UPDATED SCHEDULE DUE TO WEATHER
We've been keeping an eye on the weather for Friday as the Jog-a-thon draws closer. There is a large storm passing through Seattle Thursday afternoon and evening, with some lingering showers through Friday morning. But, the likelihood of showers decreases as the day passes. While we can't know exactly what the weather will be like, we've decided to move forward with the Jog-a-thon on a modified schedule for the morning.
8:00am - Volunteers arrive to help with setup
10:30 - 11:15 - Kindergarten - 2nd grade on the track
11:30 - 12:15 - 3rd grade - 6th grade on the track
12:30 - lunch (under covered play area)
2:00 - tear down and clean up
While this schedule is compressed compared to previous years Jog-a-thons, we believe it strikes the best balance of safety and fun on what is likely to be a damp morning.
We are excited for this year’s Jog-a-thon! This is the elementary school’s annual fundraising event to raise money for the school. Among other things, the annual fund is used to purchase elementary books and supplies. Here’s how it works: the elementary students collect pledges based on number of potential laps they can run in a 45 minute time frame. On May 5th they run like the wind! We tally laps and from there we have the students collect their pledge money for the school.
