It's been a very busy start to the year, so to give us all time to catch our breath we've moved the date of Madrona's Annual Jog-a-Thon to Friday, October 18th (from the previous September date). The event takes place at Madrona Playfield (rain location: Madrona Gym). This is the PTSA’s biggest fundraiser of the year, and we hope to beat last year's $30,000 raise to support arts education, field trips, teacher stipends, mindfulness and so much more. Fundraising envelopes with instructions for setting up your student's online fundraising page will be going home next week.
Students will run laps for 15 min (K-1), 20 minutes (2-3), or 30 minutes (4-5). The class that runs the most laps and the class that raises the most money both win awesome prizes.
Volunteers are needed from 10am-2pm to set up the field, help teachers walk students from school to the park, count laps using electronic trackers, cheer students on, hand out snacks, and clean up at the end. Instructions to sign up are coming shortly.
