What is the Jog-a-Thon? Our annual PTA Jog-a-Thon is a ROCK-TACULAR fitness activity for all students to work together to raise funds for our school. Students will jog, or walk laps on the grass field at their own pace for about 20 minutes. There will be rocking music, plenty of H2O at the, and a refreshing TREAT at the end of the run for all students. Students should plan on wearing comfortable running shoes!
What’s the goal? Our goal is to raise $20,000. The Jog-a-thon is the biggest PTA fundraiser of the school year. Funds raised go directly toward: field trips buses, educational supplies and technology, playground equipment, special school events (Harvest Chili Cook-Off, Moon Festival, Chinese New Year, Winter Performance, Family Science Night, and more!)…All of which are enjoyed by each and every student. If everyone raises at least $50, we will achieve our goal!
All about donations: We hope every student will participate and bring in as many sponsors as possible! Donations may be collected from family, friends, neighbors, corporations…anyone who wants to help support our school.
What is a Matching Fund and how does it work? Many companies will match the donations made to a charity by their employee. Please ask sponsors if their company has a matching gift fund policy. If they do, please have your sponsor complete the company paperwork for matching funds and include it in this envelope.
Are there prizes? Yes! Special grand prizes will be awarded to the 3 students who raise the MOST money! Also, all classes that have 100% participation will receive a classroom prize. In addition, the top 3 classes with 100% participation to raise the MOST money will be awarded a SUPER special prize for the entire class! So encourage all of your classmates to get sponsors! (Note: donations from sponsors must be turned in by March 26 to be considered eligible).
