Fun Run – September 25, 2019

13th Annual Fun Run 2019

Wednesday – September 25, 2019

Our students have the unique opportunity to raise pledges for Service Learning Projects:

  1. The Children of Ethiopia Education Fund (COEEF) – Specifically, the COEEF program sponsors girls in Ethiopia so they can attend school.
  2. Adopt-a-Native Elder Program – Allows us to reach out to one another, share our gifts, and mend the broken circle of our relationship with the Land and the Native Americans who hold it in sacred trust.
  3. MEF Growth & Education – Continuing to grow the Montessori Educational Foundation nonprofit though grassroots Montessori advocacy and support

Make a bigger impact by

  • Helping your child to set a goal to raise a certain amount.
  • Helping your child tell family and friends about the Fun Run. You would be surprised how many friends, neighbors and grandparents are eager to support such a worthwhile cause.
  • Helping your child actively participate. (For example, earning money by doing extra chores at home. Then, in turn donating to this charitable event.)
  • Attending the event and join with them as they run or cheer them on from the sidelines.
  • Volunteering to help at the event. Please email for details.
  • Our goal this year is to raise at least $7,000 total, with 80% family participation. Help us beat exceed our previous goal.

We look forward to this exciting Service Learning experience and hope all of our families will participate with enthusiasm.

“We discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being.”

Last Week’s Annual Fun Run Fundraiser Update

Wow! What a fantastic event. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make this year’s Fun Run such a wonderful, exciting event.

The morning was beautiful. We couldn’t have asked for better weather. The students were buzzing with excitement.

Students began with some warm-up exercises then the clock was started and they were off. Students ran laps through a 65 foot inflatable obstacle course then climbed a 24 foot inflatable slide to complete the course loop.

High fives were given, wrist bands marked per lap, and much cheering and encouragement from teachers, staff, parents, and peers.

After their timed run was up, students enjoyed some fruit slices and water to cool down and chat about their experience with the course amongst all those milling about.

Our Toddler friends were able to walk, run, and toddle their way through a small obstacle course around their own playground. With the help of their teachers, PSA, and Fun Run Committee, they worked their way through the various challenges set up. They, too, enjoyed fruit slices to finalize their running time.

Currently, we have raised $3,504.42! A big thanks to all those who have sponsored and contributed to our Montessori Education Foundation (MEF) and supported our Service Learning Program. You may still bring money in until October 12th, 2018.

***As MEF is a 501c we would like to issue receipts to all those who donated and would like one! Please contact or stop by the school office to request a receipt.
