Thank you all for your support of the first JWE Jaguar Fun Run to raise funds for Phase II of the New Playground at John Wayland. I am excited to let you all know that as of today we have raised a total of $26,813.23!! We blew the $20,000 goal out of the water! This is amazing and would not have been possible without the support of the entire school, the kids, and you, the JWE Families.
We had 325 students collect and bring in money for the Fun Run, which is truly amazing.
To celebrate surpassing the $20,000 goal that Dr. B set I am excited to let you know that on the afternoon of Tuesday, November 24th, the kids will get to enjoy seeing Dr. B duct taped to the wall. We will also be having fun throwing pies at some of the teachers to help us celebrate this amazing achievement.
During this time of Thanksgiving, I want to sincerely "Thank" each and every one of you that made this possible. We had lots of volunteers that helped out from the conception of this idea, to the day of the event, to the past couple of weeks counting all the donations and tracking them to ensure that we are giving credit to all the kids. The support of the teachers have been wonderful as well creating Fun Run shirts for each grade level and shuffling all the paperwork back and forth (which was no small feat).
Thank you again for your continued support. We will be reaching out to area businesses sharing our exciting fundraising amounts and seeing if they too would like to help make this vision of completing Phase II of the Playground a reality!!
I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
With heart felt appreciation,
JWE PTA Fundraising Chair
