Last year the PTC was successful in raising almost $35,000.00 to enhance our students’ learning experience and directly support NECS classrooms. The PTC minimizes the ‘ask’ of parents, by holding a couple of large, focused fundraisers throughout the year, and spending more of our time giving back!

Annual Knights Color Run
1st Annual Color Run Raised over $32,000!
Thank you to all who participated! What an incredible event for our Knights and fundraising for our school. This event raised 95% of the PTC yearly budget. We couldn't have done it without all our incredible volunteers and support from the Newcastle Staff. Leading up to the run, students ask for sponsorships from friends, family, and businesses for their participation.
We choose to throw thank you events throughout the year that are free to our Knights family and focus our fundraising on one yearly event.
Thank you for your continued support; we couldn't do it without you.
see you April 2023 for our 2nd Annual Color Run
The Giving Campaign is a simple and straightforward fundraiser in which families simply donate directly to the PTC without any further obligation to sell, buy, or participate! Donations can be made anytime throughout the year, however, there are a couple of targeted giving dates that will be promoted.
Donations can be made by check or cash and given to your child’s teacher, or on this website by clicking the "Donate" Icon on the header or footer of each page.
The PTC counts on the generosity of many local businesses for financial support. Last year alone, business sponsorships for the Color Run totaled over $3,000.00, along with valuable non-monetary donations of products and services. Businesses can choose from various sponsorship levels, all offering business promotions to NECS families. With the use of year-round social media posts for our sponsors. In addition, a spot on our website for one year. NECS families are encouraged to use sponsoring businesses when in need of goods or services.

The Annual Obstacle Fun Run
The 2019 Fun Run Raised over $30,000!
Thank you to all who participated! The PTC has found this fundraising event to be not only lucrative but community building within our school as it involves the participation of the entire student body. Leading up to the Fun Run, students procure sponsorships from friends, family, and businesses for their participation in an Obstacle Course. Held on lower campus during the school day, class-by-class students run the course that includes inflatables, tires, tubes, and more.
As far as event-based fundraisers go, the Fun Run has a lower cost of operations and fewer man-hours required than fundraisers such as dinner auctions and carnivals, but more importantly, students experience involvement and achievement.
