Lap-a-thon and Carnival


Student’s Name *AND*/ Grade:
Student’s Teacher

Friday, March 31 students and staff will participate in the Lap-a-thon to promote health, fitness and an active lifestyle. Donations will support our Physical Education (PE) programs and other PTO funded programs like technology, art in action, field trips, marine science, class supplies, and community events!

After school, from 2:40-4:40, we will be celebrating with a carnival!!! Join us right after school and bring your family to join in on the fun. Carnival tickets will be earned through participation in the Lap-A-Thon as well as raising donations. Tickets will be available to purchase during the carnival.

This year we’re seeking flat donations rather than pledges for numbers of laps run. Donations are due Friday, March 24 (a week before the event) to determine number of carnival tickets earned, in advance of the carnival. Of course we will still accept donations after the 24th, although it won’t be guaranteed that you will have your tickets in hand prior to the start of the carnival. Students are encouraged to have a lap goal and foster friendly competition with friends and classmates.

Lap-a- Thon, 8:30-12:30 on upper track

Carnival, 2:40-4:40 on blacktop
