St. John School Jog-a-thon presented by Atlas Construction Specialties
Students worked hard last week at the 9th annual St. John School Jog-a-thon! Congratulations, parents, students, and volunteers on a job well done! Fundraising ends tomorrow, October 1, and we’re aiming for 100% participation. Currently, the total amount raised is over $105,000!  Thank you St. John community for your generous donations. Visit our 99Pledges homepage if you would like to make a donation or view the latest standings.

Jog-a-thon Celebration Day will be on Thursday, October 14. There are several prizes up for grabs:

  • Springfree Trampoline – Back again this year!  For every $200 raised per family, your family name will be added to a raffle to win a Springfree Trampoline. Increase your odds of winning:  your family will earn an additional raffle entry for every $50 donation beyond $200. Turn in your donations by October 1. Drawing will be held on October 14. Thank you, Springfree Trampoline!
  • Punish the Principals – Back by popular demand, the GRADE that raises the most money by October 1 will get to punish Principal O’Leary and Assistant Principal Kelley with water balloons on Jog-a-thon Celebration Day!  Third grade is in the lead, followed by 7th grade and 1st grade!
  • Cash Grabbin’ Gecko – Families with over $300 in donations by October 1 qualify students to participate in the popular Cash Grabbin’ Gecko game on October 14.
  • Free Dress Day –  You have earned a free dress day for exceeding our fundraising goal of $80,000!  Free dress for the school will be on Jog-a-thon Celebration Day, Thursday, October 14.
