Fun Run & Safe Passage Information
Posted Sep 9, 2013, 10:15 PM by firstname.lastname@example.org
We have had a request for more detailed information about our upcoming events. Here it is:
The fun run will be on Sept 10 for A and B tracks and Sept. 19 for C and D tracks. The schedule looks like this:
AM Kindergarten: 8:35-9:10 am.
1st Grade: 9:10-9:45 am.
2nd Grade: 9:45-10:20 am.
3rd Grade: 10:20-10:55 am.

The kids will have 35 minutes to run laps in the field behind the school. The most they will run is 1 mile. They will be provided fruit and water when their time is up, or if they get tired before then.
WHAT THAT MEANS FOR YOU:
Students: Please wear tennis shoes and be prepared to run and have fun! Try to get as many donations as you can. Have them give you their money and you put it in the fun run envelope sent home last week. Bring the envelope to school and give it to your teacher as soon as you can. You will receive 10 box tops at the next box top store for every $25 you are able to get donated.
Parents: Please come and support your kids. You’re welcome to come to the field, give your kids high fives and cheer them on. You are welcome to bring your toddlers with you. We want this to be a fun event for the whole family. If you would be willing to help the PTA with this event, we could use some more help marking their laps. Also, please donate what you can since this is our fundraiser for the year.
We are looking for parents who are willing to be trained by the UPD to keep a closer eye out for our kids. After a background check you will receive an ID badge and a green vest labeled “safe passage.” Our school boundary is broken up into zones. We need at least 3 safe passage parents from each zone. You can be a parent that walks, bikes, or drives. We need all 3!
If you are willing to be trained, please come to a meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 8:30 am at the Tuscany Park, just North of our school. You can bring your toddlers and let them play at the park while we meet. We will also have refreshments.
