Laps for Learning is an all-school event, in which every child participates! Each lab will run/walk for a designated time allotment during school hours. Our purpose is to promote health and wellness, while raising money that will go directly to the classroom by purchasing new educational tools and classroom materials.

 Prizes will be awarded to the girl and boy who complete the most laps in each class. The homeroom completing the most laps will win possession of the coveted traveling trophies. Finally, the student who raises the most money will receive the grand prize: FOUR SEASON PASSES TO ELITCH GARDENS.

In addition, if you bring a business/organization that donates to the “Laps for Learning” cause, those contributions will be applied towards your child’s fundraising total. The business will be featured on the 2016 Laps for Learning banner for a minimum donation of $100, advertised throughout the day during the race, and included in the Excel PTO business directory. Please contact Jessica Girvan at or 303-589-5539 to make a business donation. Business logos need to be in “vector art” format and be turned in by April 1, 2016.

Remember, any money (including business donations) collected for Laps for Learning can be applied towards volunteer hours ($10=1 hour).

Please use this envelope to collect and record your donations. Checks may be made to “Excel PTO.” For credit card donations, please go to Envelopes need to be turned in on or before race day, April 15th.

Thanks in advance for your support of Excel Academy, and LET’S RACE!
