Dance Fit

The Dance Fit Fundraiser is coming to North Grafton! Sadly, we were not able to have Fun Fair in May, and likely won’t be able to again this year, and so we need to do the best we can with this program. This will likely be our only major fundraiser this year, so we could use your help to raise money for our schools, teacher resources, and school supplies! Kids will dance at home or at school for up to 35 minutes to raise money for NGES and NSS. We know times are hard, and we thank you so much for your support — kids can participate in many ways whether they get donations or not! Sign them up today at www.funrun.com!

Don’t forget to share your child’s Student Star Video with family and friends on social media!

Fitness rewards (prizes!) will be earned as usual, but mailed straight to your student’s home at the end of the program this year!
