Ninja Run Flyer

A fun and exciting team-building event for all NWR students

The North Windy Ridge PTO is sponsoring a fun event for all students to raise funds in support of our school.

Why are we Raising Money?

Quite simply, because we want the best for the students of North Windy Ridge Intermediate School.

About this fundraiser:

North Windy Ridge is a place where student learning thrives and provides a welcoming environment for all. We believe that this is because of the incredible students that attend our school, the awesome staff who believe that relationships with students are key to optimal learning and more importantly the incredible support of our families. We could not engage in the wonderful learning opportunities and the fun things we do here without your monetary support. 

Your ongoing backing and support are both truly appreciated.

Your donations will help pay for:

  • Teacher Supplies

  • Campus Improvements

  • Rewards for Good Behavior

  • Student Clubs

  • Mini-Grants/Wish Lists for Classrooms

  • Staff Appreciation Events

About the Course

This year the course includes

  • Hill climb 

  • Army crawl

  • Hiking trail 

  • Agility weave

  • Agility tires 

  • Wall climb

  • Tire pull 

  • Dance Party at Finish

Students participate as a class, along with their teachers, and they love it! The Ninja Course is for students of all abilities.

Each obstacle will have an alternative activity (such as jumping jacks) that students may choose to do. We are reinforcing our H.A.W.K.S. character traits with this event. Cheering on classmates and giving a helping hand are just as valuable as completing the obstacles.
Teamwork is a must!
