Happy Counselor's Day Mrs. V!

We are so lucky to have such an amazing counselor. We hope you had a great day!

Fun Run!!!! March 1st!


This year’s main fundraiser is the FUN RUN!

Hosting a Fun Run means there is no selling or delivering products. Once our program begins on PEP RALLY on the 18th, family and friends anywhere in the world can support our school by giving pledges toward the number of laps your students will run on the day of the Fun Run: MARCH 1ST.

Our Fun Run will be powered by the Boosterthon Fun Run, a fun organization that organizes Fun Runs all over the country. This year 2,900 schools like ours will run their fun run through Boosterthon. We’re excited for their expertise and making this EASY on everyone involved—including you!

Our Fun Run also comes with a world-class character theme. This year’s theme is MINDSPARK MYSTERY LAB, combining S.T.E.A.M skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building. While they're teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to solve mysteries, our students will learn five 21st-century character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.

Through this year’s Fun Run, our school goal is to raise 20,000 for for more chrome carts and ipad carts. Teachers, we need YOUR help!

Teacher Action Steps during the program:

1. Check, daily

2. Email your parents, daily

3. Promote pledging, daily

You will learn more at the Teacher Meeting on TEACHER MEETING February 12th, 3:15 in the libraryPlease bring your computers or phones to log on .

Let us know if you have any questions. We look forward to a fantastic program!
