Move-A-Thon

MOVE IN as a supporter of our Koko Fund’s 2018 Move-a-Thon (MAT) and help us reach our fundraising goal!  This is our Koko Fund’s ONLY fundraiser.  On Wed., Apr. 18th, 1:30 p.m., JP pupils will jump, leap, slide, and generally move about to raise funds for our Koko Fund.  (Raindate:  Thu., Apr. 19th) 

Our Koko Fund enables many of JP’s youngsters, whose families face financial challenges, to go to summer camps and participate in after-school enrichment activities.
  Over the last year, many of our JP Koko recipients have participated in after-school classes at JP, e.g., science, sports, chess, acting, and art, as well as in programs at the Y.W.C.A., Princeton Soccer Association, and Princeton Recreation summer camp.

With nearly one third of JP youngsters who are eligible, our goal is to reach even more kids this year.  Our Koko Fund can’t do it without your help!  What can you do in support? 

Please fill out the MAT sponsor sheet that came home this week to support your “mover” and to help us reach our fundraising goal.  Or, you can go to PayPal and make a donation directly to our Koko Fund.  Use <johnsonparkelementarypto@gmail.com> and write “Koko MAT” in the notes section to ensure your gift goes directly to our Koko Fund.  Thanks.

All JP children who return a sponsor sheet will receive a banana slip to enter our MAT raffle!  The JP grade with the highest percentage of returned MAT sponsor sheets will win an extra recess.

Due to our snow closures, our deadline for Koko Fund donations to be included in the raffle and grade-wide totals, has been extended to Thu., Apr. 12th.

If you have questions, please call Dr. Ginsberg at 806-4240 or e-mail <robertginsberg@princetonk12.org>, or e-mail parent Amy Lansky at <amyblansky@gmail.com>.  Let’s MOVE to make 2018 our Koko Fund’s best year yet!
