2019 HOP-A-THON!  

            Our 2019 Hop-A-Thon which will be held the week of May 6th. 2018 Hop-a-thon Ballots will be sent home via email with on March 25th. Please choose three charities and return the ballot via email or in paper form by April 12th.
            How it works: Each child tries to hop as many times as possible in two minutes during the week of May 6th. We ask you to obtain pledges for each hop performed by your child. BEWARE, some older children can hop over 200 times in two minutes! Warn people that $.01 to $.05 /hop are generous pledges. If a child's hops exceed the amount that a person wishes to donate, assure the donor that any pledge is acceptable and appreciated. We will send home a paper listing the number of hops performed by your child . The family that raises the most money will receive a $100.00 gift certificate for Dolly’s preschool or summer camp. Thank you for your participation and support! We will hand out checks at our graduation ceremony on June 8th. 100% of monies raised go to the 3 selected charities. Fundraising forms with be attached to your May Newsletter.
