FOUR DAYS LEFT TO MEET YOUR $500 FUNDRAISING GOAL!
Bethany Loves Bloomington is this Friday, October 14th and we’re asking each Bethany Academy family to raise $500 to meet our goal of $50,000. If each family raises $328, we’ll meet our school goal! Some families have chosen to write a check to the school for the full amount while others are fundraising through social media or going door-to-door. Remember that donations are tax-deductible! Here’s the video to share and post: https://vimeo.com/185370120 . Here’s the link to the donation page: http://www.bethanyacademy.org/bethanylovesminnesota.cfm.
We are very grateful to our corporate sponsors who have donated over $8000! Thank you! Additionally, we’re hearing great feedback as students and families are fundraising:
- “We raised $169 in 1 ½ hours going through our neighborhood,” mom of three children.
- “I tell my friends about the meal packing and they love giving to this event!” mom of two.
- “I’m glad my son can help fundraise in this way!” dad of two.
Grand Prize: The student who raises the most money among K-12th grade will have 1 chance to score a half-court basketball shot. A successful shot wins FULL TUITION for the 2017-2018 school year! * The grand prize shot will take place at the conclusion of the meal packing event between 2:30 – 2:55 pm.
Class Prizes: Each class has the opportunity to win a class party based on the percent-of-class-goal raised. 100% of goal wins a party valued at $100; 50% of goal wins $50; 33% of goal wins $33. (More details in 10/07/2016 BAWU).
Individual Prize: 13 prizes available, one per class. Students who raise the family goal of $500 or more qualify to win the individual prize. The qualifying student in each class who raises the most in his/her class wins a $50 gift card.
Don’t Miss the Pig Races! The qualifying student who raises the most money in each class earns a chance to compete in the mechanical pig races at the conclusion of the event between 2:15 – 2:45 pm. The winner scores a $25 gift card!
*FULL TUITION prize will be a tuition discount applied to the student’s 2017-2018 tuition. The prize awarded will not exceed the student’s tuition rate and will be deducted from the 2017-2018 student bill. Any remaining fees or charges will be the responsibility of the family in accordance with regular tuition and fee payment. Complete rules and regulations will be provided to the winner.
All Grades – Parent Teacher Conferences Friday, October 28
It’s that time of year already – It’s easy to sign up on line.
If you have a secondary student, it is important to know his/her schedule and what teachers you want to see before opening the link.
If you are ready to sign up now, you may click on the link here –
Tips when scheduling conferences for more than one child: 1. If in different grades, try to schedule them back to back. 2. If your students are at the secondary level, in different grades, but have the same teacher, schedule two time slots together with that teacher to cover both students in one session.
If you have any questions, please contact Nancy Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 952-831-8686 ext 110.
