Knowledge-A-Thon

OUR LARGEST FUNDRAISER

Knowledge-A-Thon, commonly referred to as “KAT,” is our one major fundraiser of the year designed to help meet our school’s needs not covered by the school’s budget.  KAT also enhances and reinforces our Core Knowledge curriculum in a fun and positive way for students and staff. 

On Friday, March 15, we begin the fun with our KAT Kick-Off in the Forum at 1:45 pm. After the kick-off, each student will receive a KAT Booklet containing 100 grade-level-appropriate KAT questions and answers along with a pledge sheet.

Students will work hard over the next month to learn all the answers to the questions. During March and April, they gather pledges from family and friends to be collected according to how many questions they answer correctly on KAT Day. Students can request a “per question” pledge amount or a flat pledge amount from donors.

Knowledge-A-Thon Day is Friday, April 19. Students will come to the Forum, dressed as a question or answer from their KAT questions, and answer all 100 questions--It’s amazing what they can do!
