You can feel the excitement in the air as the 1st JWE Jaguar Fitness Fun Run is right around the corner - next Friday, October 9th (Rain Date: October 16th). This new fundraising event for the JWE PTA will help complete Phase II of the Playground. Please remember that 100% of your donation goes directly to the JWE PTA and ALL donations are TAX DEDUCTIBLE!!! Your friends and family from out of town can easily donate! Follow the steps by step instructions below. A reminder that all donation forms are due back to the school on Monday, October 5th. We will help the kids fill in their laps run and complete the form for you (we will be sending the completed forms home on the following Monday along with a collection envelope). Please note that you can continue to get donations during this time all you need to do is enter those on the form when it is returned to you.
Check out the display case inside the front doors of the school as it will be updated next week with pictures of the NEW PLAYGROUND along with a Goal Tracker Chart to monitor our progress toward reaching the $50,000 needed to purchase and install the playground!
