Alamo’s annual Spell-a-thon will take place on Thursday, January 26, 2017. This is a fun and educational fundraiser that raised over $32,000 for Alamo last year! Your child learns to spell 25 words (Kindergarten to 3rd grade) or 50 words (4th and 5th grade), while your family and friends can reward his/her effort with a tax-deductible donation to Alamo School. Donations raised are used to pay for grade-wide field trips, teacher classroom allocations, assemblies, copier expenses, school beautification projects, family nights, Grandparents Day, and much more.
Prior to the test, get pledges from friends and family. After the spelling test, your child’s test will be graded and returned to you with the number of words spelled correctly. Please collect the pledge money or checks from your child’s sponsors by Friday, February 10, 2017. Checks should be payable to “Alamo PTA” and returned to your teacher.
NEW! Online donations for Spellathon can be made through our new online store. Just use click here, enter your email address and select the child for whom you are making a donation. This link can be given to friends and family! Questions? Trouble signing in? Contact Christine Ko at firstname.lastname@example.org
Classes with 100% participation will get to attend the Amazing Bubble Man Show on February 22! The top two earners from each grade will receive their choice of Alamo gear or movie tickets.
Please contact your child’s teacher if you can help correct the Spell-a-thon tests on Thursday, January 26, 2017 anytime between 11:30 am and 1 pm.
Thanks for supporting Alamo!
