Friday, October 14 – Jog-a-thon and Half Day – One of the biggest fundraisers, and you get 100% towards your $850 fundraising goal! Each class has a class color, our is white. A flyer went home in the weekly envelope about purchasing a Gator Spirit T-shirt. We do wear our class colors a few times during the year, so this t-shirt will be worn. Students will earn money by having family members make pledges. More information will come home soon. The TKers will be running a smaller track, inside the school. We will need lots of volunteers on this day. There will be no hot lunch offered for this day, so please make sure you pack a lunch if your child is going to Gator.
