The CTES PTA FUN RUN starts Tuesday, May 29th!  Our 2-week fundraising program is kicking off this week, and we are so excited! We’ll start with a digital Pep Rally at school, and then your family will have time to get pledges. At the end, every student can participate in the Fun Run, organized by Boosterthon.

This year, our goal is to raise $20,000 for a new reading program, Literacy Footprints, and the music program, Quaver. We need EVERYONE’S help! Please begin thinking about friends and family who could pledge a contribution to your student for the CTES PTA FUN RUN as he or she runs laps of the bus loop to help our school.

Look for a Pledge Crown to come home on Pep Rally Day (May 29th) with more information. And don’t forget to save the Fun Run Date—June 8th—on your calendar.  This will precede our annual PTA Cub Celebration, a community picnic with food, music, dancing, and yearbook signing.  You’re invited to come out and cheer on our students!
