Running with the Hawks
We had great weather for Running with the Hawks this past week. Thank you to everyone who join us to cheer on the students. The kids did a great job and now they can go collect pledges. All of the money collected will go directly to our PTO. This money has been used to purchase books, technology, a rock wall, soccer goals, a playground expansion and more. Online donations have become very popular over the past few years. This is especially helpful for family that live out of town. Click here to access our online donation feature. Click here for an additional copy of the paperwork that was sent home. All pledge money is due by Friday, November 2. We have a few classroom goals and a building goal that we will be tracking. If the
students reach these goals they will earn reward here at school. Good luck Hawks!
