    May JOG-A-THON!

    The 6th Annual Leschi Elementary Jog-A-Thon fundraiser is Friday, May 19th. We will be set to cheer the Leschi students on as they run (or walk) as many laps as possible. Last year’s Jog-A-Thon was so much fun and we raised just over $20,000 to support our students, teachers, and school!Students will be encouraged to participate in a 15-minute run (or walk)that will take place on the Leschi playground.

    Students are encouraged to obtain sponsors to pledge money by the lap or for a set amount (“flat pledge”). Please help your student find sponsors by asking family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers for their support. Pledge envelopes came home last week; please be sure your child’s name and class number are clearly written in ink on the pledge envelope! The deadline to return pledged money is the end of May. Prizes will be awarded at the Jog-A-Thon awards assembly the following week.

    Calling all 4th graders!!! The money you raise will go towards paying for your 5th grade camp fee! You could go to camp at no cost to your family. Go tell potential sponsors that they can help send you to camp!!

    We need volunteers for the Jog-A-Thon…please consider giving your morning to us. It is a great way to be involved and watch all of the students have a great time while being active! All spectators are welcome — the more people cheering the runners, the more laps they run! We look forward to seeing and hearing you!
