Congratulations to all of our hard working QAE students- they collected hundreds of sponsors and then ran their hearts out on Friday afternoon!
Wow, we asked for sun and we got it- Friday was HOT, but that didn’t slow them down… Inspired by the sounds of our own DJ Dad, Joe Booth, and the cheers of staff, friends and family, and rewarded by ice cream from the Umpqua Bank ice cream truck, our kids were full of positive energy and had a blast!
Thanks to all of the volunteers who came to help set up, count laps, hand out water and cheer them on- we could not have done this without you!
Awards were announced at the morning meeting on Monday- Congratulations to Mrs. Meck’s class who won the coveted rocket trophy for raising the most money with over $3,800 in donations collected!
The rocket for the student who collected the most sponsors went to first grader Bailey Morris who had 42 sponsors!
The student in each class who collected the most sponsors won an award and a gift certificate to either Communique Toys or Blue Highway games, and the students who ran the most laps in each class won an Olympic style medal- all of these students should be very proud.
Our current total for this year’s Jog-a-thon is just over $26,000!! This means that we are very very close to our goal of $100 per QAE student. We know that there are still some uncollected sponsorships out there, so if you have more to turn in, please do! Don’t forget about the Pay Pal option- it’s super easy to direct friends and family to the QAE website to make their donations there- and also don’t forget about company matching- both for donations and for time volunteered.
Again, thank you so much to all of the parents who came to help on Friday- we hope you enjoyed this fun event- your effort and enthusiasm is what makes QAE great!
