Rainbow Run Fundraiser

We are excited to announce our 3rd annual Rainbow Run Fundraiser! It will be kicked off on January 31st. Be looking for information in your child's Friday folder. Rainbow Run
This fundraiser is our once a year school-wide fundraiser that supports the purchase of technology for our entire school.
In the past, through the generous donations of our Elk Creek families, this fundraiser has allowed us to purchase technology in the following ways...

  • Chromebooks for each student in 3rd-5th
  • Chromebooks for 1st & 2nd grade
  • 30 desktops in the computer lab
  • projectors for classrooms
  • document cameras for classrooms
  • teacher laptops

This year we will be using a company called Run4Fund$. It will work the same as in the past with donations per lab or a flat donation amount per child. 100% of your donations will be tax deductible. You may donate online at r4funds.com/schools/elkceek

"The Rainbow Run will be an ALL student participation activity during school hours that will be fun, will promote good fitness and will drive school spirit!" -Run4fund$

Our school will earn a substantial profit from every pledge and these funds will be used to benefit all students. The graph below shows where the fundraiser money will be going for the 2019/20 school year.
Projected Tech 2019/20
Many of our devices (IPads and Chromebooks) have reached end of life. They are at least 4-5 years old. That means they will be surplussed at the end of the school year 2019. Devices are surplussed because Google and Apple do not support and update the devices after four years. That opens up our Jeffco network to a security risk when they stop updating. Certain functions and apps on the device stop working as well and they cannot be used for testing. So the majority of the money from the fundraiser will be going towards replacing the surplussed devices.
*LanSchool is a teacher efficiency tool that can also assist with classroom management. It allows teachers to: see what their students are working on at a glance, display student work to the entire class, easily send students to a website or installed application, take a quick poll to check for understanding, send a message to the class or an individual, quickly refocus individual students, and efficiently gain the attention of the entire class.
