Hello Rooftop Community!

Don’t forget the date for this year’s Rooftop Run is Sunday, October 26th at Lowell High School’s track and soccer field. Registration begins at 11am and the Run will start promptly at noon with the pre-K and K children taking off first to chase KONG and the Banana. After that first lap by the younger children, the rest of the school can run, get their stripes and make some money for our school. The run goes until 1pm and then we picnic and party until 2pm when the cleanup begins.

The t-shirt order forms went out with last week’s bulletin (see attachment) and they can be downloaded from the website as well. Please place the completed order forms and payment in the Run box at either campus.

We have a new family picking up orders and fulfilling them for the t-shirt that Amy Balsbaugh graciously designed this year. Her name is Gaby and her daughter Mia is in 1st Grade at Burnett. Gaby will pick the orders up from the Run box at both campuses on Friday and fulfill and distribute the t-shirts the following Monday.

I am also sending out all the job descriptions, including Room Coordinators, to your class email alias. Please be aware that you will be receiving quite a bit of email regarding the Rooftop Run this week. The Paper Packets will be distributed with the Wednesday Bulletin for those of you who have requested a paper copy of the bulletin. If you are not able to download the forms and are NOT on the distribution list for the paper copy of the Wednesday Bulletin, please let me know and I can make sure you have a paper packet. So far, it seems as I’ve only had to make 200 packets this year. Last year, I made 600+, so thank you, it really helps keep the costs of the event down!

Please start soliciting your friends, family and coworkers for per lap donations or ask them to make a flat rate donation. The suggested family amount is $300. You can put those payments in the Run box at either campus at any time.

This week’s appearance by KONG at Friday’s morning sing-a-long was a roaring success, I sure hope he shows up again before the Run! I think he surprised staff members and students alike. He’s rip roaring and ready to chase the Organic Banana around the track come October 26th!

Thank You,
