The Lincoln Elementary PTA is sponsoring its annual Leopard Lope, which will be held on the Lincoln Elementary Playground on April 21, 2017. The event will run from 5:15 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. A lot of planning and hard work has gone into making this event a memorable one for students and parents, as well as the community.
The Leopard Lope is the PTA’s annual fundraiser. This year, the PTA has a goal of reaching $2,850. All of the money raised will be used for educational activities such as field trips, teacher appreciation luncheons and gifts, Red Ribbon Week, Walk to School Day, maturation clinic, Back to School night, science fair, literacy night, and more.

There are also a lot of other fun, family-friendly activities that will be going on throughout the event including:
Three minute challenges: Students have the opportunity to try and earn tickets and money for the school by completing timed challenges: jump rope nonstop, hula hoop nonstop, or make 10 baskets.
A carnival celebration: Including two giant inflatable slides and a shorter slide with a little obstacle course. The carnival will also have face painting, photo booth, dinner, popcorn, snow cones, and many more fun surprises.
Annette Staffanson, the president of the PTA at Lincoln Elementary, commented, “Lincoln Elementary is an absolutely wonderful school! As volunteers, we can help it be wonderful for the children and faculty. We can make a difference in the way children view education, view themselves, and view life in general. We can help make school fun, help teachers feel appreciated, and provide opportunities that our fantastic teachers and administration are not able to provide without us.”
This event is definitely an evening you and your family will not want to miss out on! It will not only keep everyone entertained, but also allow you to donate to a cause that will benefit Lincoln Elementary students.
