Pledging May 23-May 31
RRICK Run June 1

Hello Families!

The Boosterthon RRICK RUN has begun. Last June the RRICK RUN was so successful, we raised over $18,000 for the 2016-2017 school year, and were able to do away with many of the other old fund raisers that were done in the past.  Money raised this June will help fund field trips, classroom enrichments, technology and so much more for the 2017-2018 school year.

How it works:
Pledging will begin on May 23 and end on May 31.  You can pledge any amount per lap or pledge one amount for participation. (For example $2.00 per lap or $25.00 total)  Pledging is super easy. You can do it online with a credit card or send in check/cash with your child.  You can also use the site to email friends and family any where in the country to support your child in the RRICK Run and their school.

This year's theme is Backyard Box Office! The students are very excited to have the Boosterthon team at lunches for the next week! This program focuses on character building and fitness, so each day, for the next six days, the students will be learning different character lessons and working together to help raise funds with their families. 

The last day of the program, next Thursday, June 1, each student will be running 30-35 laps. Families are welcome to come cheer their child/ren and classmates on and join them on their last lap around the track.  

We are also looking for voluteers to help hand out water.

More information about each grades time slot will be coming shortly.

Log onto funrun.com and register your student. The student registration code is 934-515.

May 24-June 14

The Hopedale Memorial Elementary School Student Council will again be collecting food donations from May 24 – June 14 for distribution to families within the Hopedale School District.  Some families in our area rely on the school lunch program to provide one and sometimes two meals a day for their children.  During summer vacation the expense of providing these extra meals at home can be difficult and for some families something they simply cannot afford. Donations collected will help support the nutritional needs of 20 families within the district this summer.  Please help us to provide HOPE by extending a helping hand to families this summer. 

Donations may be sent into school with students or dropped off in a designated box in Hopedale at:
•    Hopedale Memorial Elementary School  Main Office
•    Hopedale Jr. Sr. High School Main Office
•    Bright Beginnings Center Main Office

In addition, collection boxes will be available Friday, May 26th, during the Memorial School Memorial Day Program as well as during Morning Drop-Off 7:50 am – 8:10 am on Adin Street at Memorial School.
