Have you heard of the BOBCAT DASH!?!
Lakeview Elementary has ONE major fundraiser each year...the BOBCAT DASH! With 100% of the $$$ raised going back to the school, we thought that it is important to give you a little more information on this amazing annual event!
WHAT IS THE BOBCAT DASH?
The Bobcat Dash is Lakeview’s only major fundraiser for the school year. Last year, we raised almost $70,000 for our school and we are confident that, with everyone’s help and cooperation we can meet or exceed our $65,000 goal for this year!!! There are three important components to the Dash:
- We kick off the Bobcat Dash fundraiser with a Pep Rally at the beginning of October and the students start raising money for Lakeview.
- The students have several weeks to raise money and then turn in donations during
the week of the Bobcat Dash race. (November 5-9, 2018). This week is focused on character building through out super hero theme and school spirit. As students raise money, they are rewarded with prizes for their hard work!
- The ultimate prize is at the end of the week when all of the students come together and run in the Bobcat Dash race! Each grade level will participate in a fun and challenging obstacle course on Friday, November 9th to celebrate their fundraising success, with each other and our Lakeview community. Super heroes will join the kids and it will be amazing! You will want to come and cheer on your super hero as he/she runs through the course!
WHY ARE WE DOING THE BOBCAT DASH?
To raise money for Lakeview Elementary! With each new school year, Lakeview has new needs ranging from technology to playground equipment. Every donation, large and small, helps bring the needed items to our school. Our children are our future, which is why we are reminding them that they are Dedicated Amazing Super Heroes that can achieve anything!
WHO PARTICIPATES IN THE BOBCAT DASH?
All Lakeview students!! Students from Pre-K through 5th grade will participate in the Bobcat Dash. The "super" news is that we are all in this together! It takes our entire community for the Bobcat Dash to be successful – through fundraising, sponsorships, donations, volunteer opportunities, and "super" fans cheering on our amazing students during the Bobcat Dash race!
HOW DO STUDENTS RAISE MONEY FOR THE BOBCAT DASH?
So many ways!!! We encourage every student to ask family, friends, neighbors, community members and anyone else that will listen to support their amazing school! Students will turn in donations received during the official Bobcat Dash week (November 5 - 9, 2018) and will earn some amazing prizes along the way for various levels of fundraising.
