Love of Spelling

FEBRUARY 14, 2017

Fairlands PTA will hold our second Spell-A-Thon!

This is a fundraiser where 100% of the money raised benefits Fairlands Elementary School. Your child will improve his/her spelling skills, and our school raises critical funds to install a Projector in the Multipurpose Room. This projector is beneficial for all students. As you know every grade has a performance in the MPR every year. This will allow everyone to enjoy their performance regardless of where you are seated. It will also allow Mrs. Galletti to hold flag salutes in MPR on rainy days.


You can send in amount your student raised either by check (payable to Fairlands PTA), or by credit card online using Future Fund.



· The list of spelling words for your child's grade can be found below along with a sponsor sheet.

· Each grade has a different list of words. TK-Trace Letters; Kinder-Writes letters, 1-3rd grades spelling list of 25 words with 2 bonus words, and 4-5 grades list of 50 words plus 2 bonus words.

· Your child(ren) collect pledges from family and friends for every word spelled correctly or a flat donation can be made (cash and check).

· Your child should study the spelling words prior to the Spell-A-Thon. Each child will participate in the Spell-A-Thon TK-5 on February 14, 2017.

· Please bring the sponsor sheet to school by Friday, February 10.

· On February 17, spelling tests with attached receipts for monies owed will be returned to your child. Please make checks payable to Fairlands PTA.

As a parent, the most important thing you can do to support this effort is encourage your child to participate and get sponsors! If 60% of the students collect pledges, Mrs. Galletti has approved a school wide popsicles at lunch. If 75% of the students collect pledges, and we meet our goal of raising $25,000 there will be a school wide movie, popcorn, and dress like a movie star day in the MPR near the end of the school year. If your child raises $10, they have a one in ten chances to win a Regal movie ticket. If he/she raises $25 they have a one in three chance to receive a $25 Amazon gift card. Any student that collects $100.00 or more is placed in a drawing for a Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Film Camera (2), Fire Kindle (2) or and iPad Mini (1). Winners will be announced February 24 during Flag Salute. Prizes can be collected after school in the front office
