THE SEVENTH ANNUAL PANTHER PENTATHLON WILL BE HELD ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 6TH.
This is a major fundraiser for Jacoby Creek School that features a student-driven pledge drive culminating with a celebration event with a range of fun, athletic, musical, and creative activities at school.
All proceeds from the Pentathlon will, once again, help fund core programs that would have to be greatly reduced or eliminated due to state budget cuts were it not for the fundraising, including Drama, Music, Foreign Language, Athletics, and Technology education
The Pentathlon is an opportunity for parents, grandparents, neighbors, friends, and co-workers to support our students' education. The goal is to raise $55,000. If each student brings in $150 in pledges, we will meet our goal! Students have the opportunity to receive a prize for participation at whatever level of money they raise. Ice cream parties will be provided for the classrooms that raise the largest amount!
Payment is due from each sponsor at the time of sign-up as we will not be sending invoices. Although cash is accepted, a check is more secure.
Once your child has finished their collections, they may return their completed packets to their teacher anytime during our collection period, beginning Monday September 18th with the deadline of Tuesday, October 3rd for online donations and Wednesday October 4th for cash/check donations
The need is great and ongoing, but this generous community has shown in the past its commitment to the highest standards of quality programs for our children. We hope that, once again, the entire school and our supporters will come together to make this year's Panther Pentathlon a 5-Star success to help maintain Jacoby Creek's tradition of educational excellence.
