The 10th annual Jog-A-Thon enjoyed a beautiful race day last Friday, as students ran their little hearts out around the track to represent their classroom’s country/region. To date, this generous community has already fundraised over $40,000, with over 350 students donating in some capacity. Once again, an all-school dance party is on the line as the school works toward the participation goal of 511 students, roughly 80 percent of BSE’s student body.
Individual classrooms are also working toward their own participation rewards. All classrooms who achieve 80% participation (donation at any level) earn a bingo party with popcorn. As of yesterday, both Kang’s and Henely’s classrooms have earned that reward, with several classrooms very, very close.
For those classrooms able to achieve 90% participation, that bingo party includes donuts and Bobby the Bobcat.
One very valuable member of the Bonny Slope community is our new mascot, Bobby the Bobcat. Bobby was all over the field–-running, hopping, dancing, and at one point, swimming as the kids trotted by. Bobby was beyond excited for his first Jog-a-thon experience, sharing, “As a JAT rookie, I can honestly say that I have some training to do before the next year if I have any hope of keeping pace with those kids! Man, they can RUN! Their hind legs hit the pavement and they ran their paws off.”
More than 82 parent and community volunteers donated their time on the day of the event. This ensured the Jog-A-Thon ran smoothly, kids had a fabulous time and, above all, were safe through the corners. Bobby adds, “It was a great event-–there’s nothing I like more than cheering on my BSE Bobcats–-especially when they’re supporting an awesome cause like BSCO!”
Parents still have two ways to continue the momentum and join the cause.
Head to http://pledgestar.com/bonnyslope and donate to your favorite little jogger.
Return cash or check (made out to BSCO) to the school office by Tuesday, 10/17. Lost your Jog-a-thon envelope? Return in any envelope and include the pledge sheet.
As a reminder, ANY AMOUNT DONATED COUNTS AS PARTICIPATION.
