If you have been waiting, lazy, or just plain procrastinating on supporting our 2017 Jogathon...maybe figuring others will do enough for us to meet the $25,000 goal....

 

If you have already done "good enough" on getting donations but know you could send one more email or have your kids talk to those few other folks about making a donation....

 

NOW IS YOUR TIME TO BE A LONGFELLOW SUPERHERO!!!!

 

We need to kick it into gear to meet our schoolwide fundraising goal. THE REASON we can pay for the amazing PTO sponsored opportunities and resources at our school is because of your participation in these fundraisers.  One mom recently commented to me how easy it was. She registered her kid with a Get Movin' Crew account (3 minutes), sent out the donation page by email (2 minutes), and within 2 hours had received $100 in donations!

6 classes have met their fundraising goal ($750) - NICE WORK Van, Munguia, Baker, Talbi, Rodea, and Baker!! Can your class pass it's goal by Sunday??  Wondering how your class is doing? Click here

 

We need volunteers to help run the event! CLICK HERE and find a small job you can help with. We need a few more water station workers, very easy job you can do while your kid is running, and cheer them on. Also clean up! (Stay and help as long as you can)

 

PLEDGE ENVELOPES should be turned in tomorrow at school, or bring them to the event on Sunday. If you have people who have pledged "per lap", envelopes will be returned to you to collect next week after you know how many laps your kid(s) ran. 

 

If you are attending the Jogathon Sunday morning at Marston:

  • Parking will be available in the upper (northeast) dirt lot, entrance on Ute Dr. near the corner of Waco St. This will be the main entrance to the event.

  • There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd most laps run at each grade level, boys and girls! Every runner gets a T-shirt, bib number, and Longfellow Superhero cape!!
  • Breakfast burritos and tacos by Los Chuchy's. Snacks by 6th grade.
