Race for Education

Our Race for Education is coming! In January we will begin to prepare for our 8th annual Race for Education. This is our largest and most profitable fundraiser EVER! Last year we raised over $22,000 for our school. Our kick-off day will be January 17th however we need to begin with the end in mind and begin assembling packets for every student in our school.

On January 7th we are asking for volunteers to help us make preparations (stapling, filing, etc). If you can help us, please sign up via our sign up genius link:

IMPORTANT: You do NOT need clearances to help us do preparations for our Race for Education.  HOWEVER if you intend to help on Race Day (May 3rd) you WILL need your clearances. Please see a building secretary for information on how to obtain your clearances.
