How it works: Each child receives a letter of instruction, a list of spelling words, and a pledge sheet. Each child will get sponsors who pledge a given amount per word spelled correctly or a flat pledge for the student’s participation. After the test is given and corrected, the pledge sheets will be tabulated and returned to students. The students will then collect their pledges and return the money to their teacher or the front office. This is a great opportunity to have friends, family, and neighbors champion your students in academics while also raising money for our school. Our $12,000 goal averages to $25 a student, although, many students raise much more. We encourage EVERY student to participate.
