SEF 2014 Jogathon

The Saratoga Education Foundation's Annual Jogathon will be held Friday, May 9th from 1:00-3:00pm. This event is a lot of fun, great exercise for the kids, and an important fundraiser for SEF! This year SEF has not yet reached our 2013-2014 fundraising goal. Please help keep all the SEF sponsored programs funded for next year by generously supporting Jogathon! Please help us make it a huge success:

  • The permission slip and pledge form is being sent home with your child today by their science teacher. You can fill out the permission slip and pledge form ONLINE this year.  Please go to this link and complete by May 6th.   Or you can fill out the paper copy and have your child return to their science teacher as soon as possible but no later than May 6th.  Students without signed permission slips will not be able to participate in this event and will be in a supervised classroom for the duration of the event.
  • Pledges & donations equal raffle prizes such as  Xbox1, Ipad mini, Beats Pill speaker, I Fly Pass, and Y&L Blowout Bar/nail party for 6 girls
