Thank you to every student and family member who supported the record-breaking Jog-a-thon! The #PennPTA and #TeamPenn was so impressed with the Penngrove Panthers school spirit, dedication to running, and creative fundraising. We wanted to share the statistics and winners of various categories with our community. As you can see, there is a lot to celebrate!
Before the break, every student received a coloring book and popsicle, 125 students received a raffle prize, 35 students received special Jog-a-thon lifeskill awards, and certificates were provided to the students and classes who ran the most laps or were top fundraisers. The goal was for every student to feel proud of their collective schoolwide accomplishment.
Thank you to the awesome group of volunteers who helped before the event creating swag bags and decorating the campus. Thank you to everyone who helped on the day of the event. Thank you to those who helped with the week before break's celebrations and who donated items for the student raffle. Jog-a-thon is a HUGE event! It takes the talents and time of many to make it all work.
The #PennPTA is diligently working on providing upcoming experiences and enrichments to campus life. Before the end of the calendar year, the students will enjoy a fun Animals of the Americas assembly, celebrate Red Ribbon Week with various activities, make memories at Halloween Parade, and have an opportunity to attend a free family fun night. All of those items (plus more!) are the result of the Jog-a-thon fundraising. Thank you all for making that happen!
