Titan Challenge:  Friday, October 14th During School Hours (Rain Date 10/21)

TOR’s main fundraiser The Titan Challenge is back!

The Titan Challenge is an opportunity to come together as a school community to raise much needed money for our school enrichment and activities. It's coordinated by parent volunteers and teachers during the school day. 

 How Does it Work:

●      TOR students collect donations from family and friends for the next few weeks leading up to our Titan Challenge Day on Friday, October 14, 2022. Donations are due by October 12, 2022 and can be turned in to your child's homeroom teacher with a donation/pledge form.

●      The Homeroom in each grade level with the most donations wins a PIZZA PARTY!

●      Homeroom classes will form teams and the best team with a “theme” wins’ free tickets to the TOR Monster Mash on 10/28. Past years themes included Zombies, Sports Teams, Camouflage, M&M colors, and Hats. This gets students excited about the Titan Challenge and they bond with classmates.  Principal Fox selects the winning team. 

●      On October 14, students will complete an obstacle course with their teams getting great exercise outside and in the gym.  Rain Date will be 10/21/22.

●      Students don’t have to collect money to participate, but those who do will be entered to win fun prizes depending on how much they collect. Our school Goal is $12,000.  Our goal per student is $50.  Again, it is not mandatory to donate to participate.  No donation amount is too small and yes, we accept change! TOR will keep 100% of the dollars raised to support our students, because our PE teachers and parents volunteer to run the event.

When: During School Hours on Friday, October 14 with a rain date on Friday, October 21
