5th Annual Monster Mash: Sponsorship Deadline – Friday, September 18th

The Parent Council is thrilled to announce that our 5th Annual Monster Mash will be held on Friday, October 3rd.  The Monster Mash is an event where all students will dash or dance with our fabulous, high energy DJ outside in back of the school. For sponsorships, please consider a FLAT DONATION for your student’s participation. Grandparents, neighbors, friends, and businesses are encouraged to contribute.  All students who contribute $25.00 or more in sponsorships will get their name printed on the back of the Monster Mash T-Shirt and can wear it for the entire day.  To make it some personalized, we are allowing the students to choose a nickname or a monster/superhero name to have printed on the shirts. All other students will be required to be in school uniform. Businesses may have their corporate logo on the shirt for a sponsorship of $100.00The grade with the most participation will be rewarded with a special prize! 

Our goal is to get everyone’s help and support to make this the BIGGEST Parent Council fundraiser we have ever had!  It's important to note that Monticello Academy does not want our students to solicit support door to door. And, regardless of the sponsorships collected, ALL students are allowed and expected to participate. The money raised will be put towards activities, field trips, teacher appreciation, emergency supplies for each student, and other events sponsored by the Parent Council.

We will have a table outside the office prior to school starting on Friday, September 11th to collect your sponsorships and guarantee that your student's name is printed on the T-shirt. You can also turn in your completed sponsorship form and donation to the office in advance. Please encourage your student to participate and provide him/her with the opportunity to earn a sponsorship donation. This is a great opportunity to teach our students the value of working towards a goal. Thank you in advance for your generous support. 

If you have any questions whatsoever, please feel free to email
