Alamo’s annual Spell-a-thon will take place on the third Thursday of January Thursday, January 23, 2020. This is a fun and educational fundraiser that raised over $30,000 for Alamo last year! Your child learns to spell 25 words (Kindergarten to 3rd grade) or 40/50 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 14, 2020. Checks should be payable to “Alamo PTA” and returned to your teacher.
Online donations for Spellathon can be made through our online portal at ParenSquare. Log into your account or just click here, enter the parent email address and select the child for whom you are making a donation. Questions? Trouble signing in? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
Classes with 100% participation will get to attend a special assembly! 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 the day of the test anytime between 10 am and 12 pm.
Thanks for supporting Alamo!
