You Raised a Record $44,000 in Pledges!
Congratulations, Heights Jog-a-Thon Team, for raising a record $44,000 in pledges! We also had five classes with 100% of students who set up pledge pages, including Polivka, Smith, Solis, Rollins and Waldal. Each of these classes will get a $40 cash prize.
Mega-thanks also to Lani Curtis and Marna Pippel, our extraordinary Jog-a-Thon organizers, for the countless hours you’ve spent putting together this event! You guys rule! Finally, we are most grateful to YOU, our Heights parents, who have given generously of both your time in helping at the event and your pledges to support our school’s incredible “STEAM+ Team” teachers.
