COLOR RUN - May 31st

For the Top 3 Classes that raise funds STP will celebrate with:

1st Place – Pizza Party

2nd Place – Popsicles

3rd Place – Lollipops

  • Fundraising ends – 5/2
  • All Students participate even if you don’t reach the $30 for the T-shirt and color packets!
  • Once the student raises the first $30, they bring the ticket in their packet to the office to get a lanyard with a SPLAT! There are additional splats earned at the $60, $90 and $150 levels.
  • Incentive packages from fundraising will be delivered prior to the event.
  • Also the biggest part of this is the event itself! On event day, students can bring sunglasses so the color does not get into their eyes. These will stay in backpacks until the time of the Run!
  • Students who have asthma or medical issues that cannot run or participate are still encouraged to come out and have some fun. Please contact STP and we can arrange something for them to do or make sure we have a special shirt so everyone knows not to get color on them.

Thanks to All from your STP co-chairs!
