BENEFITING: ST CROIX PREPARATORY ACADEMY
EVENT: St. Croix Prep Marathon 2016
EVENT DATE: Oct 19, 2016
Current Total: $2,868
The St. Croix Prep Marathon is our largest fundraiser in which all student and staff participate in raising funds.
Marathon Day is not only a great day filled with outdoor activity and community building, we also use this event to close the funding gap between our school and other Stillwater public schools. St. Croix Prep does not receive any of the local tax levy funds that the local district receives. This ‘gap’ amounts to over $1.5 million per year. We must work together to close this funding gap for our students.
Our goal for the Marathon is $100,000! The money raised supports academic enrichment for SCPA students. As in past years, the funds raised will purchase classroom technology. In addition, this year’s funds will be used to subsidize the cost of educational field trips and assemblies for every student.
Each student has a goal of raising a minimum of $65 to reach his/her first incentive. Students raising more than $65 will be eligible for additional prizes. See ‘Incentives and Celebrations’ section for more details.
To assist families in reaching out to friends and family around the country and the world, as well as those who live nearby, students will collect donations online through our event website. Each student will have an individual web page that he/she can forward to family and friends. See ‘How to Donate’ section for more details.
Let’s work together to enrich our students’ classroom experience so that St. Croix Prep remains a place where our students develop their academic, character and leadership potential.
