Triton Elementary TEAM Parent Group to Sponsor FUNdraiser


Triton Elementary TEAM Parent Group is sponsoring a week long FUNdraiser. Donations will be put towards an adaptive playground at Triton Elementary and towards general TEAM funds. Triton Elementary Special Education Teacher Adam Anderson approached TEAM members about an adaptive playground for students at the school. He asked if TEAM could help in the planning, funding, and revision of the current playground in order to make it inclusive and accessible for all Triton students. TEAM stands for Together Everyone Achieves More, and is a group designed to facilitate parent involvement and enhance the student's experience at school. Some of the activities funded by TEAM are Teacher Appreciation Week, Book Fair Bingo, the end of year event to Air Insanity, and other great events that support students and staff.

In previous years, TEAM raised funds through donations from Cobra Cash for Kids. For the first time ever TEAM will attempt to replace thier Cobra Cash for Kids fundraiser and attempt to raise money through Boosterthon. The fundraiser officially kicks off on March 22nd with registration currently being open. Registration to sign up to get pledges is voluntary. Students will learn character building traits through daily announcements, and get donations from family and friends, culminating in the main event "Cobra FUNd Run '' on March 31st. This high energy event is an indoor GLO Run that all students will get to participate in for 45 mins with thier classmates during the school day.

A member of the TEAM Elementary group reached out to me to tell me about what is happening this month with thier big TEAM Boosterthon fundraiser. I asked her what the goal was. "We are raising funds to support Cobra Cove, an adaptive playground that will be inclusive for all elementary students. Right now, the playground is covered in wood chips. We plan to approach a revision of the current playground in a few phases. Our first step will be to put down some type of composite surface around the playground, and then move on to the next phase of adding adaptive equipment. We are also fundraising for our general TEAM funds so that we can continue to enhance all student's learning experience and support our great elementary staff. Boosterthon reached out to us and wanted to collaborate and support our fundraising goals, and we went for it."
