4th Annual Fun Run Coming Soon!

Roberts will hold its 4th  Annual Fun Run to raise money for ongoing Curriculum Enrichment which is all about enhancing our children’s learning experiences through supplemental programs, such as Writers In The Schools, Young Audiences, &  The Life Cycle Program, as well as  varied professional development for teachers for IB enhancement, effective teaching strategies and deeper content knowledge. Think of it as making Roberts an even better place to send your child!  

This year’s Fun Run kicks off with a Pep Rally on Monday, March 18th and ends with the FUN RUN event on Friday, March 29th.

The Pep Rally gets the children excited and explains the program. That day, your child will come home with a pledge book, sending you to a website with more details and to register. Once registered, sponsors can pledge money based on how many laps your child runs or just give a flat donation. Your child can also send video emails (which are super easy to create) across the world asking friends and family to sponsor them. This is a great way for family and friends to show their support for your children and it also helps your children learn some important lessons about teamwork and contributing to their community.

Each day for ten days, the children will receive prizes based on the amount of pledges they have received, while experiencing an inspirational character theme MINDSPARK MYSTERY LAB, which combines S.T.E.A.M skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building. While they’re teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to solve mysteries, our students will learn five 21st-century character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.

Registration opens on March 11th.  To register, go to FunRun.com, using code: 327-888. 
 Once your child has an account, you can upload a photo to create a funny video to be emailed out, asking for pledges.
 
On Friday, March 29th, the entire school will participate in the Fun Run. Each child is encouraged to run as many laps as possible, up to 35, with each lap raising money for the school.  All parents, grandparents and friends are welcome to come watch and cheer on the students – Fun Run will be followed by Field Day and we need volunteers for both!  Please sign up here and remember EVERYONE needs to be VIPS approved, a process which can take 1-2 weeks to complete.
