Color Me Fun Run
Friday, October 5th, 2018
This is our annual jog-a-thon and our LARGEST fundraiser of the school year. Our goal this year is to raise $30,000! Pledge sheets will come home at Back to School Night on August 29, 2018. If you are unable to make Back to School Night, your child will bring home their pledge sheet on the first day of school. Even though this is a fundraiser, there are all kinds of fun and exciting prizes too!
- The top class from primary (K-3) and intermediate (4-6) that turns in the most pledge sheets by Wednesday, September 26th (with or without pledges) will receive a Donut Party
- Top lap runners for each classroom will get a medal and a picture in the yearbook with Mrs. McLain
- Each student who raises $150 or more will be invited to our Cosmic Bowling party at KingPins (formally Sunset Lanes) on Saturday, October 27th from 9-11am
- The top 10 students from grades K-3 and 4-6 who raise the most money will be chauffeured in a limousine and taken to Out of this World Pizza for lunch on Tuesday, October 23th
day of run:
- Every student will get their own Color Me Fun Run shirt
- Every student will receive a colored bracelet for each lap they run
- Every student will receive an 8 oz. Jamba Juice following their run
- There will be an all school assembly featuring Alex Zerbe featuring a 60 minute science show
2018 run schedule
Each group runs for 20 minutes. Families are welcome to come out and cheer on the kids while they run!
1st & 3rd Grade: 8:30-9:00

How it works...
Once you have your pledge sheet, work with your child to talk to family, friends, and neighbors to either sponsor them for a flat amount ($5 minimum) or for a per lap amount ($0.50 minimum). Pledge sheets are then returned to the school by Wednesday, September 26th. If you need a new pledge sheet, download it here. Each grade level will then have a time to run on Friday, October 5th and they will receive a bracelet for each lap they run. We will then tally them up and send pledge sheets back home with the total amount due. All money is due back by Wednesday, October 10th to be counted toward prize qualification.
