Spring- A-Thon Mar. 22 – Mar 29, 2024
Sebastopol Charter students will be bringing home their Spring-A-Thon packets during the week leading up to the March 22 start date.
This event is structured like a virtual jog or read-a-thon. Every student will have a private page online that can be shared with family and friends to generate sponsors to contribute funds towards the activity that they have selected to do. Each child can choose an activity of their choice, join with a group of friends, and/or the class can choose to do an activity together.
Example activities: Bike riding, painting, rock climbing, Beach Cleanup Day.
Feedback and tips from fellow parents is that encouraging activities that are already a part of your child’s life can lessen the impact of having to make extra time for something new. If gymnastics is something your child loves and already does throughout the week, your family and friends who might be sponsors would probably love to see and celebrate a few highlights of that and you aren’t re-writing your schedule to make it happen.
Other parents have shared that they might have interest in coming up with a Class Service Project so that they can connect over the week and share in the activity together.
The top three “Springers” will receive a prize.
The top “Springing Class” will receive a popcorn party from the Charter Foundation!
