The following announcements were made this morning at our Jog-A-Thon update assembly:
FIVE more  RAFFLE TICKETS  will be drawn next Monday (10/23) for a $25 Visa gift card.
As an incentive for this week, the GRADES that have everyone bring in at least one pledge by 11:30am on Friday, Oct 20 ($1.00 minimum) will get a Gatorade at lunch on Monday (10/23), following the wrap up assembly. 
REMEMBER:  The GRADE that raises THE MOST MONEY during the entire Jog-A-Thon campaign will win a party at the school, complete with Jimmy John's, a movie and yummy treat.

Jog-A-Thon Reminders
  • Parents, siblings and grandparents, etc. are welcome to attend the JAT as spectators, or to run/walk with their student(s).

Jog-A-Thon Dress Code
Students should wear their Jog-A-Thon t-shirt, along with comfortable exercise bottoms & running shoes. T-shirts will be sent home with students early this week.
  • If your student chooses to wear running shorts that are shorter than 3" above the knee, running tights must be worn underneath.
  • If your student would like to wear running tights/leggings, athletic shorts must be worn over the top.
  • Tutus, Costumes, boas and any other dress up/silly dress items are not permitted.

School Dismissal after the JAT:
At the conclusion of the Jog-A-Thon, all students should return to their homeroom teacher at their lap count chute on the track. Lap cards will be collected from students at that time and parents that wish to take their student home may check their student out from homeroom teachers and leave from the track. Please do not leave with your student before checking in with homeroom teachers. All students not released from the track can be picked up at their normal front or back lot location. Students should not bring a backpack to school on Friday, and 7th & 8th grade students should also leave their Chromebooks at home.
