Support the Spirit Run!

Monday, January 29th from 1-3 at the La Rec Center

What is the Spirit Run?

This is the 4th year of much enjoyed, very successful SMA Spirit Run. This annual “fun”draiser is a celebration of our school community, promoting healthy students while at the same time raising money towards the PTO’s yearly fundraising goal. Students will do their best to complete as many laps as they can in the time allowed.

What does my child need to do?

All students are asked to solicit donations to cover their participation in the spirit run. The expectation is that every student will participate by running for 30 minutes! Students show up on race day in appropriate athletic wear, put forth their best effort on the field, then enjoy a finish line celebration with their classmates.  

Fundraising Goals

Our fundraising goal for this event is $13,000. WE CAN REACH THIS GOAL IF EVERY FAMILY RAISES $100.  The PTO is tasked with filling a small portion of the school budget each year. Meeting this goal allows us to support our classrooms and supplement spending on technology, school improvements, and curricular enrichment.
