Dear Swope Families,
At Swope, we as a staff and community hope to provide the most outstanding and well-rounded experience for all of our students. We provide challenging and essential academics that are designed with 21st century learning and STEM education in mind. In fact, we are currently in the process of becoming a Governor recognized STEM Academy. Along with Swope’s strong academics, our students have the opportunity to be involved in after school sports, intramural competitions, Robotics competitions, many diverse clubs, core team competitions, PROWL positive behavior incentive supports, and more.
To support all of the programs and opportunities at Swope, we do ONE BIG fundraiser each year… THE PANTHER PROWL! This event is one of the coolest things we do at Swope as an entire School.
Thursday, OCTOBER 27, 2022 from 12:45 PM – 2:00 PM all Swope students will be given a PANTHER PROWL t-shirt and sunglasses at no cost. The Panther Prowl is a color run event like “Color Me Rad” events. Students will run/walk through clouds of different colors of cornstarch. The more donations an Enrichment class averages, the more times they will go around the course and the more colorful they will become.
We are looking for PANTHER PROWL corporate and/or family sponsors to help us make this event a success. The form below outlines the benefits of each corporate/family sponsorship. Sponsorships go directly to covering the costs of the PANTHER PROWL so that every student is able to participate without cost. In the past proceeds from the event have gone to purchase computers for North and South Hall, campus upgrades, clubs and sports support and more! This year we have a focused goal of increasing student community and developing the culture to support student success, curriculum for entire school which aligns without the standards of a STEM academy. Deadline to be listed on the back of the t-shirts which will be worn by students at the event and then on Wednesdays throughout the school year is no later than this upcoming Friday, September 30, 2022.
The student kickoff assembly was held last Tuesday, and the students will be bringing home donation envelopes. Understanding that any amount of donation is a blessing, we are hoping that each student is excited to help fundraise. Our goal per student is $50.00, but any amount is appreciated and needed. Donations accepted until October 27th – the day of the PANTHER PROWL.
If you would like to be a part of the TENTH ANNUAL PANTHER PROWL we need:
- Corporate/family sponsors
- Volunteers for the day of the event
- Volunteers to help find corporate sponsors
For more information regarding the PANTHER PROWL, please contact Mrs. Sala at TSala@WashoeSchools.net or call us at (775) 333-5330.
Sincerely, The SWOPE PANTHER PROWL Committee
