Jog-A-Thon Needs Volunteers

A majority of students is expected to participate in the Jog-A-Thon. This means we need A LOT of help. We need about 3 volunteers PER CLASS to help tally the kids running their laps and cheering them on.

Additionally, you will NOT be able to see your child run or cheer them on unless you are volunteering. This event is during school hours and is not open to all parents. So you do have to be CLEARED to volunteer.

Here is a link to the online signup sheet to volunteer. Sign up for your child's class or for another teacher during the same run time. If you can sign up for the entire day (it's a minimum day), we could certainly use the help!

And if you are unable to volunteer that day, you can still help by talking to other parents about the Jog-a-thon, and by getting pledges/sponsors for your child.

The volunteer signup time slots are set up around the class run times. The run schedule is below.

Taking Orders for Gift Cards!

Scrip Gift Card Fundraiser was a great success today. Don't forget we will be there tomorrow and Thursday (10/30-11/1). We are setup at the Marguerita and Benito gate. Come by and say hi! Get your orders in before 11/2, order deadline if you want your gift cards before Thanksgiving break.

Donations are tax deductible!

Make your Jog-A-Thon donations count! 

Donations are tax deductible -- if you need to provide a receipt to your sponsor, please contact us. 

If your employer offers gift matching for your charitable donations, please take advantage of it! 

Marguerita PTA is a 501(c)(3) organization.

Jog-A-Thon T-Shirt Fundraiser

Thank you to SanMar Corp and Unleashed Apparel for donating 20 youth shirts that will be given out as prizes. However with 800 students, PTA did not want students to miss out on the opportunity to get their hands on the shirt and an opportunity to fundraise. For a VERY brief time, families can order a shirt for their child(ren) or themselves. The shirts are encouraged to be worn the day of the Jog-A-Thon and can be worn year round as a spirit wear shirt. Order forms will go out tomorrow but if you would like to get ahead of the game and send in your order tomorrow, please print out a form from the link below and send in your payment with your child. In order for the shirts to arrive by next week, order MUST be placed and paid for no later than this Thursday, Nov 1st. (Disclaimer: A t-shirt is not mandatory to participate in the Jog-A-Thon)

Jog-A-Thon T-Shirt Order Form
