IT’S JOG-A-THON WEEK! The school is buzzing with excitement as we all work hard to achieve our individual and school-wide goals. By the end of last week, we were within $100 of where we were the same time last year and we met our goal. We can do it again!
INSIDE INFO FOR PARENTS…. There will be a "paced" first lap for WALKERS and RUNNERS in their designated lanes to prevent tripping.
On the large track, there will be a line down the center to help separate the walkers and runners. Runners will be on the INSIDE of the track with a water and snack station on the INSIDE of the track. Walkers will be on the OUTSIDE of the track with a water and snack station on the OUTSIDE of the track by the UPPER FIELD. It is our hope that this will prevent accidents from people having to cross the track.
Of course, parents are welcome to run/walk with your children, just please help keep our students safe by reminding them to walk on the right and run on the left.
Students who have per lap pledges will have a bright green sticker on their lap card so that we can all encourage them!
All students are welcome to get fruit, pretzels and water at the stations provided.
There will be trash containers strategically located around the field. Please help deposit water cups and other trash into the containers to keep the track clean.

There are prizes for the top lap runners!

Top 3 boy and girl lap runners for each GRADE will receive a gift card good towards the purchase of sports apparel or equipment.
NOTE: To be eligible for a top lap runner prize, the student must have brought in pledges to show a sincere effort towards meeting his/her personal goal.
Pledges must be turned in by 4:00pm on Thursday to count towards grade and individual eligibility for a prize (including next Monday’s drawing). Any pledge received after this deadline is greatly appreciated and will help us reach our school wide goal!
