Everything You Wanted To Know

Week of October 22, 2018


A Note from our Principal and Jogathon Chairs:

EVERYTHING IS BEYOND AWESOME , THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!!! We are excited to announce that our Fall 2018 Jog-a-thon raised….drum roll please…..OVER $50,000!!! Not only did we far surpass our goal of $35,000 but we set a new record for this fundraising event.

None of this would be possible without the hard work, generosity and dedication of SJF families and friends. THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts, we are so grateful. As promised, for SMASHING our goal, the ENTIRE SCHOOL will enjoy a catered lunch from Raul’s Mexican Restaurant on Tuesday November 20 th , courtesy of Grove Custom Homes / The Hunt Family.

We would like to thank our committee members who brought their creativity and talent to make this a landmark success: Megan King (Finance Chair), Molly O’Neil (Procurement), Ralph Schultz (Race Day Intelligence), Amy Koopman (Volunteer Coordinator) and Erica Wells (Communications). You all knocked it out of the park- thank you!!

Finally, let’s hear it for our sponsors! These companies and individuals offset our costs with their generous giving. We encourage you to return the favor by frequenting their businesses when possible.

With Deepest Gratitude,

Carey Hunt & Erin McClaskey
