About this fundraiser:
Welcome to the 2019 Dance for Davis Dance-a-Thon!
The Dance for Davis Dance-a-Thon is a dance for all three grade levels! The fall fundraiser, typically our biggest school fundraiser of the year, is a fun event in which students raise money by collecting donations or pledges for dancing a set number of minutes during a special in-school dance day. The Dance-a-Thon takes place at the end of the day on September 20th (all grades). Students will have the opportunity to dance for at least 40 minutes. If everyone participates, that is over 41,000 minutes of collectively moving to support our school! Not only does this support Davis Middle School, but it is fun and healthy, too!
HOW IT WORKS
Students invite family, friends, and neighbors to support them by contributing a flat amount for participating in the Dance-a-Thon.
