Record-Breaking DASH Year!

Hello Central Community! The Central PTO would like to thank our wonderful community of students, staff, teachers and families for supporting the annual Firehawk Dash. Because of your collective efforts, the Firehawk Dash raised nearly $30,000— that’s nearly $10,000 more than last year and a new record for Central!

This is valuable funding that will be used to help support our students and teachers this year. Proceeds from this important event help pay for important teacher training, classroom supplies, field trips, guest speakers, and new equipment that fall beyond the district’s budgetary reach.

This year’s top honors go to Mrs. Vela’s Kindergarten class. Small but mighty, these kinders collected $3,207 in donations and raised the most money of any class in the school—winning a pizza party for their stellar efforts. With 16 students submitting donations, Mrs. Vela’s Kindergarten class also wins the coveted Kalmaya Cup for being the class with the greatest percentage of student participation.

Total Laps for the School: 4,481
Class with the Most Laps: Mr. Orbanosky’s class with 445 laps
Individual with the Most LapsPreK-1st grade: Harlow Vela with 23 laps
Individual with the Most Laps2nd-5th grade: Charlie Sanseverino with 22 laps
3 Top Earners: Bailey Burianek, Jazmyn Jensen, Anna Kragerud

The other big winner is our sister school in Uganda, the Moonlight Primary School. Ten percent of the Dash proceeds—$3,000—will go toward helping the school build a new classroom building and providing better conditions for their students in rural Uganda. Our three top earners will present the check at an assembly on Wednesday, November 30, from 9:30-10:00 a.m. Think Humanity, a local nonprofit group working with Moonlight, will accept the check and present on how the funds will help Moonlight and its students.

This record-breaking year would not have been possible without our generous sponsors. Please show your appreciation by giving them your business when you can and spreading the word of their giving!
