Marathon Information coming home today

K-8 School Marathon for Non-Public Education-Packet sent home TODAY!

Mark your calendar: SCHOOL MARATHON

Saturday, October 1st at 9:15 a.m.

Sanborn Park


Our goal this year is for EVERY student to bring in the required $300 fundraising amount for the Marathon. This is NEW this year! We have some fun prizes for the students to help us reach our goal of $44,500. We understand that this may not work for everyone, but we hope everyone will do their very best to help us reach our goal.


If we reach our goal: Mr. Ziebol has graciously agreed to having whipped cream pies thrown at him during a pep fest IF AND ONLY IF we reach our goal! The top pledge earner in each grade will have the honor of tossing a cream pie at Mr. Ziebol.


Why did we change the marathon amount required for Marathon? We would like to collect the required fundraising total in fall, if possible, so that we can use our read-a-thon funds for a new playground structure. The current structure is over 20 years old and we can not purchase parts anymore and it has served us well over the years. We will strat doing research for a new playground structure and begin fundraising. Our hope is that a new structure may be install next summer.

We use PledgeStar to collect Marathon pledges OR send in cash/checks

PledgeStar allows you to send emails to your family and friends and collect online donations. This is super easy to use. You can track your donations for your child on PledgeStar.
