Extra Life 2017
On Friday, November 17, Pioneers will be participating in Extra Life 2017. Extra Life is a gaming marathon with the purpose of raising funds for sick kids. You can learn more about Extra Life at www.extra-life.org if you like.
The schedule for the week of November 13-17 will be slightly different. 2nd/3rd/4th Pioneers will come as normal on Tuesday. 5th and 6th grade Pioneers will NOT come on Wednesday and Thursday as usual. Instead, on Friday, ALL 5th and 6th grade Pioneers will come together. We will begin our gaming marathon at 9:00 AM. At 3:00 PM, 5th and 6th grade students will have the option of staying at WMS, or leaving to go back to WIS as normal. Kids who stay late MUST have the permission slip below filled out!
2nd/3rd/4th grade Pioneers are welcome to come over to WMS to join in the marathon after school. Simply come to WMS anytime after school on Friday, and drop your Pioneer off with me. These kids MUST ALSO have the permission slip below filled out!
All students will need to be picked up by 9:00 PM, at which point our gaming marathon will be complete.
Of course, the point of the gaming is to raise money for kids in need. All of the funds we raise from our gaming marathon will be going to Seattle Children's Hospital. You can click on the "Support Me" button below to donate any amount! Please donate if you can, and help us spread the word via social media or just telling your friends and family.
I’m gathering permission for the Extra Life marathon digitally to keep the paperwork manageable. Look for the form further down on this page. We are planning to have pizza for dinner, so if your child is staying, please bring $4 to help cover the cost of the pizza.
We could use a few items to help out the day of the marathon. We could use Xbox 360 controllers, Wii controllers, and games for both of those systems. Also, snacks, drinks, plates, and napkins would be helpful. If you can assist with these needs, let me know on the form below.
I could also use an extra parent or two here during the marathon. If you are interested, please contact me:
I’m very excited about Extra Life with the Pioneers this year. Let’s raise some money to help sick kids!
