Battle Banzai sponsorship opportunities Thursday, November 11, 2010
The staff, students, and parents of Battle Academy are making plans for their second annual fall festival, Battle Banzai – A Journey Through the Jungle on Main, Saturday, November 20, 2010, from 10am-3pm. A performance of the children’s play, Jungal Book, by Battle’s 3rd-5th graders will close out the festival from 3-4pm.
The success of this event will be credited largely to sponsors who lend their names and financial support to the event, underwriting the cost of equipment and activity rentals. By participating as a sponsor, sponsors receive extended exposure through Battle’s media campaigns and promotional efforts. For a small monetary donation, or the donation of merchandise or services for the event’s silent auction, sponsors will enjoy excellent exposure to this important target audience.
Battle Academy’s demographic reflects a population of 75% receiving free/reduced meals. The moneys raised as a result of this year’s fall festival serve to minimize the cost of educational field experiences, many times covering the complete cost for students who would otherwise be unable to participate.
In addition, instructional materials/resources that are necessary for creating hands-on, active, and engaging learning experiences are often at the expense of Battle’s classroom teachers who only receive $100 each year to cover such expenses. Battle wants to maximize student achievement by removing the costs of materials from the equation through funding generated by the Battle Banzai.
As a magnet school embracing the theme of multiple intelligences, the folks at Battle have witnessed the power of the arts to nurture the intelligences of their students as they learn alongside artists and explore the artistic processes through rigorous integrated instruction. Battle Banzai sponsorships can assist the school in achieving their goals for student achievement and the creation of life-long learners. This year, Battle’s goal is to raise $10,000.
