In the last twenty minutes of the school day on Thursday, La Mariposa kicked off our 12th Annual Rock N Run Jog-a-thon. Always a great time, the Jog-a-thon committee stepped it up for 2013 with a concert-style assembly complete with our own tiger teachers as performers. Amidst air guitars, bongos, and inflatable keyboards, students learned about all the great things Jog-a-thon funds support and what the donations they collect can get them. We also found out what Principal Williams will do if we reach our $45,000 goal.
Any donation made until October 18th will be counted for individual, class, and grade contest credit.
Individual Prizes for Donations Totaling:
$ 10 – Japanese Eraser
$ 50 – La Mariposa Notebook and Pen + all the above
