PTSO Bally Color Run--THIS FRIDAY

It's time to set up your pledge page and get your donations flowing in. The goal is $100 raised per student, but students need only raise $5 to participate.


Every student receives a free white t-shirt compliments of Fischer Homes that they can get dusted with color as they complete laps around the building.


We will have Kona on site (because if you spill...who's going to know? Your shirt will already be a colorful mess). Top donors receive Kona and it's available to purchase for everyone else.


We'll round out the fun with a tug-o-war contest within the grade and then top per grade competing for tug--o-war 2019 champ in 6th vs. 7th vs. 8th!!
