Green Walk for Fun-ds is underway!
With 49% of our families having turned in their Green Walk packets we have now reached 39% of our goal ($23,694 has been donated). It takes time for the packets to get to people and for them to respond, so we are pleased with the response thus far. We want to encourage those families who have not turned in their packets yet to do so as soon as possible. Our goal and expectation is 100% participation. Thank you for your support!!
The Green Walk For Fun-ds is an annual event which engages everyone in our school to help raise funds which are critical to our school’s continued operation and success. Some of these include:
- Scholarships: Many families need a little assistance to be able to send their children to FHCS.
- Ongoing facility maintenance (flooring refinishing and bathroom remodeling, etc.).
- Technology Investment (Computers, Media Center upgrades, etc.).
- General operating costs - 70% of our budgeted income is student tuition and the remaining income is generated through donations.
Here are some ways you can help:
- Pray for a successful Green Walk For Fun-ds. This is the first and most important aspect which will lead to the greatest amount of success, not just for this fundraiser, but for Flint Hills Christian School overall.
- Make sure your family sends out the appropriate number of fundraising letters to family, friends, businesses you patronize or anyone you feel would have a heart to support Christian education.
**Every student who completes their packet and returns it to the office by April 23, you will receive a free dessert card from our Green Walk Packet Sponsor, Chick-Fil-A!**
- Please consider a special financial contribution to the school at this time to help us finish the year financially strong.
- If you would like to volunteer to help with the Green Walk event on Friday, May 3, please contact the school office.
Our goal is to raise at least $60,000 or more through this effort. Please pray for this event and help out through the above-mentioned means. The success of this event is crucial to meeting our budget needs and dynamically impacts our ability to further improve our school’s educational opportunities.
