A Jog-A-Thon is a fun way to get exercise while raising money for all of the enriching PTA programs we love at McGaugh! This year the Jog-A-Thon was held on Friday, January 27th. Students ran laps of 1/8th of a mile - TK/Kindergarten for 10 minutes, 1st/2nd graders for 15 minutes, and 3rd/4th/5th graders for 20 minutes. McGaugh students asked family and friends to sponsor them to reach our schoolwide goal of $40,000. Our school community is AMAZING and so we far exceeded that goal by raising over....
This money will be used to purchase a Book Vending Machine - which will require special tokens for R.A.H. behavior, to provide funding for school field trips, to hire an additional intervention teacher, and to add to our popular and essential Wellness Center on campus.
