Fun Run

Roberts will hold its 3rd Annual Fun Run to purchase new SMART BOARDS for each classroom.  Most of the classroom technology platforms are more than 10 years old and function like an old-fashioned projector.  That would be like you using a flip phone instead of a smart phone!

This year’s Fun Run will be held during March, starting with the Pep Rally on Monday, March 19th, and ending with the FUN RUN event on Thursday, March 29th.

The Pep Rally gets the children excited and explains the program. That day, your child will come home with a pledge crown, 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 nine days, the children will watch a daily video about building character and will receive prizes based on the amount of pledges they have received.

To register, go to FunRun.com, using code: 552-127Once your child has an account, you can upload a photo to create a funny video to be emailed out, asking for pledges.

On Thursday, 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 – but EVERYONE needs to be VIPS approved, a process which can take 1-2 weeks to complete.

[notice]Student Run Times are:
K-1st: 8:30-9:30am
2nd-3rd: 9:45-10:45am
4th-5th: 11-12pm[/notice]

Volunteers:
Each classroom needs a classroom liaison for the pep rally and the Fun Run. If you are interested, please see if your class has one and/or register here   Separately, we need parent volunteers to help general, non-classroom specific tasks during the two weeks of the program.
