2017 Waddell Language Academy Fun Run
The PTSO is so excited to be able to partner again with Boosterthon to host our annual Fun Run fundraiser. This year it is a bit earlier – kick off is on Tuesday, October 3rd and the Day of Run is on Thursday, October 12th. This is our sixth year of the Fun Run and we have seen five glorious past events at our Waddell campus. It is a great time for all families (parents, grandparents, siblings) to come out and cheer on your student as they run in support of our school. For those of you new to this event, students will bring home a pledge card after the kick-off on Tuesday, Oct. 3rd. There will be full instructions on how to access their online profile and to start reaching out to friends & family. The premise is to raise money for laps run; often people will pledge a per lap rate (ie. $1 per lap run) or just give a flat donation. The course is set up on the Waddell football field and students will be able to run a maximum of 36 laps (or approximately 2 miles.) This Fun Run is the main engine behind our PTSO budget that supports every area of our annual expenditures. For more information on where the PTSO funds will be spent this year, please visit the “Your PTSO” page of this website. The goal is to raise $60,000 from the 2017 Fun Run.
While the Elementary School has their Fun Run, the Middle School will take part in the amazing Color Run! Check out the pictures belolow. Students will raise money through flat donations (rather than the per lap pledges) with the Color Run being their grand finale event.
The Fun Run theme for this year is CASTLE QUEST. Take a few minutes to watch this video and find out what character traits will be used in the classrooms during the Fun Run week.
Our new t-shirt logo is featured above! All elementary and middle school students plus staff & teachers will receive a free shirt.
