Step It Up!

Dear Parents,

As you already know, our STEP IT UP! fundraiser got off to an amazing start, only to be temporarily stalled due to a server malfunction.

Our partners at Step It Up worked around the clock to get the issues fixed, and the platform is back and better than ever. The Step It Up website will restart today and will send reminders to your donors, just as it would have before our site went down. Our new turn in date for donations will be: Tuesday, September 24th during 1st period.

Don’t forget: Our students benefit from about 80% of every dollar donated during STEP IT UP in one of two ways: as direct profits to our school and in the form of rewards and incentives given to our students who help us raise money. And, of course, our amazing Day of Awesomeness! So, every donation makes a difference!

We apologize about the delay and any extra work this has caused you and your family. We appreciate your patience while we worked our way through this issue.

Thank you for making a difference at Marco Forster!
