Announcements

  • From the Flight Deck:   February 8, 2016


    Jog-a-thon Total as of 1:00 p.m. February 5: $9,500 Goal: $25,000
    And They’re Off!—It’s the 2nd Annual Jacobson Jog-a-thon Fundraiser!!

    Jacobson Jets…On your mark, get set, LEAP into a healthy lifestyle these next four weeks through our 2nd Annual Jacobson Jog-a-thon Fundraiser! By organizing this spectacular event ourselves, we'll be able to keep 100% of the PROCEEDS on OUR CAMPUS!! The Jog-a-Thon is Jacobson’s largest fundraiser. Last year, we raised $22,000 and that money went directly into the classrooms with the addition of 60 laptop computers and two portable charging stations! This year, the goal is $25,000, which the PTO would like to use to make some enhancements to the campus, possibly including shade structures at drop-off and playground improvements. Additionally, 10% (up to $2,500 total for the school) will be given to each classroom teacher for the purchase of books and supplies.

    Your child brought home a packet with information about how this fundraiser works. Similar to the Check-a-Thon, donations may be made by cash, check made out to Jacobson PTO, or PayPal. PLEASE REMEMBER: When making a PayPal donation, include the student’s name, the teacher’s name and the grade so that your child and classroom will receive the credit.

    For the month of February, students should wear their best workout or sports team gear on Mondays, concluding with the big Jog-a-thon & Health Fair on Monday, February 29th! During these next four weeks your Jet will be participating in various activities and events focusing on good food, positive fitness and healthy lifestyle choices.

    Thank you so much for making Monday’s kick-off a great success, Amanda Dannenfeldt, Jenn Pickles and the Jacobson PTO

  • Jacobson Jog-a-thon 2016
    On Your Mark, Get Set, LEAP Into a Healthy Lifestyle!

    • Purpose - The purpose of this year’s 2016 Jacobson Jog-a-thon fundraiser is to encourage and motivate our students to make healthy choices with fitness, food and lifestyle while raising & keeping 100% of the funds on our campus!
    • How will this be accomplished? Between 2/1-2/29 we will be having both a fundraising and health awareness phase. Additionally, during the entire 4 weeks there will be fun activities such as: Jammin Minute Mondays, Fun Friday events, daily health announcements and a door decorating contest just to name a few! Here is also a little more information about the two phases.
    • Phase #1 Fundraising - On Monday, February 1st the students will begin the fundraising phase of collecting donations to support our school. From February 1st – 12th the students will reach out to family, friends and neighbors to raise FLAT FEE donations for our Jog-a-thon. Throughout these two weeks we will have fun classroom competitions and surprise PTO incentives to motivate both the students and teachers.
    • Phase #2 Healthy Choices – On Monday, February 15th the students will begin completing their “Take a Hike to Good Health” charts. The students will complete these charts by making a healthy choice and documenting it on the back. For example, taking a walk, playing outside, choosing water not soda, eating fruits & veggies, etc. Some steps require a parent/guardian initial, which is similar to the read-a-thon chart. During these two weeks the students will earn a keychain and charms to attach as their incentives.
    • Main Event - On Monday, February 29th every student will participate in the Jog-a-thon and health fair! The event runs 8:30am-3pm with each grade attending at a designated time. The students will spend 25 minutes jogging around a ¼ mile loop and then another 20 minutes enjoying a healthy snack and health fair. The health fair provides students, teachers and our school community an opportunity to get freebies and information from various companies to help make healthy lifestyle choices! Family and friends -- come and support your Jets!
