Our one and only fundraiser is held in the Spring. We have
three days of fun! Our children participate in a Trike-a-Thon by
riding their bikes, trikes, or scooters and earn money from pledges.
At the same time we hold a Silent Auction
of donated items such as weekend trips, sports tickets, fun
children’s parties, etc. The three days culminate with a Friday
Family Fun Event with fun activities for the children, yummy food,
and lots of things to do. The Silent Auction ends at this event as
well. All monies raised are used for improving the educational
environment for our children and families.
TAT FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DOES THE TRIKE-A-THON WORK?
Held on the lower parking lot, Wednesday & Thursday morning,
typically during the 3rd week of April, each class has 20 minutes to
ride laps around a course on their “trike.” As the children ride,
parent volunteers count and record the number of laps. This is not a
race, speed is not important! We all cheer each other on. Riding
schedules will be posted in each classroom closer to the event. TIP:
Have your child(ren) set a lap goal!
COME EARLY FOR THE PANCAKE BREAKFAST! Enjoy complimentary breakfast
and coffee each morning of the Trike-A-Thon. Open to COL families and
WHAT TRIKE WILL MY CHILD RIDE?
We encourage you to bring a trike (or bike or scooter) from home,
whatever your child feels most comfortable and safest on. School
tricycles may also be used, but there is a limited supply. All riders
must wear a helmet.
WHEN CAN I BRING MY CHILD’S TRIKE/BIKE/SCOOTER? For
your convenience, you may bring your child’s
bike/helmet the Tuesday before, and park it in the Fellowship Hall.
Please be sure to clearly label child’s name with masking tape on
both bike & helmet.
