A Classroom Full of Fundraising Champions!


Mr. Arron Brown is a fourth-grade teacher at the Pembroke Intermediate School. And there must be something in the water there, because people really go the extra mile to support Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.

He also brought it into his classroom. Arron sets up regular fundraising challenges for his fourth-graders. When they reach $100, they get a popcorn and kickball party, or at $250, pizza and wings. Other days, everyone who brings in a donation gets an ice cream sandwich or gets to sit in his chair for a day. Anything to thank the kids for going out of their way to help people in need.

 

He knows money is tight for many families in his school district, so when a kid can contribute $4, it’s a big deal. He helps them see how important that is and how it builds community. So they not only get the fun of the rewards — they see their impact.

Cross your fingers for those kids, because they’re really close to their next milestone. “Right now, they are $2 away from an ice cream sundae. The deal is if they reach $250, they get to design their own ice cream sundae. And then they are $52 away from a pizza and a wing contest. So we go outside, we have a picnic with pizza and wings out back. And they get to sit there in the sun while their friends are running around the playground.  Great job everyone!
