Get out that comfortable outfit tonight, and make sure the kids are well-hydrated and well-fed before they go to sleep tonight.
The Jogathon has become one of the main fundraisers for the PTA. Last year over $35,000 was raised! Our students collectively ran 11,332 laps -- approximately 1,206 miles -- in 50 minutes! Let’s beat those numbers this year!
Money raised through Jogathon pledges provides support for art, music, health and fitness, the library, classroom tutors, family fun nights and a whole lot more!
No pledge amount is too low or too high.
For families new to the school or for those who have not made it out to watch the fun, the Jogathon provides a whole lot of energy and excitement for everyone involved. Groups of volunteers and supporters join the kids as they challenge themselves and encourage each other to walk, skip and jog around the course.
We encourage and welcome everyone to come out and cheer, volunteer, or run a lap or two with the kids!

I've received some great questions on the snack and lunch allergies issue/question.
Here are a few answers and guidelines in general.
lunches - can I pack a PBJ in lunch or is the whole building on a no nuts protocol?
PBJ is fine! There is a nut-free table for kids with allergies. Some parents avoid packing nut or nut butters just as a courtesy since handwashing is kind of sporadic as the kids learn the routine, but getting your kid fed is important -- do what you need to do!
