The 2014 Jogathon will be on Friday, May 2, from 9 a.m. to noon. Last year, this event raised just under $10,000 for our school. As you probably know, the PTO provides a large part of the funding needed to keep paraprofessionals in all of our classrooms and the money raised in this event goes a long way towards that goal.
Even better is the fact that the kids love this event, which allows them to get outside and spend part of their morning running around Benedict Fountain Park with their classmates and teachers to music and much fanfare.
Parents can support the fundraising efforts by making a contribution and/or assisting your child to ask friends, neighbors, grandparents and other relatives to sponsor them. You will find a letter about the event in your child’s Thursday folder this week along with their sponsor forms. Please mark your calendars and come cheer your athlete on!
