Dearest St. Augustine Storm Community Members…

Is being stuck inside getting to you? Are you in need of some fun that does NOT involve logging into Google Classroom? How about a chance to win a Pandemic Prize Pack with some family fun gift cards?  You read that correctly. Our staff and community partners recognize the stress that distance learning has put on you and your family and they think you deserve a little treat for the efforts you are making to save lives and flatten the curve…all while trying to balance working from home and supporting our kids. We understand how difficult it has been so our staff, and community partners want to add a little fun to the days ahead and bring our community together while we are apart.

Each week; through Newswire; we will let you know the next week’s challenge, as well as who the winners were the previous week. The weekly contests will begin Monday morning and will close at Noon on the Friday of that week.

Once the challenge has been posted, all you need to do is take a picture or video and Tweet it out and tag @staugustinewcd or use the hashtag #SAUGfamilyfun.  If Twitter isn’t your thing, you can also email your picture or video to  One prize pack will be awarded to one winner in each of the following grade groups:  Kindergarten entries, Grades 1-3 entries, Grades 4-6 entries and Grade 7-8 entries.


PLAN your idea! Each week the contest will require you to co-ordinate with all the people in your household. Make sure everyone has a role and is included.

PARTICIPATE with enthusiasm! A winner from each division will be drawn at random; based on the families who participate. We aren’t looking for perfection. We want people to have fun with this!

POST your Creation! We are hoping we can have all of the entries into the contest posted on twitter @staugustinewcd using the hashtag #SAUGfamilyfun.  Be sure to let us know if you do not want your entry posted on Newswire.

Good luck and lets have some fun with this!
