Citizenship – Character Development

Did you know a essential part of our Fun Run Program is character development?  At Davidson Elementary, our PTA’s mission is to make every child’s potential a reality.  Their potential extends beyond the classroom and out into society.  Developing and maintaining good character is crucial to a child’s success.

This week your dragon learned about Citizenship and what that means.  Check out this LINK to see what they learned!

Thank you for your support!


Student Star Video

The Dragon Fun Run Student Star video starring YOUR child is the EASIEST and BEST way to ask for a Fun Run pledge. Log into FUNRUN.COM, click “Create Student Star Video” button, add a photo of your child, and SHARE it via email and social media!

The money earned will go directly to support PTA programming, such as the two BRAND NEW programs this year – Donuts with Dad and Muffins with Mom.  These events are wonderful opportunities for family members to enjoy special time at school with their dragon.  Thank you for your support!

Kick Off Pep Rally!

We kicked off our Dragon Fun Run today with an awesome Pep Rally!  The day was made even more incredible by a special appearance from Tompkins Varsity Cheerleaders and Football players!  What an extraordinary surprise! We are so grateful to the Falcons for taking time out of their day to support our Dragons, thank you!

The first step in our Fundraiser is to register your student at www.FunRun.com (they get a prize just for registering!)  If your child was here last year, you can use the same login.  This account is where all your friends and family will enter their pledges to earn your student more rewards.

Keep logging onto our website and Facebook page for more information, updates on nightly challenges and daily winners.

Thanks for your support!


Fun Run Almost Here!

Hello Dragon Friends and Family – We’re a few days away from kicking off the Dragon Fun Run – our big PTA Fundraiser!  Monday, October 22nd our 2-week fundraising program will begin, and we are so excited! We’ll start with a Pep Rally, and then your family will have time to get pledges. At the end, every student will participate in the Dragon Fun Run!

This year, our goal is to raise $33,000 for PTA Events and Programs, as well as school improvements and professional development, and we need EVERYONE’S help! Please begin thinking about friends and family who could pledge your student for the Dragon Fun Run. We want this to be fun and easy for everyone, so think of others who can support your student as they run laps to help our school.

Look for a Pledgebook to come home on Monday – Pep Rally Day – with more information. And don’t forget to save Friday, November 2nd—FUN RUN DAY—on your calendar. You’re invited to come out and cheer on our students! More details to come. Thank you for supporting Davidson Elementary and have a great day!”


Annual PTA Fundraiser Kicking Off!

PTA’s mission and purpose is to make every child’s potential a reality thought quality programs and family engagement. We sustain these efforts through fundraising.

This year’s main PTA fundraiser is the Dragon Fun Run!  Once our program begins on Monday, October 22nd, family and friends can pledge toward the number of laps your students will run on the day of the Fun Run: Friday, November 2nd during their specials time at school.

Our Dragon Fun Run also comes with a world-class character theme. This year’s theme is MINDSPARK MYSTERY LAB, combining S.T.E.A.M skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building. While they’re teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to solve mysteries, our students will learn five 21st-century character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.

This year, our goal is to raise $33,000 to directly support PTA Events and Programs, as well as school improvements and professional development, such as:

  • STEAM Materials
  • Junior Achievement Program and BizTown
  • Watch D.O.G.S. Dad Program
  • Spring Party
