This year’s main fundraiser for de Portola is the Patriot Fun Run! Our 2-week program kicks off on Monday, February 13 with a Pep Rally. After the Pep Rally, family and friends anywhere in the world can support our school by giving pledges toward the number of laps your students will run on the day of the Fun Run. Our Fun Run will take place during the morning of Thursday, February 23. This year, we have asked the fundraising experts at Boosterthon to help with our Fun Run to make it more profitable, easier, and fun. All families are invited to come out and cheer on our students on February 23.

During the 2-week program, students will experience an amazing character theme, BACKYARD BOX OFFICE! It’s a movie theme all about making a difference by getting into character. Our students will learn from five REAL kid difference-makers. From inventors, to world-class speakers, to business owners, to world-record holders, these five kids will inspire our students to practice the five “Character Acts” and make a difference in our community.

Our school goal this year is to raise $40,000 to fund many invaluable PTA programs, including Art Masters, Chalk Fest, and the Patriot Garden. We also hope to raise enough money this year to build a STEAM lab for our students. Thank you for your support! More details to come.
