ChargerFest & International Festival

ChargerFest LogoChargerFest
Carnival, Fine Arts Performances, and International Fest

November 15, 2014
12 – 4 pm

The exciting afternoon of ChargerFest includes an international fest celebrating our language magnet focus, fine arts performances showcasing the performing arts talents of our students, carnival games and activities, kid-oriented raffles, prizes, food, and lots of fun.

We envision ChargerFest as both a FUN-raiser for our students, siblings, family, friends, and community, and a FUND-raiser to assist our fine arts, foreign languages, and athletics departments in meeting their operating budgets.

The teachers and administration at POMS do an amazing job of stretching budget dollars, but state funding only goes so far. In order to ensure that students have the unique extracurricular opportunities and the quality academic experiences that POMS is known for, we rely on parental and corporate support.

Bellaire Fun Run

2013-BellaireFunRunThe Bellaire Fun Run is coming up Saturday November 22, 2014:

The link is open for registration. CLICK HERE

We’re looking for as many POMS students to register; last year we received over $1K from POMS enrollments!

POMS Registrations & Volunteers:
POMS will need to make available volunteers for the kids race. We will need people organizing the kids at the start line, on the course at the turn around point (making sure they do not go the wrong way) and at the finish line handing out the participation award. Also we will need someone identifying the first male and female and gathering their info for the award ceremony. These are the positions needed for the race itself. Let me know if you’re willing to volunteer for this portion of the race.

You can email: sally.lechin@gmail.com. Please share with fellow parents or staff. Let’s show our support!

Please consider registering to attend (it’s a lot of fun!) CLICK HERE

Last year POMS had 105 runners indicate at registration that they were running on behalf of POMS. POMS was given $5 per runner = $525.00 (Each school/organization is given $5 per runner if that runner indicates they are affiliated with said school/organization.) As a profit sharing partner POMS was also given $498.95 of the proceeds which took POMS grand total to $1023.95.
