Get Ready for Cassidy School Boosterthon

The Boosterthon Fun Run program is a healthy alternative to traditional product sales that raises much-needed funds for our school and over 1400 other schools across America this year. The nine-day program also promotes FITNESS, LEADERSHIP, and CHARACTER during the fun-filled experience. PLUS, EVERY STUDENT IS INCLUDED whether he or she participates financially or not.

This year’s character theme is ROCK’N TOWN LIVE, a music festival theme all about COMMUNITY. Students will learn five ways they can make their community rock!

Fitness Focus


Boosterthon supports our ongoing fitness focus at Cassidy Elementary and provides a yearlong fitness video series for our students!

Less Hassle

The Boosterthon pays for ALL costs out of their fee, freeing up our administration, teachers, and volunteers to focus on education. From logistics to cutting edge pledging technology and character resources, their team takes care of all the heavy lifting so we can enjoy the nine-day program. Learn more about their service at MoreThanARun.com.

Tons of Resources Included

Our school would have to pay thousands and thousands of extra dollars to receive around 7000 communication pieces, a world-class, interactive character and fitness program, the expert Boosterthon support team, and much more. With Boosterthon, it’s all included.

Cost-Effective
 Did you know most fundraisers allow schools to keep between 40-50%? But Cassidy will receive 51-52% and benefit from a fun, healthy, and easy fundraiser instead of one with exhaustive logistics and planning. Plus, the Boosterthon team pays for the entire cost of the program out of their percentage.

Giveback Every year Booster helps others in the U.S. and around the world by creating a giveback level in their program. Visit KidFitSalute.com to learn about how our school is part of giving back.

BIG NEWS! PTA Packages are here!

pta packagesThe PTA has heard your feedback. You have been frustrated with fundraising… requests to sell items, sponsor and pay for spaghetti dinners, and send in envelopes here and there for activities, yearbooks, and other items. But PTA fundraising can make a HUGE difference in our school. It’s the lifeblood of many much-loved programs and events at Cassidy. The funds we raise provide enhanced curriculum, improved technology, and exceptional events and activities for our children. They also fill in the gaps in state and district funding that all schools face. Last year alone, our fundraising efforts allowed us to provide 22 laptops to the school, and this year, with your help, we hope to give a similarly generous gift.

So what to do? Here’s our big news: We have taken action. This year, we are implementing a three-fold plan: (1) rejuvenate the calendar; (2) streamline ways of giving; and (3) offer PTA members (and everyone is invited to become a member!) the opportunity to have a true voice in where the extra money goes through a voting process.

What’s the first thing you will notice about this plan? It’s this: Gone are the days of forgetting to send in your envelopes! Gone are the days of writing lots of checks! PTA packages are here…..all of your needs, bundled together! In one easy payment, you can donate and purchase all of the events, activities, and items listed in one of our PTA Packages. Not only does this provide much needed support to the PTA’s fundraising efforts, but it also relieves you of the constant relay of donating and purchasing that goes on throughout the year.

Take a look at the packages. They include so much! From Spaghetti Dinner to yearbooks to Fun Day wristbands – there is a package for every price point.

Finally, the last piece of this change is YOUR VOTE. Every Cassidy PTA member (and this means you! Please join if you haven’t already!) will be given the opportunity to vote on what they would like our excess funds to support. The voting will take place at each grade level open house, so please become a PTA member today so your voice will be heard! You can sign up at orientation, or contact Robyn Clifford at Robyn.r.clifford@gmail.com.
