Dear Wines Families. Here is the news for the week!
Last Friday was another FANTASTIC Run-a-Thon success. The kids had a great time, the weather was perfect, and everything went off without a hitch. I want to extend a thank you to all of our volunteers who made the day possible. I want to give a special HUGE thank you to Katie Fife who organized this year’s event. We had a sudden leadership change for the Run-a-Thon this fall and we needed a new point person. Katie has been involved with Run-a-Thon for a number of years taking on the incredibly challenging job of getting the t-shirts produced and distributed (a monumental task). This year, Katie stepped up in pinch and took the entire event on (and still handled the shirts!). THANK YOU Katie!
WE NEED YOUR RUN-A-THON PLEDGES
While the event is behind us, we are still actively collecting Run-a-Thon pledges. We want EVERY student to collect something. Any amount helps. The Run-a-Thon pledge packet went home a couple weeks ago and pledges can be made online easily at https://squareup.com/market/wines-elementary-school-pto/item/run-a-thon-donation-1.
If you are sending the link to friends and family, be sure to tell them your child’s teacher so it can be indicated at checkout.
