A big THANK YOU to everyone who helped make the Fox Trot a success! The volunteers who did everything from setting up the running area to playing Ferdinand Fox; the parents who came to watch and cheer on the kids; the teachers who took time out of their day to bring their students to the field, encouraging them and, in some cases, even running with them! I was so impressed with how energetic and enthusiastic our kids were, too! I witnessed many moments of support and kindness amongst the kids, and that is one of the things I love so much about FHM.
Now it is time to recognize our kids’ achievement by making sure we get our pledges collected. All money raised goes directly to the school and directly to benefit our children. Even though, the Fun Run is over, you can still ask for pledges. Did you not get around to asking Aunt Myrtle before the run? Is there a business you frequent that is civic-minded and might want to make a donation? Do you work for a small business and feel comfortable approaching them for a donation?
Pledge sheets and donations are due by our new deadline of October 16th! Make checks payable to: FHMF. Place pledge sheet and funds collected in an envelope with the words FUNRUN and student’s name written on the envelope. Please, place this in the CSN mailbox in the school lobby.
Funds collected are used to determine what prizes the students earned. Here is this year’s prize poster.

Pledge sheets for the Fox Trot Fun Run should have come home in your kids’ Thursday folders yesterday. Again, this the CSN’s second largest fundraiser of the year. It is a lot of fun for the kids, and the school benefits tremendously from the money this event generates.
This year, we will be giving students “Book Bucks” (credit at the Scholastic Book Fair) as incentive prizes. There will also be prizes for the student showing the most school spirit during the Run and a prize for the most creative running attire. In addition, the top five individual earners will receive a private diabolo lesson! The PE department will get $500 and the top fundraising classrooms will get $100 each. There will also be a $300 prize for the school (use to be determined by the Student Council), if we meet our fundraising goal. The rest of the proceeds go directly to the school to support our facility and educational needs.
This year the CSN has added an online donation option. Cash and/or check donations are still the preferred payment method, as the software company does take a cut of our donations, but this is a great opportunity for us to solicit donations from out-of-town relatives, and folks who specifically ask to pay with a credit card or ask if there is way to donate online. The website is set up to only accept fixed amount donations at this time.
