April 15 Update
The craziness has begun! Thanks to great participation in Fun Run registration, principals and assistant principals wore clown wigs and rode scooters for a day. What’s next? Stay tuned!
The middle school will have an altered schedule and early dismissal after the Fun Run. Lunch will be at 1:15 p.m., after the Fun Run, so parents may want to send a hearty snack for their students to eat at the mid-morning snack break. Dismissal will be at 2:15 p.m. Late Stay will begin at 2:30 with charges beginning at the normal time (3:25 p.m.)
What about the Fun Run itself? As of today, the forecast for the Fun Run on Wednesday, April 21, is for sun and highs in the 70s. Students will be outside at the Fun Run for approximately an hour (K3 and K4 for 30 minutes). So, what to wear? Here’s the Fun Run Day attire.
- Elementary Students: Wear Fun Run attire all day.
- Fun Run shirt (or another shirt; lap-counter stickers will be used for those without a Boosterthon shirt)
- Loose-fitting pants, capris, jeans, athletic pants, or knee-length shorts
- Socks and athletic shoes
- No sleeveless shirts, spandex, leggings, yoga/skinny pants, tights, sweatpants, sandals or cleats, please
- 6–12 Students
- Boosterthon shirt or shirt in team color (T-shirts or sweatshirts/hoodies are acceptable; lap-counter stickers will be used for those without a Boosterthon shirt)
- Neat and loose-fitting jeans/pants or athletic pants
- No low-riders, spandex, leggings, shorts, yoga or skinny pants, tights, sweatpants (sweatshirt material), or tank tops, please.
- For the actual run
- athletic shoes
- optional: knee-length athletic shorts; until time for the run, wear athletic pants over the shorts
- The secondary run will be a color run. Even after going through the wind tunnel at the end of the run, some of the colors may remain on the fabric.
- A “color free” lane will be available for students wishing to avoid having color dust on their clothes.
