Dear Parents,

This week information was sent home with the students about our annual move-a-thon event.  The event is a yearly event run by parent council to raise funds to further enhance the learning experience for students at Silverthorn.  Funds raised this year will be used towards funding reading resources, technology for the classroom, an Arts Alive program and much more.  This year our goal is to raise $6000 towards to put towards enhanced programming. 

We need your support to help your child get donations from sponsors who are friends, relatives, or neighbors whom they know well.  STUDENTS SHOULD NOT GO DOOR-TO-DOOR to obtain sponsors. 

Thank you for your support to help make this fundraiser a success!
