The Prairie Stomp is a school wide welcome back activity that serves as the major fundraiser for Prairie Elementary School. The 2019 Stomp will be on Friday, September 27th, with the rain date on October 4th. 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 the PTO programming. Money raised through this year’s Prairie Stomp will be used to purchase two Ga-ga-ball Pits (~$7300 each), birthday books for students, and classroom materials (classroom library books, book room collections, & flexible seating). 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: Level 1 ($20,000): Matt Wilhelm (BMX anti-bullying message) Level 2 ($25,000): TBD Level 3 ($30,000): TBD In addition to the school wide fundraising goals, there are other running goals: 1. Individual: The top lap running boy(s) and girl(s) 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 extra recess equipped with a bouncy house. 3. Prairie Spirit Award: For the boy and girl from each grade whom our teachers and staff feel demonstrates above and beyond effort, teamwork and attitude. 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. Donations can be made anytime beginning August 13, 2019 through October 11th, 2019. We cannot have a successful event without our amazing volunteers!

Through this fundraiser, our goal is to provide equipment and tools for all of our players to help them develop outstanding opportunities to achieve their very best skills. This year, instead of asking families to put in hours of fundraising, we would like to offer the opportunity to contribute to the needs of the team through a Classmunity donation. An example of some of our most recent expenditures include: Team golf bags Rain suits Range balls for tournaments Accommodations for overnight stays Team snacks/subs during rounds Practice rounds for WIAA tournament series Practice Sticks (ball retrieval tubes) Practice balls for the Practice Sticks Team poster Senior Night gifts Food and gifts for the end of the season banquet Many of these expenses are recurring from one year to the next. Items we need to purchase this year include off-season strength/conditioning equipment, short game training devices, 6 to 8 golf bags, 2 to 3 push carts, and team umbrellas as well as most of the other consumables mentioned above. Your generosity is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
