SMOY Spirit Run 2019

Dear Parents,

Thank you for making our SMOY SPIRIT RUN a success! We hope your students enjoyed their runs yesterday, despite the heat. Thank you for praying for no rain so that we could have an outdoor run…clearly, those prayers were heard!

The numbers are in, and we CRUSHED our goal: $57,751! This is AMAZING! Pledging will remain open through next Thursday, and students can still earn prizes. 

Our first collection date for non-credit card pledges will be next Thursday, October 10th. However, you are welcome to send in your donations any time! Please be sure to label your checks (payable to SMOY PTO) or envelopes with your student name/homeroom teacher/amount and send them in to school with your students.  You can also write one check for your whole family – please label it with all the students’ information and how the check should be split.

Finally, please join us in saying THANK YOU to everyone who helped make our fundraiser a success this year:

  • Our TEACHERS for all the extra motivation, enthusiasm, patience, time, and support!
  • Becky Pitz, our PTO Fundraising, for being such a great leader and organizer of all things related to the Spirit Run!
  • Lisa Alexander for designing our SMOY Spirit Run logo, t-shirts, and design elements again!
