THE DAY OF THE JOG-A-THON
The Jog-a-thon will be held during the school day on Friday, October 22nd. Each grade will be allotted 15 minutes to run as many laps as they can. Each lap is approximately 1/5 of a mile. Rich Hanna of Capital Road Race Management has graciously emceed the Jog-a-thon for years. He is back again! The event is a school wide favorite. The 6th graders will get to test their speed as we finish the day with the 6th Grade Fastest Lap event. This one lap race is always a crowd pleaser complete with trophies. If you have any questions about the Jog-a-thon, please reach out to Paige Brokaw and Becca Frazee at firstname.lastname@example.org THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
