We are so excited to celebrate our 39th Annual Exercise-a-thon!
The Exercise-a-thon is a student-centered fundraising event. Students collect donations in support of their participation in 100 minutes of exercise. All funds raised directly benefit PBCCS students. Your dollars will help to continue the enrichment opportunities that we believe are so valuable to each child’s education: physical education, music, art, place-based field work and activities.
At PBCCS, fundraising doesn’t just fund “extra” - it is necessary to keep our programming running! As a public charter school, PBCCS receives 17% less per student funding than other public schools. For this reason, our programs rely upon our ability to raise funds from outside sources.
We encourage all of our Hawks to participate! Our goal is to exceed our earnings from last year and raise $20,000 through our Exercise-a-thon. Your support is needed to help meet our goal!
This week students will be bringing home an Exercise-a-thon packet. It includes:

Post a video on a parent’s social media, with appropriate settings
