Yes, I Want To Sponsor the 2017 Run With The Lions!
Dear Friends of Longwood Elementary,
The Longwood Elementary PTA is hosting our fourth Annual 5K Run/Walk on Saturday, April 29 at St. James Farm in Warrenville and we would love your support! As a Title I school, Longwood Elementary has a high percentage of economically disadvantaged students and our PTA is dedicated to raising the funds necessary to enable all students at Longwood the opportunity to have an enriched educational experience.
The 5K Run/Walk in the past years has been successful because of the many local businesses who partnered with us to provide financial support, food, services, and merchandise for the Silent Auction. Last year, nearly 500 participants, volunteers, and spectators were in attendance. Because of the generosity of over 50 local businesses, our PTA was able raise and provide the school with the funds needed to re-create the library and media center to include a Makerspace. The Makerspace, called the “Creation Station,” is an area that is set-up to encourage a student’s creativity and imagination through building, experimenting with technology, creating with various media, and engaging in hands-on activities with thought provoking challenges. Students are also participating in Genius Hour three times a week, where they are able to work on passion projects and use the materials and ideas generated in the Makerspace to help assist them. This year we will be raising funds to create an outdoor classroom in the courtyard area of the school complete with tables, landscaping, and seating to accommodate several classes at a time.
We invite you to take a few minutes to review the attached sponsorship packet and consider how you can be a part of such a lasting and life-changing event for the children and families of Longwood Elementary School. Also, consider coming to join us at St. James Farm on April 29, 2017 for our chip-timed run/walk. All racers receive a technical fabric T-shirt, a custom medal, and goodie bag. We will also be having a free 100-meter dash open to all children in Pre-Kindergarten through Fifth Grade and a Silent Auction filled with exciting items.
Our PTA would never be able to accomplish this event without the support of a caring community. Your generosity and commitment are invaluable to the children at Longwood Elementary. Please feel free to contact our Sponsorship Team for additional information or to answer any questions you may have.
Thank you for your consideration,
