Jog-a-thon Celebration Day is October 14th

We have set aside a whole day to celebrate our fundraising success. We would like to thank the students for running 911.6 miles in support of St. John, the families and friends who pledged their support and the volunteers who helped make the Jog-a-thon a fun and successful event. All of your efforts raised over $78,000 for the school’s operating budget to help pay for text books, technology and teacher assistants. Congratulations! Way to go Eagles!

JOG-A-THON  ASSEMBLY   8 :30-9 :00AM

We will  present certificates to the top boy and girl finishers in each grade, watch a slide show from the day of the Jog-a-thon and… draw  the winner of the  SPRINGFREE TRAMPOLINE !

SILLY STRING SHOWDOWN 9 :00-9 :30AM

The  4th  graders will take on  Ms. O’Leary and Senor Pablo with cans of Silly String – the reward for the grade that raised the most money  –  $9,490!

CASH  GRABBIN’ GECKO  – ALL  LUNCHES
