Wow, what a fantastic Jog-a-Thon this year!! The PTA and Jog-a-Thon committee truly appreciate all your support and assistance to make it such a great event!
Not only did we raise over $33,000 for our school but we also saw many parents getting to know each other and working together the morning of the event and afterwards while we were all cleaning up. We might have hit a record high of volunteer numbers for the Jog-a-Thon. The team was done setting up in no time and the field looked wonderful for our runners!!
Special thanks goes out to Carolyn Chung, Jessica Marshall, Lynn Sertich, Emy Deutsch, Vanessa Cheng, Mark Thompson, Carin Guertin, Tiffany Ramirez and Jamilah Nahas for their tremendous support in the weeks leading up to the event.
Raffle prizes were distributed to the many winners and though we would have liked to do the raffle live, it is hard enough to see the disappointed faces of the kiddos we do get to see pick up their prize. Let’s be honest, they tend to all want the Disneyland tickets, the KindleFires, or the iTunes gift cards. A small team printed raffle tickets for each student (one ticket for each $50 donated). The team then pulled random tickets for each prize in the MPR.
Thank you again for all your donations, support, help, and commitment to your child’s school!
As of today, more than 50% of all students have contributed to the Jog-a-Thon!! Way to go Eastshore!!
Mrs Goheen and Mrs Shapiro are being silly stringed!! And Mr Tobenkin’s and Mrs Naramore’s class are just $20 from the silly string goal!!
Thank you, thank you to everyone who has donated so far!!! We are so close to reaching our goal!!! We currently have Mrs Goheen being silly stringed by her entire class of fabulous 6th graders! We’d love to add a few more teachers to the fun and several are so close!
There is still time to collect donations and bring in the envelope on Monday or Tuesday and you can always donate online!
There is a chance of rain on Wednesday and we are keeping a close eye on weather reports. Please stay tuned! Our backup date is Wednesday, March 29th.
A HUGE thank you to all the families that have contributed to our Jog-a-Thon already!! We went from about 90 students, whose families had given by this weekend, to 230 students as of this morning (3/9)! WOW!!
We would love to see 100% participation!! Mr Tobenkin’s class is leading with 67% participation; that’s 22 students out of the total of 33 have brought in some amount to contribute to their school. This money will ensure that the PTA can keep funding additional academic programs for the students, community building events for the whole family, media and technology advancements for the whole school, and support all around.
13 days to go till our Jog-a-Thon! Plenty of time to reach our goal and get some teachers silly-stringed!
