Gibson Elementary Fall Fundraiser and Pumpkin Run

We are a school where student learning thrives and children feel good about the place they call their school. We believe that this is because of the incredible students that attend our school, the awesome staff who believe that relationships with students are key to optimal learning and more importantly the incredible support of our families. We could not engage in the wonderful learning opportunities and the fun things we do here without your monetary support.


Each student will receive an envelope with a shirt, a pen, and a pledge sheet (for people who prefer to avoid the online avenue - please make checks payable to Gibson ES). Anyone who donates any amount of money gets to sign the student's t-shirt to be worn the day of the Pumpkin Run, Thursday, October 24th.


Online - Simply go to the link provided (,

SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE and type in your child’s last name and first initial, his or her teacher name, and donate on or before the end of the day on Thursday, October 24th.

Offline - Simply fill out the pledge form and send the form back with the donations on or before Wednesday, October 23rd.

The Pumpkin Run is a competitive race.* First, second, and third place for boys and girls in each grade level will receive a pumpkin and a Halloween dog-tag. Not only will we participate in the physical competition of racing, but we are challenging each class to raise $1000. Each class that raises this amount will be treated to a pizza party.

*Race times are as follows: Grade 5 at 7:00am (2 laps), Grade 4 at 7:05am (2 laps), Grade 3 at 7:10am (2laps), Grade 2 at 7:20am (1 lap), Grade 1 at 7:30am (1 lap), Kinder and Pre K at 7:40 (1 lap)

In order to support individuals, we have established the following incentives;

Every child who turns in $10 will receive a Neon Sticky Eyeball.

Every child who turns in $25 will receive a Dinosaur in Slime Filled Egg (plus lower level prize).

Every child who turns in $50 will receive a popsicle and extra recess (plus lower level prizes).

Every child who turns in $100 will receive a Mini Bright Magic Cube and be invited to a Hot Dog Diggity Lunch (plus lower level prizes).

Every child who turns in $200 will receive a Tie dye Drawstring Bag (plus lower level prizes).

Top sellers for each grade level will have the opportunity to TP Mrs. Ryerson and give a delicious surprise to Mrs. Keith.

Any families that would like to donate a pumpkin or money to purchase pumpkins for the race, please bring them to the PE room on or before Tuesday, October 22nd. Our goal is for every student at Gibson to raise money for our school. Your ongoing backing and support are both truly appreciated.

Money raised will go to purchase Chromebooks as we aim to raise enough money so each child in the school has all day access to his or her own Chromebook.
