Rheem Fun(d) Run
On October 3rd, 2018 Rheem students participated in one of our most cherished traditions, the Rheem PTA FUN(d) Run. Proceeds from this event support various Rheem’s PTA programs and our school's teaching assistants.
How does it work? Students begin the fun with a warm up, led by Rheem's P.E. teacher, John Studebaker. Next, students will walk, skip or jog for 15 minutes around the designated track. Parent volunteers will record the number of laps each child completes. Each grade spends about 30 minutes at the event, which fulfills each child's P.E. requirement for the day.
How much do we raise? Last year our Rheem Roadrunners raised more than $11,500 for our school, and we hope to top that this year! To meet that goal, we are hoping for a minimum donation of $30 per student runner, although any amount is GREATLY appreciated!
How do we get sponsors? Sponsorship forms were sent home with each child. Sponsorship can be per lap, with or without a maximum, or as a flat donation. Parents are encouraged to seek sponsorship from friends or family.
Only the "FUN(d)" portion of this event is a PTA activity. The "Run" portion is a school activity. Supporting our school's physical education program and free play facilities makes a big difference in the daily lives of our kids, and physical exercise actually helps them learn better!
