We have kicked off our 2nd annual Stampede fundraising campaign. For those of you
who were not here last year, the Stampede is Grand Mountain’s major fundraising
event. During the Stampede (aka Fund Run), students will be given 15 minutes to run,
skip, or walk as many laps as possible around a 1/10th of a mile track for K-5th and a 1/8th of a mile track for 6th – 8th grades. This year we have decided to do the Stampede on 2different days, Thursday, September 29th for the secondary (middle school) students and Friday, September 30th for the primary (K-5) students. Students, staff, and parents who have participated in this event all have a wonderful time.

At Grand Mountain we strive to have active and productive students. To raise funds for
our school, our students will be asking their family and friends to make monetary
pledges that reflect their activity in our Stampede. Each lap they run or walk in a 15-
minute period on that day can be matched by financial donations, or if donors chose,
they could simply make a flat donation.


In addition to being able to participate in Stampede, EVERY student (almost 1100 of
them) will receive a Stampede t-shirt. Special prizes and awards will be given out to the
top boy/girl lap runners for each grade, the top 3 students who raise the most funds, the
class that raises the most funds, among TONS of other prizes (More Information to
come). Students who turn in their donation envelopes (with donations or not) on time
will also be entered into a drawing for some great prizes!
Some of the things the Stampede funds were spent on last year was our first ever Trunk or Treat, the elementary Glow Party (dance) and we sent every student K-8 on a field trip.


What we need from you? To assist your student(s) in collecting donations from friends,
family and even co-workers. Donations can be cash, check or online donations (links
located below). Information on how to sign up to be a volunteer for the day of the event(s) will be sent out within the next week.
