Friday, 10/28. Kids will come outside during the day to challenge themselves to move for 20 minutes straight. Kids will have the choice to jog, hula hoop, jump rope, or dance – but the challenge is just to keep moving together! Families and friends can support their students by fundraising for the Greenwood PTA.

We’re aiming to raise $40,000 as a community. We use these funds to pay for PTA programming- things like Global Reading Challenge, buying additional texts for the library, providing each teacher with a stipend for classroom supplies, assemblies, enrichment opportunities (like drama and musical theater, instrumental music, dance), for recess supervision and in school tutors and for supporting all of our families through our Family Care Coordinator program.

We’re so thankful for all the families who have supported this work already! We’re eager to have everyone contribute. Below are a few ways you can support:

1) Write an encouragement note to your Greenwood Star. Send it into the main office and we’ll hang it up in the hallway for them to see.

2) Encourage your kid to train. Turn on some music, jog around the block, practice jump roping- get ready to move as a whole community the whole time.

3) Sign up to volunteer and support during the day.

4) Come and cheer! Not sure if you can commit for a whole time block? Just stop by, bring some pom poms or a cow bell and cheer on kids to keep moving.

5) Fundraise! This is one of our main PTA fundraisers for the year. We use these funds to support our arts programming, recess supervisors, tutors, our family care coordinator and so much more. Set up your fundraising page on Membership Toolkit or use the packet to collect in person. Encourage your Greenwood Star to share what they love most about our school and community.
