About this fundraiser

The Prairie Stomp is a school wide welcome back activity that serves as the major fundraiser for Prairie Elementary School. The 2021 Stomp will be on Thursday, September 30th with a rain date of October 1.

This approach to fundraising avoids selling products and directs ALL profits (less Stomp expenses) back to the school by encouraging students to get pledges and run laps to raise money for PTO programming. Yearly PTO programming includes staff appreciate dinners, RAZ kids online library, and funding for special events and field trips when they become available again. In addition to our yearly programming, the 2021 Stomp will raise money for a new projector and screen for our gym! The projector and screen will connect to our current sound system and can be used to enhance lessons and allow for multimedia presentations.

Students are encouraged to collect either a flat donation or per lap pledge. On the event day, students run/walk a looped track on the school field for 20 minutes. The students gain an appreciation of teamwork, a sense of strong school unity, and the importance of being healthy and exercising all while having fun with their fellow classmates.

The PTO provides each child with a FREE Prairie Stomp t-shirt and a healthy snack on the event day. The students also work together, as a school, to achieve school wide fundraising goals and earn prizes.

The prize levels are as follows:
$10,000 - School wide PJ Day
$15,000 - Movie and Popcorn in your Classroom
$20,000 - Admin. in an Igloo (students can spy on their administrators as they spend a day working from an igloo in the hallway)

In addition to the school wide fundraising goals, there are two running goals:

1. Individual: The top lap running individuals in each grade level will receive a
special recognition award for their strong performance.

2. Classroom: The classroom within each grade level with the highest average lap
per student will earn an ice cream party.

We want everyone to know that the success of this event is not possible without your support and the tremendous efforts of perseverance, determination, and will-power of each student to do their very best. We will celebrate the collective effort of every student! Thank you for supporting Prairie in such a positive way.

As a sponsor, you can donate a set amount (flat donation) prior to the event. If you prefer to make a per lap donation, we ask that you wait to enter your donation until after the event. The student you are pledging will let you know after the event how many laps he/she completed so you may calculate the total amount to be donated. REMEMBER, Prairie PTO is a 501(3)c organization and any donation you make to the Prairie Stomp is tax-deductible.

Donations can be made anytime beginning September 1, 2021 through October 15, 2021.

We cannot have a successful event without our amazing volunteers! You can sign up to help out on the day of the Stomp through the following link: If you’re unable to volunteer, we still encourage you to stop by, watch and cheer on your student. Signs are welcome!
