FLY

F! L! Y! Sharon Eagles FLY High!

What is FLY?

FLY is a summer learning program to encourage our Sharon Eagles to read and practice math during the summer break.

FLY also raises essential funds for our PTA to use towards field trips, classroom needs, and technology. 100% of funds raised benefit Sharon School.

In 2021 our Eagles read and practiced math for an impressive 31,340 hours and raised nearly $40,000! How many hours and fundraising dollars can we achieve this year? Whether 5 or 150 hours, $5 or $500, every student can help contribute!

How Does FLY Work?

SPRING

  • May 6th–20th: Students set a goal of how many hours they will read and practice math over the summer. (Max of 4 hours per day or 320 total hours.) Students gather pledges from friends, family, and any employer corporate matching based on the hour goal they set. Flat donations are also welcome.
  • May 20th: Deadline to enter sponsors.

How will you spend your 80 days of summer?

15 minutes a day = 20 hours = 2 raffle tickets
30 minutes a day = 40 hours = 4 raffle tickets
45 minutes a day = 60 hours = 6 raffle tickets
75 minutes a day = 100 hours = 10 raffle tickets = 100 Hour Club
(Max of 4 hours per day or 320 total hours.)

 

Set goals, gather sponsors, and fill out a FLY Sponsor Form by May 20th to get started!
