Friday, May 19th from 9 - 10 am
Dear Lewis & Clark Montessori Families,
Join us for a special fundraiser that actively engages our entire student body and affirms healthy habits for our students and our school. Generosity, team spirit, and caring for yourself and others are part and parcel of your child’s experience at Lewis & Clark Montessori.
Spring In Our Step is a natural extension of these values. It is an exciting outdoor community event held on the morning of Friday, May 19th. The funds we raise are vital to keeping our school healthy, and you are the key to helping us meet our goals.
Collectively, our goal is to run over 1,000 miles and raise over $11,000.
Individually, each child will set goals for how many laps they'll run and how much money they'll raise. A special student-designed Spring In Our Step t-shirt will be awarded to students who raise $100 or more.
If each child secures 10 sponsors at $10 per sponsor, we will raise over $30,000 for our school.
The fundraising side of Spring In Our Step relies on students reaching out to their extended community. Let’s throw the net wide. Encourage people, other than you, to support your child and our school. Help your child contact aunts, uncles, neighbors, family friends, cousins, businesses and your co-workers to gather pledges. New this year: collect pledges online at https://pledgestar.com/lcmcs. This hourlong run on a spring morning has the potential to touch a lot of lives, and mean great things for our future.
David Paulus, parent of three boys at Lewis & Clark Montessori, is going to head up the planning and organizing of this event AGAIN! Thank you, David! If you would like to volunteer to help out as well, get in touch with Mishawn or me.
Come on out on Friday, May 19th and cheer on your child(ren). Or run (or walk!) with us. Parents, siblings, grandparents and friends are welcome to participate. We hope every student and their families connect with our community by actively participating in Spring In Our Step.

|NEW! Fundraising System - TRY IT OUT!
New for Spring In Our Step 2017, we're using an awesome web based fundraising system that makes it much easier for you to request pledges from your family and friends, and for them to make secure credit card donations online. It's fun, it's easy, and people who use it typically raise twice as much as those who don't!
Remember, Spring In Our Step 2017 is May 19, so please register now to help our school raise as much as we can for Student Electives, Classroom Materials, Education and Training for our staff, and Student Special Services.
When you finish, the system emails pledge requests to your family and friends, and allows them to make secure credit card donations online. You get notified each time a pledge is made, and you can track your pledge progress online.
Call Pledgestar at 1-888-598-7510 if you need help.
