Parent Announcement - Jog-a-thon

The Jog-a-thon is our school’s major fundraiser, so we need the parents & friends of our school to get involved and support our students!

What is a Jog-a-thon? The Jog-a-thon is our school's largest fundraiser in which families, friends, and neighbors pledge money to support the students as they participate in the Jog-a-thon. Each lap is tallied as students jog (or walk, skip, run, etc.) during a set time period. All students will participate as a part of their regular physical fitness program.

Why are we having a Jog-a-thon? Our PTA provides many fantastic programs for our students like Art, Assemblies, Family Nights, Lunch Time Activities, Reading Counts, World’s Fair, and more!  In order to continue providing these programs, our goal is to raise at least $30,000, but ANY donation is welcome!  If every child raises $50, we can reach our goal and more!  ALL of the money raised will go directly into PTA-sponsored programs that enrich our students’ experiences.

How do we raise money?  In the next few weeks, each student can obtain pledges in support of his/her Jog-a-thon efforts.  Pledges can be made as a one time donation, or on a per lap basis.  Please help your child collect pledges through your child’s webpage.  You can email family, relatives, friends, co-workers, etc. for support right from the webpage.  Posting on social media is another option!  No time to ask for pledges?  You can make a donation instead! Please keep in mind that we can meet our school goal if each child raises $50.

Online pledges with 99Pledges. In the coming days, you will receive an email with a link to your participant's pledge page. You do not need to login or change anything. Simply make a donation for whatever you can, and share your participant's link with friends and family. We are shooting for 100% participation so no amount is too small. 

If you do not receive the email for whatever reason, simply search and find your participant's online pledge page here: {{main campaign page}}
