NEWS AND NOTES
Mark your calendars! Off and Running Fun Run is Thursday, Oct. 24
•It’s the most important, and ONLY fundraiser of the year.
•By organizing the event ourselves, the PTO ensures that as much money as possible goes back to JJ Hill. Last year we raised over $70,000!
•The money raised from pledges goes to fund: our garden, the artist in residence program, field trip transportation, the upper elementary camp experience at Audubon, classroom equipment, supplies, Montessori materials, and much more!
•The Fun Run will take place during the school day on Thursday, October 24. You’re welcome to attend to cheer on the runners or volunteer the day of the race.
JJ Hill PTO is in need of some event planning help! Planning an event is such a great way to be involved and get to know the JJ Hill community. We have some events this year that are in need of planners:
Movie Nights: These are very popular events! The PTO has been organizing these for years, so we have a wealth of resources, information and personal help for anyone willing to take the lead on this!
National African American Parent Involvement Day: Last year at JJ Hill, NAAPID coincided with a showcase of learning organized by teachers, where students displayed biographies of people from under-represented groups. The PTO would also like to support a specific NAAPID event organized by African American families. Let us know if you are interested in organizing!
