Frostwood Elementary School 2014-15 Fundraiser!

We’re raising funds for Frostwood!

The Boosterthon Fun Run program is a healthy alternative to traditional product sales that raises much-needed funds for our school and over 1400 others across America. The Boosterthon program also promotes three specific values during the fun-filled experience:  Fitness, Leadership, and Character.

This year’s character theme is ROCK’N TOWN LIVE, a music festival theme all about COMMUNITY! Students will learn five ways to make their community rock where they live and play.

Boosterthon Fun Run Basics

The 9-day program will kick off with a 30-minute school-wide Pep Rally on Wednesday, October 29 and conclude on Friday, November 7 with the Boosterthon Fun Run event.

Students will be getting pledges toward the number of laps they will run at the Boosterthon Fun Run. Students will run between 30-35 laps. 35 is the lap max.

Every student participates in the Fun Run, regardless of pledges raised. Plus, they receive 6 daily character stickers and have access to Boosterthon’s world-class character resources. Parents, you must register your student on in order for them to run. Just click the “Parent Permission Box.” Your student will receive a FREE gift just for registering.

Remember to enter your student’s pledges on FUNRUN.COM, a safe and secure website that also allows you to watch the character lessons students learn every day.  Remember to include sponsors’ email addresses so they can receive a pledge confirmation. NOTE: Online payment option is available.

How Can You Support Frostwood?

  • Connect your child to sponsors—friends & family—who can give a pledge.  (phone, e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, etc.)

Salad Bar is Back

Healthy Lifestyles Update

salad-barWe are excited to announce that the salad bar will be making a permanent appearance in the cafeteria very soon! So, mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 15!

We have made some changes since last Spring’s trial period, so the following is a short Q&A:

Q.  When will the salad bar be offered in the cafeteria?

A. The salad bar will be offered to ALL GRADES on Wednesdays and Fridays. The first official day of the salad bar will be Wednesday, October 15!

 Q. What is now offered with the salad bar?

A. There will be two sizes available: large for $4.00 and small for $2.50.  The base salad is only lettuce, and then after the child pays, he or she can choose from a wide range of fruits and vegetables as well as a choice of protein including chopped chicken, ham, turkey or cheese.

 Q. What kind of salad dressings will be served?

A. We will be offering a healthy selection of dressings including olive oil, red wine vinegar, balsamic vinaigrette and ranch.

 Q. Will there be anything else offered to round out the salad bar offering?

A. Yes! The child can supplement the salad with a bag of pretzels or comparable grain snack.

 Q. Are the salads pre-packaged or will my child have a choice as what to put on it?

A. The base salad just starts with lettuce – nothing more. Then after paying, the child can choose which toppings he or she would like to put on top. If your child does not care for a particular item or has dietary issues, he or she does not have to take that topping.

 Q. Can my child still enjoy a salad if he/she brought a lunch from home?

A. Yes, there will be a special exception made if a child wishes to replace or supplement their lunch from home with a salad in the cafeteria!

 Q. How is having a salad bar possible at Frostwood?

A. Through the amazing support of the District, Child Nutrition Services (CNS), Frostwood leadership and cafeteria staff, we are excited to bring this healthy option to Frostwood. In addition, the service associated with the salad bar is based on 100% volunteer support of Frostwood parents. Several men and women have gone through a necessary training and have dedicated themselves to this process to prep, serve and manage the salad bar each week. Thanks volunteers!!

Please contact Heather Burkhart ( or Shelley Jones ( with any questions or if you would like to be trained as a volunteer for this very important initiative!
