IB therefore I RUN
This year’s jog-a-thon was a significant fundraiser for Caleb Greenwood Elementary that includes all students. This was a fun and fit activity for K-6th graders to show their support and raise funds for our classrooms. Our goal is to support literacy by providing books for each classroom, building classroom libraries rich with both fiction and non-fiction selections that will excite our students about reading. We hoped that each family would participate in the jog-a-thon to the best of their ability. If each student raises at least $25 we would achieve our goal. Students had a chance to earn prizes from our generous community donors while also supporting their school. Although the goal of this event was to raise funds for literacy, we put the jog-a-thon together for three very important reasons:
- Promote the importance of physical fitness
- Build school spirit and pride
- Create a fun, memorable experience for our children
We delivered on all three!
Please be sure to visit our sponsors and thank them with your patronage. Thank you for your commitment to our school and support in making this year’s jog-a-than a great success!
Our school goal was $10,000 and we more than met our goal with $15,800 raised!
Thank you Michele Payne at firstname.lastname@example.org for all your hard work!
