WildKat Challenge 2019
WildKAT ChallengeWhat is the WildKAT Challenge?

  • The WildKAT Challenge is an exciting PTO sponsored event that takes place during the school day, and involves every student, and many parent/family volunteers.
  • It is a Knowledge-A-Thon (KAT) and our school’s primary fundraiser.  The goal is to empower students with knowledge and reinforce their current curriculum, while making this a fun and educational fundraising event.
  • Each student- in K – 5th grade -will be given 50 questions. (4k- will receive 20 questions.) Questions will be taken home for review prior to the event.
  • Each student will participate in this STEM challenge with points from this being added to their total for the event. At Wequiock our students are using Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to solve real world problems using the Engineering Design Loop.
  • The students are asked to solicit pledges or donations for their participation. 
  • Pledge sheets will be sent home with the students’ questions.
  • Students, teachers and committee members receive and wear a WildKAT T-shirt on the day of the event.

Community Business Sponsors:

  • To help off-set the cost of the event, businesses are asked to sponsor the WildKAT by making a $100 donation.  In return, their logo is featured on the back of the T-shirt and noted in the Parent Connection Directory for the following school year.
  • Wequiock families who own a business or know someone that might sponsor the WildKAT are encouraged to ask for support. 
  • A sponsor letter is attached for both new and past sponsors.

T- shirt Design:

  • The class with the highest average from the past year picks the t-shirt color.
  • All students will have an opportunity to design the logo for the front of the T-shirt.  More information about the Logo contest will be sent home soon.

WildKAT Committee and volunteers:

  • If you would like to help with the event, we ask that you contact the event chair via the PTO email prior to the event. (There are opportunities to help via the committee or also volunteering the day of the event only.) This will allow us to be more prepared and organized on the day of the event.

 

Anyone interested in joining the committee or volunteering is encouraged to contact the WildKAT Committee at wequiockpto01@gmail.com.  Thank you for your support!
