Beaverdash Schedule

Hi parents! Here is the run schedule for the Beaverdash on April 12th. Please make sure your child wears comfortable clothing and running shoes. We will have the event on the field, which may or may not be wet. You may send extra shoes and socks in your child’s backpack if you think this will be an issue. Water and snacks will be provided by the PTA. The top Boy and Girl lap runners in each class will receive a prize that day. Weather should be nice, but we will go as planned rain or shine. Remember, donations are due on April 23rd, to be eligible for prizes. So far we’ve raised $21,000! only $4,000 to go to reach our school goal! Thank you for all your support! 


Beaverdash Prize Day: On May 3rd all students who earned prizes will receive them at the end of the day. Also, at 8:30 am Mrs. Carrillo will be kissing the animal, if we reach our goal, we will keep you posted. You are welcome to come and attend the smooching fest if you would like. Students, teachers and staff will form a circle on the blacktop with Mrs. Carrillo and the mystery animal in the middle for all to witness! More info to come.
