It is time for Rivendell's 16th annual Fun Run fundraiser, and this year's theme is Rock and Roll. It will be held on Friday, October 2nd from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. (Preschool at 9:00, Younger Kids 9:40, Middle Kids 10:20, Older Kids 11:00). Returning families may notice that the event has been changed from spring to fall, and this change has been made with hopes for better weather, as well as having our two top fundraiser events a little farther apart.The funds raised this year will go towards purchasing new equipment for the music and art classrooms.
Keep an eye out for your child's Fun Run packet that will be coming home this week. We need lots of volunteers to make this event a success, so if you have an hour or three, please click here to volunteer it's an easy and fun way to make a difference at Rivendell! If you have any questions please email: FunRun@Rivendell-School.org.
For this event, students collect sponsors who pledge a monetary amount for each lap the student runs. On the day of the Fun Run, students are cheered on by teachers, classmates and parents as they complete as many laps as they can. Students then collect the pledged amounts from their sponsors. Proceeds from the Fun Run are designated for a specific campaign that directly benefits the students, such as new technology, musical instruments, playground equipment, etc.
