What a day!

Hope you Marguerita families rested up after the eventful day.

Thank you everyone for your involvement and helping us fundraise. Stay tuned to see if we met our goal of 16k. #margueritaJAT2018 #margueritahuskies #buildingabettercommunity

It's not too late to help these teachers get 100% participation to win a $25 gift card and be entered to win a teacher's raffle basket! #margueritajat2018 #buildingabettercommunity #supportyourteachers

Ms. Davis' class is currently the only class that has 100% participation! The following teachers are so close (lacking pledges from 5 or fewer students): Chao, Creel, Gao, Lin, Song, Wong. Let's talk to the teachers and support these other students. Let's work together to help get as many classes to 100% participation as we can! The teachers' raffle basket has school supplies valued at over $100!

We're in the final stretches of the Jog-A-Thon pledge period, so let's remind ourselves about why we're doing this. We're fundraising for Marguerita because Marguerita teaches and takes care of our children.

So get us all excited and tell us in the comments on Facebook and Instagram why YOU love Marguerita, and we'll enter you in a raffle to win a Chick-fil-A food card!

Three chances to win! The third way you can be entered to win is subscribe to our blog updates/e-newsletter to be entered in the raffle.

Winners will be announced Tuesday November 6th, and you must be a PTA member to win. #margueritaJAT2018 #loveyourPTA #BuildingaBetterCommunity
