This is the big week! This Saturday the 13th at noon we will run the 1.2 mile finish. All parents of runners should be looking for a letter with all the important information coming home Wed. or Thur. Both schools will wear the shirt provided by Running Fit on Saturday (Make sure to fill out emergency info. on back of race bib before attaching to shirt). Please try to arrive around 11:30 on race day(sometimes parking can be a challenge). Mr.Tapp
Great News, Both Long and DuVall numbers have taken off! Over the next 4 weeks our teams should be out preparing themselves to make the final 1.2 miles on race day. Between now and April 13th our martians should dedicate time to strengthen cardi-respiratory fitness by getting out and jogging building their endurance. A parent letter will come home the week of the race to provide all details needed for the race. Mr.Tapp
The sign up deadline has been extended to March 11th at 20$. See office secretaries to get sign up sheet. Both schools are short of the 25 students needed to receive our banner so if interested please sign up. Fun Day on April 13th. Mr.Tapp

All funding should be turned in no later than this Friday the 11th either online or through cash donations. All prizes will be ordered by the end of the day on Friday. If I have any of the characters remaining they will go on sale for 2$ next week with the proceeds going to The American Heart Association.
Both Long and DuVall reached our total jumps for each school jumping over 160,000 times. The fun of the event is now over but fundraising will continue until January 10th.

Your kids will be bringing home a money collection envelope along with a sticker and tattoo. The sticker and tattoo come to life if you download the app to your phone.
