Dash n’ Bash


It is time for Prospect School’s FIFTH Annual 

Dash n’ Bash 

Friday, Sept. 20th– 4:00-6:30pm – Prospect Park 


Let’s raise some cash! Lace up your sneakers and participate in Prospect School’s FIFTH annual Dash n’ Bash. A 1K dash will be followed by a not-to-be-missed bash. The Dash n’ Bash is Prospect’s PREMIER fundraising event, so we’re counting on a strong showing!  One hundred percent of proceeds will fund educational tools such as non-fiction text books and level specific reading materials, support for the new STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics) Lab for use by K – 5, enhancements to the art, music and PE programs, and the outdoor education program. In addition, your generous support helps fund our PTO clubs and events throughout the year so that all students can participate.

Who should dash?

All current Prospect School students, grades K-5. The Dash is not open to parents or siblings, but the kids love having all of the cheerleaders along the race course! 

Who should bash?

All Prospect School families, staff, neighbors and supporting sponsors! The big bash will feature: DJ, obstacle course, HUGE slide, inflatable pony races, a rock wall, lots of games, including high striker, boom blaster, Giant Plinko, and many more, and the always-popular Cake Walk. Plus, food catered from Firewater BBQ, Home Run Inn, and other local businesses.
