Falcon PTA Jog-a-Thon Fundraiser - $40,000 Met!

Thank you everyone for working hard to get to our $40,000 goal! We met it thanks to all of your generosity! Sunday night was the deadline for the class competitions and the top earners of each class. The top earners will get some extra "swag" to wear during the Jog-a-Thon Olympics on Friday!



We are still collecting pledges that will go toward the individual prizes until Nov. 12th so feel free to keep those pledges coming!


Here is the link for you to register your student(s) to begin online pledging:
https://pledgestar.com/falcon/

Cash and checks are also happily accepted. Please make checks payable to: "Fanning PTA"


Parents, we welcome you to come on campus to enjoy this event on Friday. There are two ways to participate below:


Volunteers:

We still need additional volunteers for the day of the event. Please sign up on the link below this section if you are interested in helping out. Volunteers must pre-register.


All parent volunteers must be vaccinated or provide a negative COVID-19 test within three days of any volunteer opportunity. Volunteers must wear a mask when volunteering on our school campus regardless of vaccination status. Volunteers who cannot agree to these expectations cannot volunteer.



Spectators:

Spectators will be allowed to watch the event in designated areas on the outside of the "track." Spectators will not need to go through the office to obtain badges and you do not need to sign up or pre-register. You do not need proof of vaccination nor negative COVID test. However, MASKS ARE REQUIRED WHILE YOU ARE ON CAMPUS (even outside!). Adherence to this policy is greatly appreciated. Spectators will not be allowed to have contact with the students.


Schedule: Friday, Nov. 5th

9:00-9:20 - Grades 4-6

9:35-9:55 - Grades 1-3

11:15-11:35 - TK and Kindergarten

Sign up below to help during our Jog-a-Thon Olympics!
