The Second Annual Lowell Zumbathon, Lowell Gym, is March 13th from 2-4pm. The instructors are our very own Lindsay Jacobson, Veronica Castillo and Amy Peca. Join us for some fun and exercise all the while raising money to help the PTO. We will also have a bake sale, 50/50 raffle and the grade level gift basket auction.
Cost of the Zumbathon:
Family of 4 or more: $35
What is the grade level gift basket auction?
Each grade is assigned a theme. Parents in those grades are asked to donate an item that fits that theme or they can donate money that the grade level coordinator will collect and purchase the items for the basket. Once all the items are collected a basket is made. At the Zumbathon all the baskets are lined up on a table and people are able to write a bid for that basket (there is a sheet of paper in front of each basket). There are starting bids on each basket and at the end of the Zumbathon the highest bid wins!
We had a lot of fun doing this last year, and the parents really got into it and some really great baskets were made. People donated products, gift cards, money, experiences and so much more.
So what is the theme for my grade and some ideas of items?
PreK/K - Coffee & Tea Basket (ground coffee, loose leaf tea, gift cards, keurig machine, tea infusers, cookies and food, mugs, etc)
1st Grade - Summer Basket (cooler, lounge chair, sunscreen, sand toys, wagon, anything you would use over the summer, etc)
2nd Grade - Wine and Spirits Basket (wine, spirits, glassware, gift cards, cheese board, cheese knives, crackers and other edible items etc)
3rd Grade- Lottery Ticket Basket (lottery tickets)
4th Grade - Movie Night Basket (popcorn, candy, red box and theater giftcards, blu rays/dvds of new releases/popular movies, etc)
5th Grade - Game Night Basket (board games, Boston sporting tickets, sports memorabilia, gift cards for bowling, rock climbing, launch, etc)
Do I have to buy something?
This is a fun fundraiser we are doing and it is by no means mandatory. If you want to participate we welcome your contribution. Also if you want to participate but would rather donate money to be put towards the basket just let your grade level coordinator know.
How do I donate?
Each grade level PTO coordinator will be reaching out to their respective grades with instructions on where to donate or you may also email us a firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each grade level coordinator will have their own deadlines given their personal schedules and commitments. If you have something that you know you can donate immediately, please email us at email@example.com and we will coordinate with you.
