This popular annual event is the biggest fundraiser of the year. It helps keep our kids physically fit and our school financially fit. Funds from the Jog-a-thon go directly to support and enhance academic and cultural enrichment at Dailard.

Jog-a-thon Awards Assembly –March 24, 2017

Tracking Laps
Students are given visors that serves as lap markers. Each grade is assigned to a color zone where they will have their laps marked on their visors. Kindergartners and third graders wear blue; first and fourth graders wear red; second and fifth graders wear green. Water will be provided to participants during the Jog-a-thon and orange slices will be provided to them after they run.

Preparing for the Event
Students wear the color assigned to their grade and bring with them the money they have collected from people donating flat fees. Students who collected donations per lap have a few weeks more to turn in their money to be considered for prizes.

Schoolwide Goal
Something new this year. If we reach our schoolwide goal of $35,000, EVERY student will receive an official Dailard Jog-a-thon t-shirt!! On top of that, Ms. Fitzpatrick will be our DJ for the day and will play music at lunchtime! In previous years we have been able to reach and exceed our goal when we average at least an $80 donation per student. Please consider donating this amount so that we can not only reach our goal, but also give a t-shirt to every student.
