Friday, February 15, 2019

Hoop-A-Thon is a student-driven annual fundraiser that encourages teamwork, healthy living, and most of all, school spirit.

On Friday, February 15, 2019, students will showcase their athletic skills, self-confidence, and school spirit by dribbling, running, and shooting baskets in the Turning Point gymnasium.

Family and friends encourage their efforts with pledges, which support Turning Point's athletics department and garden/Dirt-to-Dish programs. In addition, we will once again raise funds to enhance and improve the student experience at Weemes Elementary School, including our mentoring program, where Grade 8 students travel to Weemes to tutor and mentor younger elementary students.

Make a pledge

  • Support a Student by making a pledge in his or her honor. Spread the word to your family and friends by sharing this page via social media or email; anyone can support a student! (Suggested amount $50)
  • Sponsor a Teacher T-Shirt: Help us provide t-shirts to our teachers and staff on the day of the event. ($20 per shirt)
  • Enter the Parent Shoot-Out (parents will be able to shoot after their child's class). The top male and female scorers will have their names etched onto our championship trophy! ($20 to participate)
  • Honor Dr. Konigsberg as she shoots for the stars in the Head of School Challenge! ($25)

Purchase Raffle Tickets for a VIP Lakers Experience

One lucky winner will get four front row center seats in Row 1, Section 101 (seats 1-4) of the Lakers vs. Nets game at the Staples Center, on 3/22/2019 at 7:30 pm! VIP parking is also included.

Raffle tickets are $100 each and only 150 total will be sold. All proceeds benefit Turning Point School (a special thank you to the Oseary family for donating the tickets).

Limit 5 raffle tickets per family. Winner does not need to be present at the Hoop-A-Thon to claim prize.


Parents are welcome to join us in the gym to cheer on their children as they show off their skills and self-confidence. Students can be nervous dribbling, running, and shooting in front of a crowd, and it means the world to them to receive encouragement and see smiling, familiar faces in the stands. Parents of students in Levels K-8 are also invited to join their children for lunch. In-N-Out orders for parents will be available on the day of the event for $12.00.

Show off your skills in our Pop-A-Shot challenge ($5 per game). If you're quick and accurate, you could have your name etched onto our Pop-A-Shot Trophy! Purchase Pop-A-Shot tickets the day of the event.

There will be an opportunity to purchase a raffle ticket to win a fabulous VIP experience with a beloved LA sports team! Keep an eye out for details coming in early February.
