The Jog-A-Thon - TURN IN THOSE PACKETS!

On Tuesday students participated in our 9th annual Jog-A-Thon. We are so proud of each and every one of them for running hard and doing their very best to raise money for our school.


PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD TURNS IN THEIR FUNDRAISING PACKETS BY TOMORROW, FRIDAY, 10/12.


The PTA would like to acknowledge the incredible job that Jog-A-Thon chair, Sarah Shah, did this year. Sarah put in countless hours to make this day possible. Thank you to all the committee members: Brenna Yard, Shondra Eames, Jessica Mussallam, Deborah Potts, Kate Sheehy, Catalina Kaltenbach, Jessica Valdez, Kelly Valera, Karen Miles, Kennon Fleischmann and Carrie Messner. They led a team of parent volunteers who kept the kids hydrated, marked laps, passed out fruit, they set up the event, led the kids in warm-up dances and cool-down and provided entertainment and encouragement for the runners.


Thank you to the day-of parent volunteers: Sandra Lopez Garcia, O'Meara Cover, Britt Galler, Sarah Drake, Ember Heuer, Leslie Buerger, Laura Barron, Jessica Scott, Nicole Pattison, Kathryn Shedrick, Di Di Stradiota, Pam Balland, Carol Donahue, Neil Smith, Robin Jensen, Korren Farkas, Camille Bossenbery, Cathy Epstein, Victoria Felix, Sarah Hornstein, Stacey Jennings, Jeanne Schroeder, Margo Tucker and to every parent who jumped in at the event.
