Jefferson Middle School is teaming with Springfield Public Schools District 186 to Live United!
The 2016 United Way fundraising campaign will be kicking off October 3rd and JMS wants to do our part! Students will be able to help raise funds for the United Way through a variety of activities during this year’s campaign. These activities include the following.
Students may pay $1 to wear jeans with their uniform shirt on Wednesday, October 5th.
MILK JUG CONTAINER CHALLENGE
During lunch the week of October 3rd, each grade level will have the chance to drop change into their grade’s milk jug. For each time their grade level fills the jug with change, that grade level can earn extra recess time.
On October 11th and 13th, ghost suckers and pumpkin suckers may be ordered by students to be sent to a friend. The suckers will be delivered on Halloween during lunch time.
GIANT JAR of HOT CHEETOS
Can you guess how many hot Cheetos the jar holds? Students will be able to make guesses on October 3rd, 5th and 7th. Each guess will cost 25¢ or 5 guesses for $1.00. The student whose guess comes closest without going over wins the Cheetos.
Students may buy raffle tickets for a variety of prizes during lunch on October 11th, 13th and 14th.
Students may pay $1.00 per group member to have staff record the group’s best lip sync video! These videos will be played on Jefferson’s TV station before announcements during the week of October 11th. During lunch, students may vote by placing change in the container for the video they like the best! The top vote-getters will be allowed to perform their song “LIVE” along with the winning staff performers at the assembly scheduled for October 14th.
KISS A PIG!
Several brave staff members have volunteered to kiss a pig! Students may vote during their lunch shifts during the week of October 10th by placing change in the container for the staff member they would like to see kiss a pig at the October 14th assembly.
Students may choose to attend our United Way celebration assembly on October 14th by giving a $1.00 donation that day! Winning lip sync videos will be performed live. The lip sync champions will be crowned. And, the “winning” staff members will pucker up to kiss that pig!
