Hit The Track!

Hit The Track For The Wolf Pack

2013 Fundraiser


WackyWolf Full

Last year’s Hit The Track event was a huge success so we are doing it again!  We raised over $9000 for NMES and helped to purchase our Wacky the Wolf mascot uniform.  The students love seeing Wacky at school events throughout the year.  The money raised this year will be used to purchase recess equipment for students and various other items needed for the school.  PTA funds also provide field trip transportation, classroom magazines, Cultural Arts assemblies, family activities (such as dances, ice cream socials, movie nights) and teacher appreciation meals.


During the week of October 7-11 all students will Hit The Track.  They will run or walk to keep moving around the track for a 45 minute block of time.  We are asking that students get sponsored in the form of a donation* to NMES.  Our school keeps 100% of those donations!  This Donation Spreadsheet  should be used by students to track their donations.  Checks can be made payable to NMES PTA and cash donations are also accepted.  Please send all checks, money and completed forms to school in an envelope labeled PTA Hit The Track with your child’s name and teacher in the bottom corner.  Return it to school in their red folder by their race day.


If each student collects a minimum of $15 we would surpass our total from last year.  Every dollar benefits our students so feel free to have them share this fun event with family and friends that may be interested in supporting them and our school.  This Hit The Track Sponsor Letter can be used to spread the word.  


EVERY CHILD WILL PARTICIPATE regardless of whether they have collected any donations.  The event encourages students to get moving, promote healthy bodies and have fun!  They can wear their NMES school spirit shirts or anything blue on their race day.  Family members are welcome to come cheer on their children during their scheduled track time.  Parking at NMES is minimal, so please park on the street or behind the fire department.  Please understand that if it is rainy or wet outside we will be holding the event in the gym and unfortunately will not be able to accommodate spectators in that case.
