Color Me Gator Run PTO Fundraiser

Remember to bring registration forms and payment to your crew leader! Students will have crew Wednesday, Wednesday, March 18th. We want as many colorful runners as possible to support our PTO Fundraiser!

Color Me Gator--Volunteers Needed!

MGM's 1st Color Me Gator Color Run will be April 22nd. You have hopefully seen the forms that have been sent home. This is a PTO fundraiser and will take the place of our Swamp Fest. We are really excited about this event and with your help we can make this an exciting event for the students and staff. We really need your help to make this Color Run the success we are expecting it to be.

This will be an all day event and there are a variety of things that you can help with.

Set up: 8:00 – 12:00 set up on the football field

This will include setting up the sound systems, large fans, filling up cups with the color powder. We will have 3 areas for the students during this event. An area for warm-ups, the Color Run (walk, skip or jump) and the party area where they will be able to throw their color powder packs.

The Color Run and Clean Up: 1:00 – 4:00

Each grade level has a designated time for their Color Run and Color Party. We will need volunteers to throw the color powder as the students move their way around the track.

Please let Kathy Campbell ( know what time you are available to help us with this event. We greatly appreciate all your support of the MGMS students in making this an exciting year.
