2023 Fundraising

PTA strives to cover ALL expenses during the school year with a single fundraiser. This year, that fundraiser takes the form of our 2023 ROCKin' Read-a-thon!

From September 25th - 29th, we'll be crushing reading goals and fundraising using an awesome online platform to track our progress. The easy system allows our friends and family to pledge their support in the form of secure credit card donations. Our goal is to fund field trips, assemblies, classroom and grade-level support, and ALL of our other PTA Programs like Trunk-or-treat and BINGO Night, for the entire school year!

Get started- register TODAY!

Register your student to participate using the convenient online PledgeStar platform. Use the QR code below or visit PledgeStar.com/lake and click "not registered for this year's event." Enter your name and follow the prompts, where you'll be able to add your reader(s). Once registered, your students can set a fundraising goal, and you can easily select who will receive donation request emails or texts. Registration takes less than 5 minutes.


The first 200 students to register will earn the first of MANY prizes to be distributed throughout the event. Along the way, we'll have lots of opportunities for kids to earn epic individual, classroom and school-wide prizes, including a grand prize of one EZY Roller per grade!

Keep this letter at home and use the attached calendar as your guide to our Read-a-thon. You'll hear more from teachers, the school and the PTA throughout the event. But don't hesitate to reach out to the PTA directly at LakeDolphins@gmail.com for any reason.

Your kids will be excited to share progress towards their reading goal and all of the fun happening around campus. Your friends and family will be excited to encourage reading and support your student. And the Lake Elementary PTA is excited to see what we can accomplish as we work together to encourage reading and raise funds to support the entire Lake community.

Thanks in advance for ALL you do to support your students, their teachers and our school!
