coyote chase - fri, sept. 9!
How would you like to help make this event a success?
We need volunteers to help with counting the kids' laps, keeping the water table stocked, tallying results, handing out Popsicles and more!
Check your child's Friday Folders for the Coyote Chase Pledge Packets. Donors can pledge a per lap amount - for example, $1 per lap, or a flat amount such as $50.
This is one of PTSA's most important fundraisers and best of all - it's a really fun day for kids, staff & volunteers! Join us - many volunteer needs are only for an hour or two.
