Monday's Riddle started us thinking about fundraising, and Marcus reviewed the amazing new middle grade book Nate Rocks the School by Karen Pokras Toz. Stop by Friday for an interview with Nate! Saturday, we look forward to hearing from you on The DMS Wants to Know. Today, we want to take a moment to spotlight two excellent fundraising ideas!
This week's top of the heap: Out of this world fund raising ideas!
Fairday: Pancake Breakfast! My school did this and I thought it was amazing. The breakfast was a chance to get the family, school, and community together for a meal! It was not only a great way to make money, but it was also a chance for everyone to take a little time to talk and fit in the most important meal of the day. Pancakes don’t cost a lot to make, and people volunteered to serve food or cook. At my school the kids helped to serve, and then had a chance to sit down with their family and friends. Of course, my dad made his famous blueberry pancakes and everyone got to start their day off with his fabulous cooking! In the busy world we live in it is important to take time to enjoy the company of friends and family. What better way than to raise money and spirits at the same time! ~F
Lizzie: Game Night! I love to play board games and see if I am up for the challenge. We had a game night for families at our school and we raised a ton of money. It was so much fun to walk into the gym and see games set up all over the place. I played a few different games and beat the pants off my brother, Mark, at checkers. It was awesome! The laughter could be heard down the hall, as families talked and played together. I hope we have another one this year to raise money! ~L
