walkWHEN:

PLEASE SEE IMPORTANT DAY OF DETAILS HERE.

WHERE:
Stillwater Playground/Track

WHO:
All Stillwater Hawks

WHAT:
The Hawk Walk is a 100% Donation Based Fundraiser! All profits go directly to the PTSA to benefit our students and school.

GOAL:
The suggested minimum fundraising goal per student is $35. The school goal is $12,000! We can do it! We made over $17,000 last year during the Hawk Walk! View Classroom Goals.

Prizes!!!!

  1. Every classroom has been assigned a class goal based off of the number of kids in each class. Please click here to see your student(s) classroom goal. Every class that reaches their goal will earn a Ice Cream Party! Special consideration will be made for those all-star students that go above and beyond but the class does not reach the goal.
  2. The top two earners in each grade will be invited to a Breakfast with the Principal event. Mr. Madigan will serve each student a tasty breakfast. Yum!
  3. The top 2 earners in each grade AND 6 Wild Card Winners (1 in each grade, randomly selected from a pool of students who fundraise more than $35) will earn a spot to compete in a fun relay at the spirit assembly on April 4th!!! Grades K & 1 will be hopping on a giant ball, grades 2 and 3 will be walking in flippers and grades 4 and 5 will be moving on floor carts with plungers (brand new plungers). Each team member will be retrieving puzzle pieces that the 5th grade student on their team will assemble to form a quote. Once a team has completed their puzzle, they will come together to pass a banana down a line using their feet!!!

    If a top earner or wild card winner does not want to compete in the relay, they can choose a friend to do it for them.
  4. Every student that raises $35 or more, which is the suggested minimum, will be entered into a drawing on April 3rd to win fun prizes, including an invitation to the Breakfast with the Principal event and a treat for you and a friend at lunch.
  5. 4th & 5th Graders, Mr. Madigan might be coming up with own extra incentive for you! Stay tuned!
  6. And last but certainly not least…if the school hits the $12,000 goal, Mr. Madigan and Mr. Hammons will be leading two teams in a game of Stillwater Mystery Box at the spirit assembly on April 4th!!! Every student that collects ANY amount of donations will be able to sign-up for a chance to win a spot on a team, permission slips will be posted to our website and Facebook group after March 27th if we hit our goal! Two winners will be announced on April 2nd – parents will then need to confirm their child’s participation (as long as the school achieves the $12,000 goal). Stillwater Mystery Box will be modeled after the game played on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon

Important Logistics:

  1. Fundraising envelopes (and online donations) can be turned in anytime between now and Wednesday, March 27th. Any donations received AFTER March 27th at 4pm will not be counted towards the prize totals.
  2. Envelopes will not be given back to the students once they are turned in, so make sure your donations are complete or you will have to send in any additional donations in a regular envelope marked with your child’s name, teacher and grade.
  3. Please check our Facebook page daily to see the progress of classroom goals and the overall school goal. We will start providing daily updates on March 21st.
  4. While corporate matching is an integral part of our fundraising strategy plan, because we do not receive the matching funds until well after the event is over, we do not count promised corporate matching funds towards the Hawk Walk. However, we do have a prize drawing in June for every corporate matching donation we received with a name attached during the current school year, the family associated to the winning corporate match will receive a $100 Visa gift card.

When your sponsors ask what the donations will be used for, you can use the information below to tell them about all the activities that the PTSA provides to Stillwater.
