HOOT SCOOT INFORMATION

 

Theme: I Can Change The World By...

 "One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world" - Malala Yousafzai

What is Hoot Scoot?

The Hoot Scoot is White Oak Elementary’s main fundraiser. On 10/1/21 all our kids will run laps around our track at White Oak. Prior to that day, students are encouraged to collect donations from family and friends. All money raised will go towards student educational and teacher initiatives for our school.

 

What is the Hoot Scoot theme and slogan?

Each year we create a theme and slogan that always encompasses White Oak's Belief Statement. This years theme is "I can change the world by..." and our slogan is, “One book, one pen, one child, and one teacher can change the world” - Malala Yousafzai. We are encouraging our students that they can change the world by: Being Kind, Being Friendly, Making Smart Choices, Being Thoughtful, Focusing on What Matters, and Being Fearless. 

How does this work?

Students ask friends and family to donate flat donations for their fundraising initiative. Then students will run the track on 10/1/21. ​

What if most of your family and friends live far across town or across the U.S.?

NO PROBLEM! Call them or send them an email asking them for a  donation and include the link to the school website: www.woespta.org/hoot-scoot  ​

Checks can be written out to White Oak Elementary PTA. For online payments go to woespta.org/shop to make and select a donation option. 

Can I make online payments for more than one child?

Absolutely! Select the donation option for one child and enter in that child's name and teacher into the mandatory fields before checkout. Then add another donation to your cart and enter the second child's name into those fields. (ex. Add $5 Donation to the cart for Bobby and then add $5 Donation to the cart for Sally.)
