Fun Run for Technology

This event encourages health and wellness for our entire Breckenridge Elementary community during school hours.  We will bring together all students, staff, parents and community member to run for 30 minutes at a time around a 1/16th of a mile track.  The way we will raise money is by having the children collect pledges from friends and family members while the parents and PTSA board members collect business sponsorships.  The children will be rewarded with prizes depending on the amount of pledge money they collect.  ALL children, regardless of pledge collection, will get to participate during this event.

These bags are made from woven polypropylene - one of the most popular plastics for making food containers like yogurt cups. 10-40% of the polypropylene used in the bags is recycled from post consumer use. Most of the bags hold up to 50 lbs, which is due to the plastic fibers woven into the bags.  We receive 50% of the profits from this sale.  The bags make great gifts for friends and family.  We launch this sale in February but the bags are available for purchase year round online. We still receive credit for the online sales even if it is not during our sale.  When purchasing online, www.mixedbagdesigns.com, use school ID 45940.


Movie Night

Approximately five times a year, PTSA hosts a movie night at the school.  We charge $10 per child for three hours, slice of pizza and a movie. The money raised through movie nights is used to offset the cost of field trips.
