We had an amazing Fun Run on Friday!

All students worked so hard and had a great time on the field running and walking laps with their friends and teachers. Be sure to follow our Facebook page as we will be posting pictures from the fun run soon. They ran an impressive amount of laps and we are so proud of our Wildcat students! Total Laps Run: 8.590, Total Miles Run: 1,718, Average Laps per Student: 16.4, Average Miles per Student: 3.28.If your student didn’t bring home their run bib from Friday and you would like to know how many laps they ran, please email us. A huge thank you to all the volunteers who helped throughout the day on Friday to keep the fun run moving! We really couldn’t have done it without parents marking bibs, filling water, handing out popsicles and helping to record laps. Another huge thank you to all the parents who came out to run/walk with their children and to cheer them on. The kids really loved all that positive energy! Also thank you to the parents who spent hours taking photos of the kids running laps! To those parents who took photos on Friday, please email them to Jory Hastings for the school yearbook. If they are from your SmartPhone/iPhone, please send in their original size and don’t reduce size for emailing. Thank you! ALL donations are due THIS FRIDAY, September 15th in order to count for class and individual prizes. Parents and family members can donate with a flat donation, pay per lap, or a combination of both! Donations can be made by cash or check using the envelopes sent home in the packet or online using the link below. At this time, we are over halfway to our goal! We will have our fun run awards assembly on Wednesday, September 20th at 3:00 pm. Parents are welcome to attend! We will announce all individual and class winners at that time.
