This year's Jog-a-thon will be held on September 30th - October 5th!

Sparky's Jog-a-Thon begins in just three weeks on Thursday, September 30!!  This year students will be running laps and raising money for their school from September 30-October 5th.

 

Your student(s) will have the opportunity to run for pledges during their PE Specials time with Mr. Miller (your child(ren) will see him once over those 4 days).  You have the option to pledge per minute your child(ren) runs or make a flat donation. 

 

We would like to remind you, this is Sexton Mountain PTC's BIGGEST fundraiser of the year.  The funds raised at the Jog-A-Thon go directly to benefit the students of SME and help provide many opportunities throughout the year. Our PTC also funds the much-needed technology and resources the staff needs to provide the best experience possible.  We need your support to have a successful school year.  For more information on how this money is used, please attend the PTC meeting at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, September 28th.  Everyone is welcome.  

 

This year donations will go through our Jog-A-Thon website.  We will also accept donations via check (made out to Sexton Mountain PTC) or cash mailed to the school, Attn: Sparky's Jog A Thon.  Donations can be pledged on a per-minute basis or a flat donation.
