ForEverest for 4th and 5th grade students

All 4th and 5th grade Basswood students are welcome to participate in the ForEverest Training Challenge. This encourages healthy choices/exercise and it aligns with our Fuel Up to Play 60 focus. The Training Challenge helps students be prepared for the Climbing Challenge at Highland Hills on Sunday, May 19th at 2:30 PM. (This event is separate from the Training Challenge and participants pay a fee to compete. No students are expected or required to participate.) This event is a fun opportunity we are providing, but it is not required.

Please note:
The start time for Basswood Elementary will be 2:30 PM on May 19th

The discount codes expire on May 7.

District 279 Foundation partners with Kidstop (ISD 279 school-aged care program) to coordinate this healthy and social opportunity to advocate that reading is fun! Funds raised from this family friendly event will be allocated to media centers in Osseo Area Schools to purchase learning resources. The top two sites with the largest percentage of registered participants (based on site size) prior to the end of the school year (June 6) will receive a grant! Register today!
