PTO Newsletter 9/5

Our 3rd annual Where the Wildcats Run Fun Run is this Friday, September 8th. Packets with donation envelopes went home last week. 100% of the money raised goes directly into our school and classrooms thanks to our amazing sponsors. We will be running “Meet Our Sponsors” blasts over the next two weeks so you can read about each one and how they are connected to WME.

Please send your child to school Friday with:

  • comfortable running/walking clothes and shoes
  • a full water bottle * sunscreen on *
  • sunglasses (if they would like them)

Parents are welcome and encouraged to come cheer or run with their student(s) during the day. Please stay clear of the start tunnel and finish lanes on the track. While the kids will be working hard running laps, it really is a fun day for the kids to hang with friends and teachers, and we make the day entertaining!

The schedule for each class on Friday is:

9:15 – 10:15 – Kindergarten
10:15 – 11:15 – 1st Grade
11:15 – 12:15 – 3rd Grade
12:45 – 1:45 – 4th Grade
1:45 – 2:45 – 5th Grade
2:45 – 3:45 – 2nd Grade

Parents and family members can donate with a flat donation, pay per lap after the run Friday, or a combination of both! All donations are due by Friday, September 15th in order to count for class and individual prizes. Every child will bring home their running bib marked with how many laps they completed!
