We’ll start with a Pep Rally, and then your family will have time to get pledges. At the end, every student will participate in the Cheetah Chase Fun Run! This year, our goas to raise $20K for our STEM program, and we need EVERYONE’S help! Please begin thinking about friends and family who could pledge your student for the Cheetah Chase. We want this to be fun and easy for everyone, so think of others who can support your student as they run laps to help our school. Look for a Pledge Crown to come home on Wednesday, October 11 with more information. And don’t forget to save the Fun Run Date—Friday, October 20—on your calendar. You’re invited to come out and cheer on our students! More details to come. Thank you for supporting Chalker Elementary School and have a great day!
