Fun Run Wrap Up

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. We are so proud of the Wildcat students!

Total Laps Run: 12,468
Total Miles Run: 2,493
Average Laps per Student: 22.6
Average Miles per Student: 4.5

All teachers recorded each students total laps from their bibs and turned numbers into the coordinators. Your child’s bib should have come home in their backpack on Friday but if you are uncertain of their total laps, please contact us and we will let you know what that final number was.

Thank You!

Thank you to all the parent volunteers who helped throughout the day on Friday to keep the Fun Run moving! We really couldn’t have done it without parents cheering, marking bibs, filling water and handing out otter pops and leis. And thank you to the parents who spent hours taking endless photos of the kids running laps! We have an amazing community of families and we are so grateful to have such great support!

ALL donations are due THIS FRIDAY, September 16 to be counted toward prizes and awards. Donations can be made by cash or check using the envelopes sent home with your fundraiser packet, or online at

At this time, we are over halfway to our goal, so get all those donations in by Friday! And congratulate your student on a job well done!! We will be posting some photos from the day on our PTO Facebook page to make sure you like our page!

We will have our wrap-up assembly on Wednesday, September 21 at 3:00 pm. Parents are welcome to attend! We will announce all prizes and trophies at that time. Donation prizes (emoji keychain and pennant) may arrive at a later day and be delivered to your student.

EPI Coordinator Needed

We need a parent volunteer to take over the role of EPI Coordinator this year. This person will coordinate supply lists with teachers and organize our orders with EPI for the next school year. Work begins in November for this role. Without this volunteer, we will not be able to offer supply kits to families for the coming school year. If you are interested in taking on this role, please contact Jory Hastings.
