Our Race for Education will be on Monday, May 14! This is our biggest PTO fundraiser of the year and our goal is $15,000! Please review these final details so that all of our students can make the most of that day.

All K-8 students need to bring sack lunches and drinks for that day. The cafeteria will not be open for K-8 students and staff and will only be serving preschool lunch. K-8 students will receive filled water bottles the day of the race to have with them outside in the afternoon. The bottles will be delivered filled to the classrooms at 11 a.m. on Monday.

WHAT TO WEAR: All students and staff should wear their Race Day t-shirts. Students will receive them on Friday! Since this is a Color Run with colored chalk, all students are encouraged to also wear athletic/gym shorts that day instead of uniform pants/shorts. Shorts should be an appropriate length and fit – no cut-off shorts or jean shorts. Middle school students are encouraged to wear their PE uniform shorts.

CONCESSIONS: Concession order forms and payments are due on Wednesday, May 9. Concessions will not be sold the day of the Race – we are taking prepaid orders only. The concession order form is on the back Race for Education information paper that came home in the packets.

RACE DONATIONS: To be considered for prizes, all race donations must be turned in by Wednesday, May 9. Cash or check donations (made payable to CAL-SW PTO) can be turned into the school office. Make sure that all donations are clearly marked with the student’s name. Donations can also be made online at www.caschools.us/sw-race.

PRIZES: If we meet our goal of $15,000 – any student that raises $500 or more will be entered in a drawing to “slime” Mrs. Carson at the end of Race Day. Three lucky students will be drawn for the sliming!
