FoxTrot Fun Run is September 29, 2017

by Rachel Hernandez, Fun Run Coordinator

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.

2016 Fox Trot Fun Run Raises $14,385

A total of 410 students participated in the Fun Run and ran, walked, skipped, and danced their way through 8,200 laps, equivalent to 683 total miles! So far, the Fun Run has raised over $14,000 for the school, exceeding the original goal of $12,000. The donations collected help fund programs and materials supporting FHM’s Three Tenants: Individualized Instruction, Engaging Curriculum, and Strong Community

On November 4, over 155 individual student prizes were delivered to classrooms for distribution. Prizes are based on the amount a student raised and turned.  The items are labeled for each student and sealed so that they can open in their car or when they get home.


Thank you, Thank you to all the amazing volunteers who helped to make this event so much fun for the students. A BIG thank you to the students who make this event possible. They ran so hard and were so supportive of one another! It wouldn’t be an event without them!
