FUN RUN EXTENDED UNTIL NOVEMBER 6!!!
This year, all students who raise at least $10 will receive a Fun Run T-shirt! If we meet our $20,000 goal, all students at Fir Grove will receive a Fun Run T-shirt.
The Fun Run is the PTO’s main fundraiser for the year. Our goal for the 2020-2021 school year is to raise $20,000. This funds many different things for Fir Grove! Typically field trips use a large portion of our Fun Run earnings. This year, funds that were earmarked for field trips are going toward take-home supplies, kindergarten play packs, and much more. The PTO board is working hard to ensure that teachers and students have what they need to navigate distance learning.
Due to Covid-19, this year’s Fun Run will look a bit different. Students can run individually from home instead of at school on a school day. Most fundraising will be done online, but there will be opportunities to drop off cash and checks at school.
In a typical year when Fun Run happens at school, a Fun Run lap is 300 feet long and the average number of laps is 18. This is definitely not a typical year, so families are welcome to count whatever lap length works for them and HAVE FUN!
If your student has per lap pledges, please email their name, teacher, and number of laps they ran to firstname.lastname@example.org with Fun Run Lap Count in the subject line. If your student has per lap pledges and we have not received a lap count by November 6, we will enter a default lap count of 20 laps.

If you have not yet picked up a Fun Run packet, you can still pick one up at the Fir Grove office!
