I’ve talked a lot about the fun I have at Jog-a-thon. Last year I told you about the Popsicle Party the PTA hosted for Amara’s class because they had raised the most money. Last year Amara was also the top fundraiser in the school. Guess what? Her class did it again this year and so did she! Her class raised $1308 for the PTA and Amara raised $427. The class was treated to a Popsicle Party and there was even a passing of the fund raising trophy from Amara’s 3rd grade teacher to her 4th grade teacher. I’m taking bets on whether her class will win it again next year! We need a three-peat!
This year in addition to the class that raised the most money having a Popsicle Party the PTA had planned a special event for about 35 students. It would include the top fundraiser for each grade and the student from each grade who had run the most laps. It was a special magic show and you had to have your special ticket to get in! Each student was treated to a fresh bag of popcorn, another Popsicle and a bottled water. Rumor has it the treats never made it to the curtain going up. Much like when I used to go to the movies. I always had my popcorn finished before the show ever started. I think it is so great that these students received a special reward for all their efforts. The PTA Rocks!
You can tell by the look on Amara’s face that she had fun!
