Preparations for the annual Race for Education are underway at St. Jude School. Sponsored by the Parent Teacher Guild, the Race for Education is the principal fund raiser for the Guild with proceeds being used for PTG projects including enrichment programs, field trips, and educational materials for the students.
Many parents volunteered their time to come into the classrooms and assist students in addressing letters to family and friends, asking them to sponsor the student on the day of the Race, which will be Friday, October 2. Classes will be scheduled at various times to complete the outdoor course as many times as possible during the allotted time.
The day will also feature face painting, bubbles, music, and an artistic lap-tracker. Each student will receive a St. Jude School sport pack for participating, compliments of the PTG, and earn dress-down days. The goal for this year is $16,000. Anyone who would like to make a donation to this endeavor is invited to contact the school office at 570-474-5803.
