Spell-a-thon Documents 


Attention All MDE Students and Families! It’s Spell-a-thon time!

Thank you for being part of this important fundraiser for our school. Every cent raised go directly to our PFC to support so many school programs that make MDE the amazing community that it is, including our computer program, instructional aides, reading assistance, yard duty, enrichment and much more!

Spell-a-thon consists of 3 easy tasks:

Task 1
Ask friends, family, neighbors and colleagues to sponsor you for our Spell-a-thon. They can pledge money for every word you spell correctly OR a set amount for participating. Log your pledges on the attached pledge sheet (extras available online). Your pledge sheets are due back to your teacher on FRIDAY, OCTOBER 26th.

Task 2
Keep and study the attached grade-level spelling words list and practice before you take the test on
November 1st-2nd.

Task 3
Your corrected test, pledge sheet and a collection envelope will come home by November 13th. It’s time to collect the pledges from your sponsors. You can also get more pledges from any sponsors you may have missed at this time. It’s never too late to get sponsors!
All the pledge money you collect must be turned in to your teacher by FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 30th to be eligible for our amazing prizes...


● Every student who collects at least 1 pledge will be entered into a raffle for a MDE Spiritwear T-Shirt
● The Class that raises the most money in each grade level will win an Ice Cream Sandwich Party
● The Class with the highest percentage of words spelled correctly will win an Ice Cream Sandwich Party
● The student who raises the most money overall will win a Chromebook and a VR Headset OR $200 Amazon Gift Card!
● The second highest pledge earner will win a Wonder Workshop Dash OR $100 Amazon Gift Card
● Each student who collects $100 or more will be invited to a Special Reward Event AND entered in a raffle for a Chromebook OR $150 Amazon Gift Card.

So, go out and get your sponsors! We are counting on each of you to make this Spell-a-thon a success so the PFC can continue to support our incredible school community!
