It's Jog-A-Thon/Color Run time again!
On Friday May 17th, elementary students will participate in the  Jog-A-Thon  and middle school students will have the opportunity to do the  Color Run !   

This is one of the students’ favorite events of the year! Students in grades K- 5 will collect pledges from family, friends, and neighbors, based on the number of laps they run on the blacktop in 20 minutes. Middle school students can donate minimum $25 to participate the Color Run. For more information on these two events, click on the web links above.

Fundraising Pledge Pages
We have provided each K-5 student with their own pledge web page to make fundraising easy for them and your friends and family! Students will use it to set a fundraising goal and those donating can use the website to make their pledge and payment - it is that easy. If you have not received your student's fundraising page email us at roycloudjogathon@gmail.com . The top 3 fundraising classrooms will get a prize, so login to see your student's pledge page, and start raising money!

And The Winner Is....
Congratulations to Mr. Coleman's classroom for winning our first Golden Sneaker award last week. By now many of you have learned how easy and healthy it is to ditch the car and walk to school. We'll start a new round of our friendly competition on Earth Day, April 24th, and our 'regular' Friday walking school bus day, April 26th. Join one of our established walking school bus routes  ( find them here ) and take another aim on winning a trophy for your classroom!
