Use your BRAIN and BODY to raise money for West!


North Polk West Elementary PTA is kicking off our Fall Fitness FUNdraiser! This event, involving all grades TK-4, will allow our students to raise much-needed funds WITHOUT SELLING MERCHANDISE.

Students will solicit donations from family and friends and then, on the last week, participate in an obstacle course, book walk, and other FUN stations to fuel their brains and bodies! It will be a great way to boost school spirit, promote fitness, encourage reading, and win fun prizes! The best part is that 100% of the money donated will go directly to West!

Each student is being asked to raise at least $35 toward our total FUNdraiser goal of $16,000. Please understand that this is a suggested goal per student, and by no means is it a requirement. No gifts are too small (or too large!).

Why are we raising money? Where will the money go?

As you know, we make our school even better by providing students and teachers with unfunded essentials that aren’t covered by the school’s budget.

These essentials include continued support and additional funds for:

  • Further advances in technology
  • Books to supplement the new reading curriculum
  • School improvement needs
  • Field trips and teacher support, recognition, and reimbursement
  • Recess equipment, library books, high school scholarships, family events, and MUCH MORE!

How do I ask for or collect donations?
