We did it!
Thank-you for your Support for the 2017 Fun Run-a-thon
We had such a great time running last Friday and are so grateful for all the effort and enthusiasm from students, teachers and supporters to make this fundraiser/ event a success. Together, we raised a gross total of about $21,200, not counting our community sponsors. After expenses, we will have netted about $18,000 to $20,000 for our general PTA fund that will go to school programs and materials. Great work, everyone!
Some figures if you’re interested: 100% of our student body participated in the kick-off and run and will get a closing treat Friday 10/12. 56% of our students registered and 38% collected a total of 584 pledges. 142 students met their goals and there were 51 student pledge superheroes.
Special shout-outs go to top of grades Erick Cohen, Jaxson Nuzzo, Joshua Yong, Luca O’Brien, Olivia Liley, Lily Barros, Alec Puzak, Evan Eadie, and Dylan Lincoln and their families. Erick Cohen is again our grand prize winner, raising an incredible $1,400 this year, doubling his own record last year. Wow! Please tell these students congratulations when you see them! A special congrats also goes to Teams 6th, Ferjancic, Montano, Johnson, Waldeck, Zirulnik, and Schelton, all of whom met their classroom goals!
A big thank you and shout out to all of our teachers and staff, students and their families, our supporting sponsors and donors, Fun Run-a-thon committee members, the many volunteers who helped out on our event days, and the many, many people who gave pledges in support of our school. A special thanks also goes to our amazing PE teachers, Jenn Arlin and Jason Paul. Thank-you!
Top prizes will be given on Friday, October 13th, and any others will be distributed to teachers the following week. Keep running, Dust Devils!
