Our kids are ready to run for Poinsettia!

11th Annual JOG-A-THON Fundraiser
Thursday, November 17, 2017

Details coming soon!

What is the JOG-A-THON?

At the Poinsettia Elementary annual JOG-A-THON, students have fun while supporting a great cause! They’ll seek pledges and run laps around the field with lots of excitement. The JOG-A-Thon has grown to become Poinsettia PTA’s second largest fundraiser of the year. This year we’re on a mission to raise $20,000 in order to:

Enable Poinsettia students to have weekly P.E. Class all year long!
Support our overall PTA fundraising goals! These funds also pay for weekly Art & Science classes
Instruction, Teacher Mini-Grants, Field Trips, Assemblies & much more.

How does the JOG-A-THON compare to Poinsettia’s other fundraisers?

Poinsettia PTA has established the following fundraisers to reach a goal of approximately $100,000 ($200 per student) for programs and supplies that state funding does not support:

Annual Fund Drive – Goal: $200/student
JOG-A-THON – fundraising goal: $20,000
Spring Auction
Book Fairs, Tile Painting, passive "free money" programs

Without the financial support of our families, friends and community, we would risk losing our enriching programs and supplies. Last year, the JOG-A-THON raised over $17,000. Go Poinsettia Panthers! Let’s aim for even higher this year.

How does my child participate in the JOG-A-THON?

GET PLEDGES! See our “how to” below.
RUN LAPS! Your child will run laps with his or her class. Each class will wear a specific shirt color. Parent volunteers will help keep track of laps. See above for schedule.
WIN PRIZES! Students who run the most laps in various categories and collect the most pledges will be rewarded with prizes from our sponsors, and all students will go home with a goodie bag.

How To Raise Money For The JOG-A-THON:

Print copies of the JOG-A-THON pledge request letter -- or come to our letter writing table with your child on Wed, Nov 12th between 7:45-8:15 am.

Have your child fill out the letter for each possible supporter. Consider GRANDPARENTS (especially), extended family such as aunts/uncles, friends, neighbors, and parents’ business associates! Mail or hand out letters. Some students choose to call their supporters or ask in person!

Use the Pledge Sheet to keep track of pledges/donations. Contributions can be a flat donation (i.e. $25, $100, $200) or on a per lap basis (i.e. $2 for every lap). Donors can make checks payable to “Poinsettia PTA” OR donate online at:  Poinsettia2015.mydagsite.com

Turn in Pledge Sheets and donations by Tuesday, Dec 2nd. This is more than two weeks after the JOG-A-THON, which gives you extra time to collect donations!

Remember, all donations are 100% tax deductible and directly support our programs.
Thank you for helping make Poinsettia’s JOG-A-THON a huge success!
