Holy Redeemer Presents A Virtual Talent Show
Friday June 12, 2020 at 6:30 P.M.
We can hardly believe the end of the school year is approaching. As we continue to find ways to keep our school community strong, we are excited to announce that we will be hosting a virtual talent show fundraiser. Our talent show will be a family-friendly event beginning at 6:30 P.M. on Friday, June 12, 2020. We will close this crazy school year out with a BANG! All of the money raised from this fundraiser will go to the Holy Redeemer School HSA Hawks Helping Hawks campaign, which helps to offset tuition for families financially impacted by the stay-at-home orders and COVID-19.
ALL Holy Redeemer Families are invited to submit talents. We will have three categories:
* PK-3rd Grade
* 4th-8th Grade
All talents must be uploaded to YouTube and submitted by June 8, 2020. Videos cannot exceed 2.5 minutes. This is an opportunity to show off the baking skills you learned while home, your basketball spinning skills, showcase your musical talents, your comedy sketch, your dance moves, or any other kid-friendly talent!
The $5 per entry registration fee can be made on this Go Fund Me Charity page or sent to Holy Redeemer School (email@example.com) via PayPal by June 8th.
Regardless of how you pay for registration, please include the talent show participant's grade, name (or initials), and "registration" in the comments.
SHOW & PRIZES
There will be CASH prizes for the top three winners of each category.
The link to the talent show will be sent to all HRS families that morning to watch the LIVE show hosted by our Student Council and Staff. Set up a viewing area with snacks and comfy seats for the family, kick back, and enjoy the show.
For 24 hours after the show**, you will be able to vote for your favorite acts from each category.
Each vote costs $2 and should be submitted to Holy Redeemer School (firstname.lastname@example.org) via PayPal.
Please include the talent show participant's grade, name (or initials), and "VOTE" in the comments.
Please note: votes can also be made on this Go Fund Me Charity page however the minimum amount per transaction is $5. Be sure to include the above mentioned information in the comments.
Multiple votes can be made at once so long as there are specific instructions for the distribution of votes in the comments. For example, a family donated $20 to vote for their two children. The comments section should state:
5 VOTES to Susana Distancia in Grade 7
5 VOTES to Mary Hadalittlelamb in Pre-K
**Any votes made prior or after the specified time will not be counted.
SPRING INTO ACTION CHALLENGE
UPDATE 2: WINNERS ANNOUNCED! Thank you to all who participated in the Spring Into Action Challenge. Participants logged an impressive amount of miles!
Congratulations to the 3 families who logged the most miles:
Your trophies will be delivered!
UPDATE 1: What an amazing community! We reached and have exceeded our initial goal faster than we could have ever expected! We are so grateful for the overwhelming response from the Holy Redeemer community and even though we reached this goal, the need is exceedingly great. Additional contributions are most appreciated. It's not too late to join the challenge! THANK YOU!
THE CAUSE: Holy Redeemer School’s Home School Association (HSA) in conjunction with the school's Kindness Committee are looking to assist those Holy Redeemer School families unable to fulfill their 2019-2020 tuition obligations as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. 100% of the funds raised will be earmarked by HSA for this cause.
HOW IT WORKS:
-Make a minimum donation of $25 per-family (additional donations are most appreciated)
-Get out and run, walk, scoot, or bike while practicing social distancing from April 9th through May 21st
-Snap a pic or two and post it on social media using our hashtags #HawksHelpingHawks and #HawksSpringIntoAction
-Encourage others (Grandparents, cousins, friends, neighbors, etc… to participate)
-Log your family’s total miles using whatever method (spreadsheet, Word document) you would like. Note: if 4 family members each walk 1 mile this would count as 4 miles towards your total.
-Please note: All donations are greatly appreciated and there is no obligation to participate in the fitness portion of the event.
-any questions can be sent to email@example.com
THE FINISH LINE:
The 3 families that log the most miles will win a prize!
If the school reaches our donation goal the entire school will win a prize!
Winners will be announced on May 22nd!
