The inaugural Silver Lake Elementary Fun Run on September 14th was a HUGE success! Our school goal was to raise $15,000 for Teacher Grants, Classroom Resources and Student Awards & Activities.  We were able to raise a record-breaking $20,005

Here are a few FUN FACTS from our fun run this year:

–        All 540 students in grades K – 5 participated in the fun run

–        Students Registered Online: 64% or 346 out of 540 registered their child online

–        Students Pledged: 53% or 286 out of 540 received a pledge

–        We received pledges from all over the world. Pledges came in from 36 states and 8 countries!!!

Our Fun Run also came with a world-class character theme. This year’s theme was CASTLE QUEST, an English castle theme all about being brave and living with character. Students learned the “SIX VIRTUES of a TRUE HERO” from a cast of colorful characters like Muscle Mike and T-Rex Lex, attended a school pep-a-rally, earned prizes and ran up to 35 laps each during the fun run event.

A special thank you to our corporate and family t-shirt sponsors that made it possible to provide a free Silver Lake Elementary Fun Run t-shirt to every child in grades K – 5. This shirt will also be used for Class Field Trips!
