Opportunities to help!

Color Run (Fall)

Kids get the opportunity to be active, plus get an explosion of color all over their hair and clothes. Perfect for middle schoolers!  Participants receive lunch and a Color Run T-shirt.  This school-wide run is held on a half day.

Hoop It Up (Spring)

A school wide basketball tournament (plus dunk + half-court shot contest)!  Kids put together their own teams, get super creative with wacky team names/themes/costumes and take each other on in a two-hour, 4-on-4 basketball tournament.  Students get to play, ref and cheer. The winners are challenged by the Downing Middle School Athletics staff in a battle to the finish!

Recycle Event Fundraiser

You clean out the garage, our volunteer helpers work hard to turn those items into cash for our PTA. It’s a win-win! Check out the event list of eligible items (tons!).
