STEPPIN' ArounD the world
This is the final fundraiser for the school year and takes place in May. It is a team building dance event. Each classroom is trying to raise the most donations to win the prize and it is new each year! Each classroom decides on a dance and then makes a video clip that can be sent to family members for donations. There is a display board in the main lobby that shows where each classroom is at the start of the school day. The teachers and their students really get into the fundraiser. On the final day, the students get to show their best moves for about 30 minutes in the gym with their grade classmates! A DJ plays all the best dance songs and parents are encouraged to watch the students having a blast.
We have lift off folks - Steppin’ Out Of This World has officially launched!
Here’s how to see your favorite dancers showing off some seriously out of this world dance moves:
1. Go to Donate to the Steppin’ 2019 then find your child’s room number to see his or her dance video.
2. Support your dancer by either donating online or via the envelope that will be sent home in backpack mail.
3. Forward your child’s video to family and friends so they can show their support.
4. Cheer on your dancer at the main Steppin’ Out Of This World event on Friday, May 10 in the Bell 3rd floor gym. The tentative schedule is:
12:30 - 1:00 pm – Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 3rd Grade

1:50 – 2:20 pm – 1st & 5th Grade
2:30 – 3:00 pm – 6th & 7th Grade
Each grade is competing to see which classrooms can meet (or exceed!) their fundraising goals (which is based on is $75 per student). Winning classrooms will receive a trophy, as well as an individual prize for each student. Any class that meets or exceeds its goal will receive an extra parent chaperoned recess.
Don’t forget you can earn $50 extra Bell Bucks toward your classroom goal by writing a space themed rap, poem, or song and emailing it (videos are welcome!) to firstname.lastname@example.org or submitting it to the office.
