What is the Jump-A-Thon??

You may have noticed our school funding has fallen over the past couple of years. Our PE program as well as our school could use some new supplies. We have decided that the best way to continue a great tradition of physical education and higher learning is to ask for your help.

We are looking to restock our PE equipment as well as buy some new equipment. In addition, our school has adopted a new movement program in the classroom and supplies will be needed for these programs. We will use some of the money to resupply essentials for our school that are separate from physical education.

Unlike the Jog-A-Thon the Jump-A-Thon will be held in PE during the week of February 21st thru February 24th. Each class will get the opportunity to jump and be apart of the celebration. Parents, the best way to help the Jump-A-Thon to be a success is go out with your child and help them raise money. Please remember this is NOT a door-to-door fundraiser so please DO NOT let your child go door to door. You may go to local businesses and ask them to make donations for this event. Money can be turned in the day of your child’s PE or it can be turned in no later than February 29th.

“Movement is a medicine for creating change in a person's physical, emotional, and mental states.” ~Carol Welch
