Put on your running shoes!
Gallardo PTA is kicking off our annual Jog-A-Thon Fundraiser to be held on Friday, November 1, 2013.
The event will be held during the school day and will count toward your child’s
PE minutes for the week and toward Mileage Club.
How donations will be used
All proceeds from the Jog-a-Thon will help ensure essential programs at Gallardo Elementary continue to happen and new needs of the school are met. This year, as funds are available, the approved PTA budget will provide the school with additional librarian hours,improved campus technology, the Accelerated Reader program, supplies for teachers and students, school assemblies, various student programs, and much more. With continued state budget cuts we need your support now more than ever.
