Students are asked to collect pledges in support of them completing laps around a ¼ mile track for 25 minutes during a day filled with laughter, music, healthy exercise and ROCKET PRIDE!! In order to make this event a success, we are counting on your support and generosity to help each student meet a recommended pledge goal of $40 per student (suggested amount—any amount above or below is GREATLY appreciated) in hopes of reaching our school goal of $10,000!! Pledges can be sent in via the envelopes that went home last week or via our PayPal account: All pledges are due by Wednesday, October 3rd. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!!
