Fun Run Moved to October
We have moved our annual Fun Run to Oct. 5 this year in an effortto utilize the money this year. Thanks to the support of parents and
corporate sponsors, we raised $46,000 during last year’s Fun Run.
A portion of that money was used to purchase a mobile computerlab equipped with 30 laptops and a cart. The lab will rotate betweenclasses and allow students more technology time while at school.Our kickoff assembly is Sept. 14. Mark your calendars and plan to join us for our Fun Run next month!
