CONSIDERATION - "Consideration is the thoughtful concern for others."


Students can wear running/athletic attire based on guidelines for the Color Run Dress code

● Check-outs will be difficult so if you know you will need to on Friday, parents should check students out prior to the run….before 1pm.

● Students will NOT bring backpacks or chromebooks to school on the day of the Color Run. Students can bring a clear water bottle and cellphone in a small bag to school but they cannot use the cellphone during the Color Run. The color (cornstarch), water and potential for damage from a drop is too high. Students will take their belongings to their assigned field BEFORE the color run - Students WILL NOT go back in the building during or after the Color Run. The only exception is one restroom available during and after the Color Run.

● There will be ONE restroom available during the Color Run. Students/staff needing to use the restroom will enter and exit the doors by the cafeteria.

● Teachers will have a map of the Color Run route. Students that cannot participate due to medical reasons - these students will remain in the media center.

● We will have 2 nurses on duty during the Color Run.

● Color packets cannot be opened inside of the building before going outside.

● All color packets must be used.

● Do not forcefully throw powder at people's faces or on people who do not have on a Color Run or plain white t-shirt….it means they chose NOT to participate.

● It’s NOT a RACE….you should run or walk but keep it moving. Do NOT stop at color stations….keep it moving. If you don’t want color then run/walk around that color station.

● After the run, stay in the designated student area on the assigned fields.

● EVERYONE will need to pick up trash before we leave.

● If you ride carpool, you may want to have your parents cover their car seats.


PTO News

Color Run 2019:

We are excited that the Color Run is ON for Friday, 9/27! I hope everyone is ready and excited. Just a few reminders. The t-shirts for the runners will come home TODAY (Thursday 9/26). They are to be worn Friday. Please see the Color Run dress code shared with students by classroom teachers. The race will begin at 1:45 pm but we will begin marking the route by 12:30 pm.

Remember there are no check-outs between 1p-3p. The kids will be outside and on the roads. There will be limited access to the school because of the run. Please plan accordingly and check-out prior to 1pm, if necessary.

For the run, the students will receive a t-shirt and color packet along with any extras ordered. We encourage the students to bring sunglasses to wear, even just a cheap pair to keep the dust from flying in their eyes. They can also wear a bandanna or hat if they want to decrease the color in their hair.

A reminder for carpool parents. We encourage you to have a towel for your child(ren) to sit on to limit the color in your car. Carpool will stop before the first turn by the bus entrance until all students are back in the designated area. Please wait for our SRO to move the cones before you come to the carpool lanes.

Thank you again for all of your help with this fundraiser. This fundraiser could not be accomplished without the great support of our parents, staff, and community.

If you have any questions or if we may be of assistance to you please contact us at: jillandchad@me.com or sutterlin4@gmail.com (Color Run committee members).

Thanks for all you do! Go BUCS!!!!
