WEEK THREE NEWS! Fundraiser Kickoff It's FUN RUN time!

FUN RUN kickoff was this week! This is our first fundraiser for the year and the actual run will take place on September 7th. Information came home with your child this week and more information will be shared through newsletters, flyers, social media and a parent classroom email. Now is the time to begin asking for a one time donation or a pledge $$ per lap. Please know that all of the money raised during FUN RUN stays within the school to better improve our STEM program. The best part about it is we are NOT selling anything!!! No cookies, no wrapping paper, no coupon cards, just running! LOTS and LOTS of Parent Volunteers are needed for this event. You will be able to volunteer and watch your child participate in the run. There are indoor and outdoor tasks needing to be performed that day in order to make this event a success. Each classroom lead parent will be in contact with the class for FUN RUN volunteer opportunities. Let's have FUN and RUN!


** Please note, there will be a PTO Parent volunteer meeting at 8:00 in the cafeteria on the morning of FUN RUN (9/7).
