Trek for Tech! This Friday, March 22nd


Hi Eagles,

This Friday is our Trek for Tech running event! All money raised will be to purchase Technology and the top 3 fundraising classrooms will earn a pizza party! To make this event a success, we need your donation of 8 oz. water bottles. We also need moms, dads, grandparents, and caregivers to come out and support and cheer on our students, help with water stations, run alongside students, and give them high 5’s as they pass by.

Show your school spirit by wearing lots of green, bringing pom poms, or making signs!

Here is the schedule:

Running Times

  • Kindergarten & 1st grade: 9:00-9:25
  • 2nd & 3rd grade: 9:30-9:55
  • 4th, 5th & 6th grade: 10:00-10:30

Looking forward to seeing you on Friday!
