Croft’s main fundraiser for the year, the Croft Community School Fun Run, is set for Thursday, March 16. This fun event will take place on the school field, with grades K-2 participating at 9 a.m. and grades 3-5 participating at 10:15 a.m.

We need 6-8 volunteers to help pass out water during the fun run. We also need volunteers for the first money collection day, on Thursday, March 23, from 8:30-10:30 am. If you can help on March 16 or March 23, please contact Hillary Freeman, PTA president, at

This fun fundraiser kicks off with a pep rally at Croft on Tuesday, March 7. After the pep rally, students can create an online pledge form, so they can get pledges for every lap they run at the Fun Run. This means that families and friends anywhere in the world can help support students. Please look for information to come home with your student(s) about how and when to set up an online pledge site and how to get pledges.

During the lead up to the fun run, students   will experience an amazing character theme, BACKYARD BOX OFFICE! It’s a movie theme all about making a difference by getting into character. Our students will learn from five REAL kid difference-makers. From inventors, to world-class speakers, to business owners, to world-record holders, these five kids will inspire our students to practice the five “Character Acts” and make a difference in our community.
