The final tally is in for FLY! We raised over $64,000 for Sharon School, 82% raised by the Sharon community, 12% through corporate matching and 6% through corporate sponsorships. The money raised will go toward field trips, classroom supplies, student activities, technology and much more. 64% of our Eagles were reading and practicing math for 29,769 hours this summer! We are proud of these results!
All participants received a T-shirt donated by Sonic, a Chuy’s kid’s meal, Donatos personal pizza, and a homework pass. We had 118 members in the 100 Hour Club. They were recognized on the wall of fame and also received additional prizes for their extra hard work. The classes per grade level with the most participants were awarded with a Tie Dye T-shirt Party. The winning classes were Ms. McSwain, Ms. Thompson, Ms. Swanson, Ms. Smith and Ms. Rowell. Congratulations to these classes!

The teachers appreciate this program! They see the benefit of the student’s hard work to keep up with all they have learned each year.
I would encourage any parent and child to participate in FLY! My students not only enjoyed the Pep Rally & prizes but I have enjoyed seeing the growth my students made in their reading over the summer! Ms. McSwain – 1st Grade
The FLY program is a winning program that helps strengthen the reading and math skills for all our Sharon Eagles. It gives them a goal to work towards and helps them build their knowledge and to get ready for the year ahead.
Ms. Rowell – 5th Grade
