Parent Information

Parents, below you will find some sample language to use when emailing friends and family regarding a tax-deductible donation to our Jog-A-Thon. The language is also customizable for older kids who wish to send their own emails. Feel free to craft your own email message as well.

Once you’ve sent an email to all friends and family members who might be interested, we will keep you posted on monies you’ve raised online.

Now for the money you’re collecting at home and in your neighborhood: Keep track of this money in your pledge envelope. You’ll turn this in by Friday, May 10 to the School Office. If you’d prefer to send in money as you collect it, please use one of the slips included with your pledge envelope (or print more online). We want to make sure your family is credited with all the money you raise!
