Important Update

Panther Pentathlon Kickoff

We kicked off the Panther Pentathlon on Monday, September 12 with a rousing rally in the gym. All students received a manila pledge envelope with a green paper attached to the front. On the envelope are details about donations, prizes, and deadlines.

The Panther Pentathlon is our home-grown fundraiser that was started six years ago in response to dramatic funding cuts. The success of the Pentathlon continues to keep four key programs from being cut:  Athletics, Drama, Music, and Foreign Language. The money raised is also used to purchase computers and keep our technology up to date. Updating the school’s technology resources is on of the major goals for this year’s Panther Pentathlon. We would love to have a full set of computers in each classroom so that we can meet the needs of our students.

The Panther Pentathlon is the most efficient way to raise money! More than 93% of the money donated goes directly to the school. Most of the 7% overhead also goes back to the students in the form of prizes. Our goal is to raise $55,000 this year in order to support music, drama, foreign language, athletics, and technology!

The Pentathlon Celebration event takes place on Thursday, October 6th during the school day. Donations turned in by Wednesday, October 5th will be counted toward individual and class prize totals.

JCCEF HeartprintMore information about the Pentathlon is available on the Jacoby Creek Children’s Education Foundation website. Donations can be made online through the website a well.  http://www.jccef.org/panther-pentathlon
