Jogathon Update

Our Southgate Jogathon is a week away! Donation envelopes have been sent home with all students. Please contact us immediately if your student has not brought theirs home. Donation Envelopes are due by OCTOBER 19th.

Parent Signature is required on envelopes!

WHAT is a Jogathon? The Jogathon is an annual school-wide fundraiser held each fall. In the two weeks preceding the event, Southgate Elementary students collect pledges from family and friends. On the day of the event, the students run, skip and walk for 50 minutes around a specifically designed course while families and friends cheer them on. Students are supported with water, staff and family supervisors!
WHY have a Jog-a-thon? The funds raised are dedicated directly to our students and staff by sponsoring: Health & Fitness, Art, Music, the Library, the Classroom with curriculum and equipment, Assemblies and a whole lot more. Southgate Elementary parents have a long tradition of supporting the staff and students at Southgate.
Please Donate!!!
