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
