What a Fun Run!
An obstacle course bounce house, the new format for the Fun Run this year, was a great success with all the Early Childhood and Elementary students. They were so enthusiastic in their participation and we were quite impressed with how many times so many of the children completed the course. Several parents came to cheer on their children and that of course made them want to complete extra laps.
As the course was not suitable for the Toddlers, they ran their laps on their own playground and once they got the idea they ran with great enthusiasm. They got so excited it was a challenge to get them to stop in the end!
With the online pledges to date plus individual donations already handed, in the students have earned over $5,500! We are still shooting to meet our goal of $7,000 and would appreciate your support. Please be sure to get your pledges turned in as soon as you are able – our goal is within reach!
Donations may be made through the website, www.mcsfunrun.org, or turned in directly to the office in the form of cash or check (payable to Montessori Education Foundation, or MEF). We will of course accept donations that will be used exclusively for our grandmothers Elvira and Anita and our students in Ethiopia at any time. Your students’ efforts, along with all your support will make such a huge difference in the lives of those served by these contributions.
