If you’re new to RAS, each year we do a jog-a-thon to raise money for special projects for a better student experience.
Last year we raised money for laptops for 7th/8th grade classrooms and this year we have two goals:
1) Laptops for 5th/6th grade classrooms to use
2) A transit vehicle for field trips and other classroom needs.
We love to get our students out of the classroom for enriched learning opportunities, but getting a reliable bus or a qualified driver is always a big problem. Additionally, busy parent schedules don’t always permit a parents to drive on field trips. Purchasing a transit vehicle that a teacher could drive will really help us continue to plan excellent trips.
Additionally, we always give a tithe on what we’ve raised to a local community need. Students are gathering suggestions on what worthy cause to contribute our tithe to.
When: September 27, 9-11 a.m.
Where: Martin Field, by the Memorial Pool
How do I get there? Bus from school or parents can drive.
