FUN RUN IS COMING UP ON FRIDAY, SEPT. 7th!

Donation collection has started for our school and there are many prizes to be awarded. Donors may also visit our school website https://ues.sumnerschools.org/index.php/news and click on the Fun Run photo that pops up during the slideshow at the top of our home page and donate directly to our school. More Fun Run information will be shared through newsletters, flyers, social media and a parent classroom email. Now is the time to begin asking for a one time donation or a pledge $$ per lap. Please know that all of the money raised during FUN RUN stays within the school to better improve our STEM program. The best part about it is we are NOT selling anything!!! LOTS and LOTS of Parent Volunteers are needed for this event. You will be able to volunteer and watch your child participate in the run. There are indoor and outdoor tasks needing to be performed that day in order to make this event a success. Each classroom lead parent will be in contact with the class for FUN RUN volunteer opportunities. Let's have FUN and RUN!

** The link to make a donation directly to our school is below.

** Please note, there will be a PTO Parent volunteer meeting at 8:00 in the cafeteria on the morning of FUN RUN (9/7).
