Jog-a-thon (JAT) is one of the best traditions at Happy Valley Elementary, and it’s one of our school’s BIGGEST fundraisers of the year!
What is Jog-A-Thon?
HVE's Jog-A-Thon is a run/walk fundraising event that happens during the school day. Students in each grade have the opportunity to jog or walk around the track next to the middle school, as many times as possible. For every lap completed, students will have the opportunity to earn money for their school by securing pledges from family, neighbors, and friends. Monies raised helps support such efforts as updating and enhancing the school playground or purchasing items for the library, classrooms, or greater school building.
All students who participate, regardless of funds raised, will have the chance to win some great prizes. At this year's Jog-a-Thon, students are encouraged to wear their class chosen favorite color. Clothing should be appropriate for school and allow for comfortable physical activity.
