Gates Fun Run
Gates Fun Run 2018
We are excited for this year's Gates Fun Run! Hosted by Boosterthon, the Gates Fun Run begins with a Pep Rally on Wednesday, 10/10/18 and ends with a run on Friday, 10/19/18. Family and friends anywhere in the world can support our school by giving pledges toward the number of laps (30-35) your students will run, walk, skip, or even dance on the day of the Gates Fun Run.
This year students will learn about MindSpark—a mystery theme combining S.T.E.A.M. skills (Science, Technology️, Engineering, Arts, & Math) with character building. In this science-infused character theme, your students will help a team of brainy kids solve problems using a super-lab hidden inside a school. While they’re solving mysteries, your students will learn five character traits that will help strengthen themselves: Citizenship, Growth Mindset, Zest, Integrity, and Teamwork.
On the day of the Gates Fun Run, every child will have his/her customized T-shirt to wear. The front of the shirt will have the new logo (see below) and there will be a sticker on the back that gets marked each time your child completes a lap. As our biggest fundraiser of the year, we are aiming to raise $30,000 for Gates School. We need YOUR help to make the Gates Fun Run a success.
The Paul P. Gates PTO funds and supports programs and materials above and beyond those afforded by the Town of Acton Boxborough's education budget, supplementing and supporting our children’s curriculum and cultural growth. The Paul P. Gates PTO budget continues to enhance the Gates community and experience for students and families.
