Just 2 weeks until Longfellow's 2017 Superhero Jogathon!
Sat, Oct 7 4:42pm
Longfellow

Read on for everything you need to know about our biggest fundraiser of the year, which always proves to be a FUNraiser indeed! DID ANYONE SEE WONDER WOMAN at this week's morning assembly?? There is a rumor that if we meet our fundraising goal for this event, we will see Batman or Captain America running with us at the Jogathon! 

 

Important actions to take at this time:

  • Make sure you register your kid(s) with an online donation page (click HERE), then SHARE it by email, Facebook, etc. and watch the donations start rolling in. The money raised allows us to continue funding the essential programs we have come to know and love at Longfellow such as field trips, Art Corps, educational software, community events, etc. etc. Of course you can also be collecting your donations in person with cash or check. Jogathon pledge envelopes with cash/checks must be turned in at school by Friday, Oct. 20 or at the event. 

 

  • If you plan to attend the Jogathon event Sunday morning, Oct. 22 at Marston Middle School PLEASE RSVP BY CLICKING HERE to let us know who will attend and what shirt sizes you need. This is necessary so that we can make an accurate order for T-shirts, runner bibs, capes, etc. Minimum of $25 raised for each person participating in the Jogathon ensures you a registration to run/walk and an official 2017 "Stronger Together" Superhero Jogathon T-shirt. 

Come join the Longfellow community for a very fun event! Students, parents, teachers, alumni, friends, family...they can all come out for this!

Why we run....
 
There is a running community at Longfellow that comes to our annual Jogathon purely for the athletic event. This is a healthy and fun way to hold a fundraiser (healthier than selling candy bars!) Each year we award the 'top runner' of each grade with a medal ceremony at the end. 
 
THIS YEAR WE WILL BE AWARDING THE TOP THREE RUNNERS FROM EACH GRADE (both boys and girls) to receive an award. Register now to come run! Your child could be our next TOP RUNNER! :)
 
Proposed event schedule:
  • Starting at 8:15 - Event registration, get there early to beat the lines
  • 9:00 - Kindergarten through 3rd run - 20 minutes
  • 10:00 - 4th through Middle School run - 20 minutes

(Parents, alumni and non Longfellow siblings can register and run with their student(s) during their designated time)

  • 10:30 - 'Late Run' for any families who cannot make the earlier times and still want to run their laps. Please note that medals will only be awarded for the students who run during their designated grade level run times.
  • 11:00 - Awards ceremony, clean up

Los Chuchy's will be selling breakfast burritos and tacos at the event. As well, we will have snacks and Longfellow merchandise available for purchase. 

 
The Jogathon is 100% volunteer run. If you can sign up to help in some way the day of the event (even to bring a pop-up shade) please do so at the Konstella volunteer sign up:
