Let's Move 2018! Dance-A-Thon - Wednesday, October 17th

The PS 59 PTA’s LET’S MOVE 2018! DANCE-A-THON Fundraiser is a very important, fun and healthy way to raise money for our school! With tremendous participation from our families in our Let’s Move 2017! Move-A-Thon Fundraiser, The PTA raised over $16,000 that funded many educational Field Experiences and In School Enrichment programs for every grade. The PTA would like to thank our families and ask for your help once again with this simple pledge-based fundraiser as we embark on a new year! You can help us reach our goal by supporting our Let’s Move! 2018 Dance-A-Thon, scheduled for Wednesday, October 17th! We are teamed up again with The Get Movin’ Crew© to make this event fun, easy and profitable!

Please help us by helping your child raise a minimum of $50.00 in donations. That’s just five flat donations,(5 donors at $10.00 each).

It’s that simple!

We Need All Families to Complete 3 Fast/Easy Online Steps!

  1.  Register your child by visiting thegetmovincrew.com. It's free, easy and takes just minutes!
  2. Share your child's fundraising webpage via email or text message to 10-15 friends and/or family. It’s super easy!
  3. Post on Facebook or Social Media. In two clicks, you'll be surprised to see donations coming in from family, friends and co-workers. Post, SHARE and see what happens! Did we mention EASY?!!

(if you registered last year, you can use your same user name & password & re-register your child in their new classroom)

Our total school goal is $15,000
