Commerce Elementary PTA

Color Run

Fun RunWho
: School-wide event put on by the PTA.

What: Our biggest fundraiser of the year – our students run on our outdoor track to raise money for the school.

When: September. This event comes up quick in the school calendar – so be on the lookout!

Where: In the school fields

Why: This event brings the whole school together to earn money for PTA programs throughout the year. Our goal is to raise as much money as possible in this one event so that we can spend the rest of the year giving money to teachers for field trips, buying technology for the school and putting on fun events for the students.

How: We need volunteers for this event to help get the kids organized, hand out snacks and pump them up as they run.

$ – Raise money!

Tips: We’ll release a schedule showing running times for each class. When your students are running, cheer them on! Parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles and anyone else who wants to support your child can come and cheer!

Students receive a “Fun Run Shirt”. Hang on to this shirt – several times throughout the year, your teachers will ask you to send your child in wearing their Fun Run shirt!

1. What if my child isn't there for bagel day? Their bagel will be saved and given to them the next time they are there. Unfortunately we don't have a way to keep it fresh for too long and we apologize in advance about that.

2. Do these come with cream cheese? No.

3. Are these nut free? As we get these bagels from a third party (Detroit Bagel), we cannot guarantee they don't come in contact with nuts.

4. What time will my child receive their bagel? Bagels are delivered and distributed to classrooms in the morning but we are unable to guarantee a specific time each classroom will receive their bagels or what time teachers will pass them out. We suggest having bagels be an extra snack rather than counting on them being the only snack of the day.

You have until 9/14 to sign up for this year's Bagel Days. All bagel days must be prepaid for the year. Visit our website at www.commerceelementarypta.com/pta-membership to sign up. If you have additional questions, let us know!
