Prizes: We are providing top finishers with medals this year instead of turkeys. Also, Menchie's is kindly donating a free yogurt coupon to all student participants.
Adult Runners: If adults want to win a medal, they must run and have their time recorded in one of the mile races. Extra name tag stickers will be available near the start line.
Volunteers: If you are interested in helping run this event, please email Mrs. Wray directly at Jill.Wray@santeesd.net
Due to conferences and minimum day schedule next week, all K-8 students will be dismissed at 1:05 each day. This will cause longer traffic lines. Arrive early and be patient.
Facial Piercings Reminder
Students with other facial piercings who are unable to use flesh-toned piercings or plugs will be asked to cover with bandaids during school.
We surpassed our goal of 300 members, so Mrs. Bradbury will be launched into space (the roof) on the 17th of November!
