That title is quite a mouthful! After years of discussion, Wilson Elementary is changing our sole schoolwide fundraiser from the Math-A-Thon to the Jog-A-Thon! In addition, it is scheduled to take place in conjunction with this year’s Grandparents Day! In this way, family members will not only be able to contribute to our school’s future activities, but will also be able to cheer on the children of their family in the Jog-A-Thon!
On Tuesday, November 25th, the 4th/5th grade portion of the Jog-A-Thon will take place from 10:30-12:00 (a detailed schedule is below). Pledge sheets with attached collection envelopes have already gone home and the pledge envelopes are due Monday, November 24th. However, further pledges can be obtained until a December 3rd deadline. Green Grandparents Day invitations have also been sent home. If a grandparent is attending, the card must be returned by Friday, November 21st so that we have an estimate of persons on campus.
Thank you for your attendance and participation in this year’s events! This is our only true fundraiser during the year — let’s make it count!
