                      Boostherthon Fun Run Friday, May 18
Get ready to be boosterized! Friday May 18, our students will be participating in our annual Fun Run to help raise money for the
school. What is the Fun Run? It’s simple… students get pledges from friends and relatives for the amount of laps they run/walk
around the Boostherthon track. The money raised will be used to purchase technology, classroom carpets, and instructional books
for the school. All students will get to participate in the Fun Run and receive a Boostherthon t-shirt. Teachers will receive 10% of
the funds their class raises and students will receive prizes. Not only do students have a fun healthy experience; the Boostherthon
Team visits the classroom daily to share character traits around the theme Epic Adventure. Pledge information will come home on
May 8, after the Boostherthon Pep Rally. For more information visit
