Are you excited yet? You should be! It’s Jog-a-thon season at Dailard. The prizes are big, and your chance to win them bigger than ever! Put new laces on your running shoes and start training, because Wednesday, February 25 is only a few weeks away!

Students and parents new to Dailard may wondering what it’s all about can find the complete explanation at the Jog-a-thon web page, but the short version is this:

  • Collect donations from family, friends, or sponsors,
  • run laps with your class,
  • win prizes,
  • everybody profits!

Students and parents who think they already know what the Jog-a-thon is all about are in for some surprises of their own… This year, students who bring in corporate or business sponsors–think your family dentist or your favorite restauranteur–earn towards their individual fundraising goal the money from this sponsorship. The Jog-a-thon Committee has put together a letter kids can use to solicit funds to help enterprising and ambitious students get started. If you have questions about this new program that weren’t answered during the Jog-a-thon Kick-off Assembly, ask the committee for more information: jogathon@dailard.org.

Money the DSF raises from the Jog-a-thon pays for a Dailard PE consultant for a year. This year, the DSF is also investing in the school computer lab, buying books for classroom libraries, paying for an art consultant, funding field trip buses, supplying teacher grants, and providing other academic and cultural enrichment to our students. We’re happy we have so many generous parents contributing and so many enthusiastic students participating! It’s a fun day, and we look forward to running by your side.

Thank you so much for your support.
