Tiger Challenge Begins!

The case for your student getting into the game*

By participating in raising funds, students own that they have a part in making the extraordinary experiences planned for this year come to fruition.

Students can demonstrate their initiative, hone their persuasive cases (knocking door-to-door with parents, calling distant relatives) and expand their entrepreneurial skills by organizing bake sales or lemonade stand sales.  

Through this process, students appreciate the generosity of their family/friends/neighbors and cherish the opportunities of overnight study trips, Innovation & Exploration Projects and 6th grade play that much more.

With that said, the Tiger Challenge is fun!  

Students will earn prizes for themselves and for their class based on the pledges collected by October 7th and the participation in the field day events on October 7th.

Pledges can be made by cash or checks payable to "Teach Boosters" or online (with 2.5% handling).

Students can also earn $15 for every business sponsor they bring in!

Read more about this year's Tiger Challenge here.

Thank you to Tiger Challenge Co-Chairs Amy Daane and Mukta Naran.

Thank you for supporting our students!

* My husband and I had previously just wrote a check for our son for these types of "a-thon" fundraisers at other schools.  Last year was the first year that we encouraged our then 4th grader to engage in the Tiger Challenge fundraiser.  He mustered up the courage to call grandparents and great aunts/uncles and truly appreciated their generosity and going to Camp Ocean Pines.
