Dine & Donate, Jogathon Kickoff, Bike Bus, LCFF Forms, & more

Dine Out Night: Way to go Dragons – our first dine to donate event was a big success! Thank you to all the families who ordered at Chipotle Wednesday Night. We raised almost $500 for our school.

If you missed the fundraiser, don’t fret!  Mark your calendars for our next one Wednesday, September 28th at Smashburger. Thank you for supporting our school! 

Jogathon – Today kicks off the Phoebe Hearst annual Jog-a-thon fundraiser. If you’re new to Phoebe Hearst get ready! Your student(s) are coming home with a fundraising packet to collect donations from friends, family, neighbors, and local businesses who can sponsor their running at the Jog-a-Thon. Funds raised fully support our art program with Ms. Jane, fund classroom enrichment and field trips, and will kick start a new music program! Stay tuned for that. The more students fundraise, the more prizes they earn. There are some cool prizes!

Donations can be made super easily online – just share this link with friends and family, or visit our website here:  https://phoebehearst.org/jog-a-thon/

Please be sure to submit your student’s clothing sizes for their prizes here. The attached flier provides all the information about the prizes and how to donate online. 
All donations are due Friday, September 23. 
The Jog-a-Thon is Friday, October 21

Bike Bus – The first Bike Bus was held this week and it was a great time for those riding to school together. Lots of students and families ride together, Bike Bus or not. If you want to ride your bike to school with an awesome group of Phoebe Dragons, just get in touch with Megan Fidell at (916) 346-6354 and she will connect you. The next official Bike Bus Week will be October 3rd – 7th. There will be a Bike Bus orientation at East Portal Park at 4pm on October 2nd. Hope you can join! Here’s a little secret…I know of a principal that plans to ride his bike that Friday!

LCFF Forms
Families play a critical role in ensuring our Sac City Unified schools are properly funded. Although all students receive free meals regardless of income, the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) application still determines how much funding our district receives. You can help our school community by completing the LCFF application by October 31, 2022. It only takes a few minutes for you to help us protect critical funding for our students! Even if you know that you won’t qualify it is still imperative that you complete the application

• Fill out one application per household, whether online or paper, by October 31, 2022. The online application is also available in district-supported languages.

• Families who wish to complete the paper application will receive it in their student’s Back to School packet. Please return the completed application to their school’s front office.

• If you have any questions, please email [email protected] or visit scusd.edu/lcffapp
