Boosterthon Fun Run!
Our Shakerag Foundation will be hosting a Boosterthon Fun Run on March 26th! We are raising money to purchase technology to put into the hands of our students - Chromebooks and iPads for our classrooms! Our county has increased our bandwidth and will soon be providing interactive projectors in all classrooms - but in order for us to be leaders in utilizing technology as an instructional tool we need your help getting mobile devices for our students!
We will have a pep-rally on March 17th to kick off this fun event, and students will be encouraged to get pledges March 17th through March 25th for each lap they run during the Fun Run. This is going to be a lot of fun for our students, and with your support we're hoping to add 2, 3, 4 or more devices to each classroom!
Pledges can be from parents, grandparents, relatives and friends - from all over the world! Pledges can be flat donations (i.e. $25) or donations per lap (i.e. $1.00 per lap, where students will run between 25 and 35 laps with 35 being the maximum). To help personalize this experience, students will have an opportunity to add their own video to the Boosterthon website to send to friends and families in other states and countries - more details coming soon.
Please join our efforts to bring Chromebooks and iPads to our classrooms by supporting our Fun Run on March 26th!

Doodle 4 Google - deadline 3/20
Before there was an airplane, there were doodles of cool flying machines. And before there was a submarine, there were doodles of magical underwater sea explorers. Since the beginning of time, ideas big and small, practical and playful, have started out as doodles. Google is now ready for more. One talented young artist will see his or her artwork on the Google homepage and receive a $30,000 college scholarship and a $50,000 Google for Education technology grant for his or her school.
This year's theme: If I could Invent One Thing To Make The World A Better Place...
Shakerag is home to 3 previous Doodle4Google finalists - we have amazing students! If you'd like to participate the deadline for online entries is March 20. If you want us to mail in your entry, you must submit your entry along with a completed participation form to our front desk (attention Ms. Erikson) by Friday, March 7.
Visiting or Volunteering?
All visitors are required to sign in at our front desk and wear the appropriate badge at all times while at Shakerag. Parents dropping off their child or staying for lunch must sign in and wear our blue Visitor badge.
