Boosterthon-  This is the PTO's giant fundraiser this year.  Students collect pledges based on the number of laps (30-35 max) they can run around the gym.  If someone would like to simply make a donation, that is great!  After the run, students return to the people that made a pledge to collect.  A paper to keep track of pledges and to collect donations will be coming home today.  The FUN RUN is scheduled for Thursday, January 25th.  Students will need to wear their blue Spartan shirt they received about a month ago with the white squares on the back the day of the FUN RUN.  Any questions, please do not hesitate to email me or contact the PTO.
