The Jog-A-Thon is a FUN activity where each student will jog for 30 minutes (kindergarten for 20 minutes) to show support for our school. It is one of only two major fundraisers each year to raise money to improve our school facilities and programs! Proceeds help support many PSO programs–Art Lit, Carnival, Science Fair and other classroom support and activities. In honor of our 40th Anniversary, please support Mary Woodward and help us meet our goal of raising $40,000 at this year’s Jog-A-Thon!
New this year–Online Donations!
The PSO has teamed up with Get Movin’ Fundraising. In addition to cash and check donations, each student can create their own fundraising website. This allows them to accept credit/debit card donations from all over the world! We would like to encourage students to create a webpage to make it easier for friends and relatives to donate.
We Need All Parents to Complete 3 Easy Steps

- Email and/ or Text your child’s student fundraising webpage with 10-15 friends and family. It’s super easy!
