Help Build Our Playground!
Wes Hosford School is having a Math-A-Thon! The Math-A-Thon is a fundraiser that allows all students in grades K-6 the opportunity to ‘show off’ their math skills while earning pledges for their school at the same time. On Thursday, March 14 students will participate in Mathletics events where they will complete a variety of math stations appropriate for their grade level. Math-A-Thon proceeds will be used to support fundraising for the new playground.
Pledges of $25.00 or more qualify for a tax receipt from Elk Island Public Schools. If you prefer to donate this way, please ensure that you provide the name of the donor along with a mailing address, so receipts can be mailed out when they are prepared.
Again, all pledges and donations are voluntary, but greatly appreciated! Pledges will be accepted until March 13.
