We are thrilled to participate in the FunRun this year! We are excited to raise money for our school, Sharpen the Saw by running together on Friday, and by building character and good habits through the daily FunRun videos. Thank you for supporting us! Don't forget to support our school and your child by asking friends and family to donate! The funds we raise will help us continue to improve our playground! So far, our class has earned $47 per lap! We are only $3 away from a class dance party, $13 away from extra recess, $23 away from Pajama Day, $33 away from movie day, and $43 away from a pizza party! We can do this, but we need your help!
