Wacky Fun Run!
Verbiage for s’more: (include bulletin board and tracker update photos)
Wacky Fun Run is coming up on Friday! All envelopes are due Friday by 1pm to be counted for prizes!
This is the last week of our Wacky Fun Run fundraiser!!!!! With only 9% of students participating, we have jumped to 31% of our goal, which means we can do soooo much this last week if we all jump in with both feet! Ms Cayatte’s class is still in the lead for most money raised, and Mrs Bolton’s class is in the lead for most donations per student and highest percentage of class participating right now! Will they hold it til Friday? We shall see!
It’s not too late to sign up for a free donation site at www.Pledgestar.com/Altadena! This is the best way to get info out and support our school.
Friday is the big day, so come to school on time in your wackiest outfit (free dress day!) with good running shoes, and we’ll kick off after lunch, so don’t eat too much! Be ready to have fun! Make sure you bring your envelope to school on Friday if you have collected cash or check donations so they can be counted. Until then, keep taking your envelope with you to ask family, friends, or even the dentist if they’d like to support you! Parents are encouraged to take them to work as well.
We need volunteers for the big day and donations of snacks and water for the kids, so please sign up here to help: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0d45aeac22a75-wacky
