Join Wildwood Elementary's Popcorn Fundraiser for an Unforgettable Field Day!

Popping with Purpose: How Wildwood Elementary’s Popcorn Fundraiser is Making Field Day Extra Special

Introduction

Imagine a school field day so full of joy and laughter that it stays in children’s memories for years to come. At Wildwood Elementary Middle School, such a day isn’t just a dream—it’s a reality in the making, thanks to the annual Popcorn Fundraiser. As the scent of buttery popcorn wafts through the air, the community gathers in anticipation. This isn’t just about the popcorn; it’s about the smiles on the students' faces as they enjoy a day of play and the funds needed to make it happen.

The Popcorn Fundraiser, running from April 29th to May 2nd, is our way of ensuring that every child can delight in the festivities of Field Day without a worry. It’s about providing that slice of pizza that fuels their energy for tug-of-war, the snowball that cools them down after an exciting sack race, and the laughter that echoes as they bounce around in Mr. Moonbounce.

This initiative is about community strength, about every parent, teacher, and student coming together for a common cause. So, let’s pull back the curtain on this wonderful event that empowers the Wildwood Elementary Wildcats to sprint, jump, and play to their heart's content.

Team Spirit in Every Kernel: Setting Up for Success

With the power of the Double Good app, setting up for success is as easy as a few taps on a smartphone. Parents are invited to enter the vibrant world of fundraising by creating a Pop-Up Store using the special event code: TJRFLN. It's like opening a virtual shop right from your living room, where you can invite friends, family, and neighbors to support our Wildcats with their purchases.

The steps are simple:

  1. Download the Double Good app, available on both iOS and Android platforms.

  2. Enter our unique Event Code: TJRFLN to ensure all your efforts benefit Wildwood Elementary.

  3. Create your own Pop-Up Store, adding a personal touch that reflects your child's efforts.

Once your store is set up, share the link far and wide. The app does the rest, tracking orders and contributions in real-time. It’s a hassle-free way to rally the community around a noble cause, ensuring that every popcorn purchase goes directly towards a field day that's both fun-filled and free of charge for our students.

As we gear up for the fundraising week, let’s remember that it’s not just about hitting a sales target—it’s about harnessing the Wildcat spirit, where teamwork and collaboration reign supreme.

A Legacy of Joy: Celebrating Our Past Achievements

Wildwood Elementary has a tradition of turning kernels into cherished memories. Last year, our community raised an astonishing $1,800 through the Popcorn Fundraiser. This impressive sum transformed the school's field day from ordinary to extraordinary, providing a slew of activities that left our students beaming with joy and our teachers filled with pride.

The success of past fundraisers has been the cornerstone of legendary field days. With the funds raised, we've managed to cater mouthwatering pizzas, refreshing snowballs, and scrumptious funnel cakes. But it wasn't just about satisfying the taste buds; we also invited exhilarating vendors like Mr. Moonbounce and GameTruck, where students laughed in the bouncy castles and competed in friendly laser tag matches.

This year, our goals are set even higher. We aim to exceed last year's accomplishments by funding an array of vendors that will make our field day an unforgettable experience. Think of water slides to slip down, obstacle courses to conquer, and even a magic show to spellbind our Wildcats. The popcorn you pop could be the ticket to creating a magical day for every child.

So, let's band together once again and fill the fundraising thermometer to the top. It's more than just funds; it's about crafting an event where every child can soar with excitement and land in a pile of unforgettable memories.

Racing Towards Rewards: Celebrating Our Top Sellers

At Wildwood Elementary, every popcorn sale is a step towards incredible rewards. This year, we're raising the stakes with prizes that will make every student eager to participate. Imagine the thrill of being handed a hoverboard, the joy of riding a new bike, or the excitement of exploring a brand new tablet. These aren’t just rewards; they’re tokens of achievement that our students earn through their hard work and dedication.

The anticipation builds as the fundraiser progresses, with the top three sellers gaining not just fabulous prizes but also the pride of contributing significantly to our school's success. The competition is friendly yet fierce, with students motivated not just by the tangible rewards but also by the desire to make their field day extraordinary.

Here’s what awaits our champions:

  • First Prize: A state-of-the-art Hoverboard

  • Second Prize: A brand-new bicycle

  • Third Prize: A latest-model tablet

Additionally, various gift cards and merchandise from popular brands will be distributed to encourage all participants to give their best. It’s not just about being the top seller; it’s about doing your part and knowing that every popcorn bag sold brings a smile to someone’s face.

Let's pop to the top, Wildcats! Show your spirit, share your store, and let's make this fundraiser a record-breaker.
