Boosterthon Fundraiser


Parents, thank you for helping our students gather pledges for our big Boosterthon fundraiser!  Our goal is to earn $25,000 to go towards our Montevideo Education Foundation (MEF).  MEF dollars are crucial to keep all of our programs that make our school such a wonderful and dynamic place of learning.  Go to to add pledges from friends and family or bring cash and checks into the school office labeled with your child’s name and teacher.   Along with keeping our quality programs, students will be earning individual, class, and grade level prizes along the way!

Your children will be proud and excited to have you come cheer for them on Friday, January 18th!  Keep an eye out for the schedule of when your child(ren) will be running, dancing, and skipping their way around the course.
