Our Jog-A-Thon is happening on Thursday, November 9th!  The goal of this event is physical activity, school spirit, and fun-draising!  

We are using 99Pledges for online fundraising! Each student received an email from 99Pledges with a link to their personal online fundraising page. This page can be posted to Facebook, or forwarded to friends and family.  

The Jog-A-Thon is such a fun community PFC fundraiser - We encourage everyone to be involved! Motivate your student to prepare to run, jog or walk and try to raise over $100 in pledges.
