Fun Run

Roberts will hold its 3rd Annual Fun Run to raise funds for much needed improvements and repairs around the school. Additionally, 5% of what each classroom raises will go back to that classroom for supplies, books, or other needed items. A further 1% percent will go to our local food bank to feed hungry children. This year’s Fun Run will be held during the month of April with the big FUN RUN event on Friday, April 20th, 2018.

The Fun Run will kick off on Monday, April 9th with a Pep Rally to get the children excited and to explain the program. On the day of the Pep Rally, your child will come home with a pledge sheet and detailed instructions on how family and friends can sponsor them. 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.

Then 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.

On Friday, April 20th, 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.

Volunteers:
Each classroom needs a classroom liaison for the pep rally and the Fun Run, so please contact your room parent if you are interested in attending those with your child’s class. Separately, we need parent volunteers to help general, non-classroom specific tasks during the two weeks of the program.
