It’s That Time of Year!

2014 Jog-A-Thon (JAT) is on Friday, November 14, 2014

Last year over 500 students jogged and worked hard to earn over $60,000 to support Fremont programs that we all value.  100% of the money raised by the students from the Jog-A-Thon goes to programs like the Classroom Aides, Field Trips, Educational Assemblies, Meet the Masters, Drama Club, Home Reading Club and many other amazing programs.

In October, information will come home with your student on the JAT.  All students will be given a T – Shirt in honor of this annual event and have the opportunity to win many exciting prizes as a result of their hard work. Your participation is critical for the success of this event and we thank you in advance for your help!

If you or your place of work is interested in becoming a sponsor, please let us know.  We must have sponsors in order for the JAT to take place, please consider becoming one.  This year we are offering “Family Sponsorships” and you can have your family banner go up on the fence along with our local business sponsors if you wish. *Please note that sponsorship monies will not go towards your child’s individual envelope incentives.

So far the JAT Committee has secured $3,500.00 to sponsor the event.  All funds will go toward buying T-shirts, prizes, food, and other supplies for the JAT.  We want to thank the following sponsors who have already committed to making the Jog-A-Thon possible:  Jeannette Architects, ORE, Heidi & Jack Brantley Realtors, Dr. Mark Garlington DDS, En Pointe Dance & Fitness, Sea View Optometric, Cindi Rogan Realtor, Let’s Talk Speech & Language Therapy, Adriana Manfredi Piano & Voice Lessons, Mitchell Land & Improvement Co, and Growing Roots.

On Friday, October 24th we will hold a “Kick-Off” assembly to get the kids EXCITED for the Jog –A-Thon and information will come home with your student.   PLEASE pay attention to all documents, especially the permission slips.  If your child does not have a permission slip turned in on time, they cannot participate.

We look forward to celebrating this exciting event with your child and family!

Warm Regards,
Jennifer B. Perez and the JAT 2014 Committee
