We had our kick off assembly for Jog-a-Thon today.  The staff members played some Minute to Win It games to get the kids excited!  Please make sure your children are safe when they are asking for pledges.  I don't recommend having them go door to door, especially to people's houses they do not know!  With that being said,  help them get lots of pledges so our class can win a prize!  Individual students can win prizes also.  The top prize is your choice between an iPad mini or a $200 Toys R' Us shopping spree!  There are prizes for most laps run by a girl/boy in first grade, and prizes for most money raised by students.  In the past our school has used our fundraiser to help purchase SMARTboards for every classroom in the Elementary School!  The students LOVE working on the SMARTboard.  I can't wait to see what our school is able to provide for students with Jog-a-Thon money this year!

 Flip your lid!  Contestants had to flip a cup onto the pop bottles.  We needed a couple more seconds!
Bucket Head!  Staff had to catch mini marshmallows in a cup on their head.  Mrs. Durand and Mrs. Erickson won.  Mr. H caught three in his cup and three in his mouth!

Mrs. Peterson and Mrs. Sommerio played Defy Gravity.  It is much harder than it looks!

Mr. Traum won Face the Cookie in record time!  Contestants had to get the cookie from their forehead to their mouth by only using their facial muscles!
