Do you have a Growth Mindset?

Would you rather hear your child say – “I’ll never be good at this!” or “I need to keep practicing, eventually I’ll get it!”  We believe EVERY parent would want to hear their child say the latter.  That’s why we believe having a GROWTH MINDSET is so vitally important!  Check out this video to see what your dragon learned about having a Growth Mindset!

Tonight’s challenge in our Fun Run Program is to see which ONE class out of the entire school can earn the most pledges TONIGHT!  This one, very lucky class will earn….a silly string party!!  Each child will get their own can of silly string to spray – creating fun, smiles and lots of laughs!

Enter your pledges at www.FunRun.com

We are so grateful for your support because part of the funds raised through our Fun Run Program will go toward the building of a new wheelchair accessible playground at Davidson. We are proud that our contribution will go toward something that dragons for many, many years will get to enjoy!




Weekend Challenge!

We are halfway through our Fun Run program!  Great job to everyone for your hard work supporting our school and getting pledges. 

Today, students have been given a WEEKEND CHALLENGE! If a student receives a total of $2 per lap in NEW pledges ($60 in flat donations) or more, over the weekend, they will receive a bonus prize… the FLICK FOOTBALL… in addition to their normal prizes!

Check out the Mindspark Mystery Lab video about ZEST in Character Development and ask your child how to incorporate zest into their life!

Watch THIS video to see how we’re progressing in the program!

Have a great weekend!


Mystery Prize

Every day during our Fun Run Program, students will have challenges to complete and opportunities to earn prizes.  Tonight all classes will be competing for a Mystery Prize.  The class with the MOST pledges raised so far will win!

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!
