Pits and Alleys

Mark Your Calendar for the Pits and Alleys Fundraiser!

This year’s Pits and Alleys fundraiser will take place on Super Seward Saturday*, December 1st, from 8:00 a.m. to noon. Pits and Alleys is a fun obstacle course game that Seward Montessori students love to play in gym class. For the eighth year in a row, Seward gym teacher Bill Garner will host a series of Pits and Alleys games for Seward Montessori students in Grades 1 through 8. Slots are $15 per student.

Registration forms are available in this issue of the Splash or for download at sewardmontessori.org. Paper forms are also available in the office. All forms are due on Wednesday, November 14th. Return completed forms with payment to your child’s teacher.

Pits & Alleys T-shirts are available for $12, or you may purchase a shirt+slot special for $25.

We will be selling baked goods and coffee for parents and kids to enjoy during rounds

of Pits and Alleys. Please contact Kari Cornell (see below) if you are willing to donate baked goods or if you would like to volunteer at this event.

A portion of the proceeds from this event will go to the Seward Physical Education Department for the purchase of gym equipment. The remaining income will go to the Seward Montessori PTA to help fund teacher grants, purchase supplies for the classrooms, pay for field trips, and provide quality educational programs for our students.

Thank you for your support!

*What is Super Seward Saturday? This year we’ve arranged to hold the Pits and Alleys fundraiser during the weekend of the annual Seward Neighborhood Winter Frolic, which is an art crawl in the Seward Neighborhood. Seward Montessori is hosting several artists in the cafeteria, so be sure to swing by and check it out! You will find more details in the November 2018 edition of the Splash or the PDF flyer below.
