CHRISTMAS 5K RUN
Dear St. Catharine’s School Parents:
As you may or may not know, last year we changed the run from Allaire State Park to St. Catharine’s School. We wanted more families/alumni to participate to run/walk and have a family day with Santa, activities, etc. This is our predominant fund raiser for the SCS Athletics program. The success of the fundraising event depends on our families. If your child/children participates on any of the teams you already understand the camaraderie our children experience and the pride they feel representing SCS.
You also know that if your child plays on a club team for a sport not offered at SCS, or does not gravitate towards sports, their pride intheir school and their friends is heightened by a strong athletic program.
That being said; please consider becoming a family sponsor, take an ad or volunteer and be part of the SCS Christmas 5K.
All of our coaches are volunteers and we are able to have almost 100% of our students participate in 1 sport or more.
The opportunity for our students to participate, play, improve their athletic skills, develop lasting friendship, learn teamwork and leadership is priceless.
Without you we would not be able to continue to grow and expand our Athletic program. Please come out and support the run. Thank you,
Ellen Meixsell Athletic Director
CHRISTMAS 5 K
We are 5 weeks away from our 2nd annual SCS Christmas 5K!!!The race is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 2nd. To add to the excitement, we would like to have a contest for the class with 100% registered runners/walkers. When registered, the student will sign their name on the paper that will be hung up on the cafeteria wall. I am sure everyone wants to see their name there!!!
The winning class will receive a PIZZA PARTY!!-
1 SLICE OF PIZAA/WATER/SWEET.
You must be registered by NOVEMBER 25TH. Remember, if you do not wish to run the race, you can also walk. Either way, it will be FUN!! Kick off the Christmas season with your SCS family! We can’t wait to see you on the course!
The SCS Christmas 5K Committee
