It's not too late to share the donations link with family and friends!  Takes 10 minutes to set-up and share via email and social media...and the best part is100% of donations go directly to SY Jackson!

 

The New Jaguar Jog-a-thon...online payment option to share with friends and family PledgeStar.com/syjackson

 

Our hope is to make Jogathon our biggest and best fund raiser of the year! With 100% of our proceeds coming back to our own school community, it just makes more sense to put our efforts into this fun event that everyone can participate in, and everyone is a winner! 

 

New twists this year!

 

1. We have moved this annual event from the Spring to the Fall. Some of the reasons to do that are: better weather (decreasing the need for cancelations), alleviating time constraints at the end of the year, and really wanting to have a bigger and more successful fund raiser at the beginning of the year to help fund all of our wonderful programs that the PTA provides, just to name a few. 

 

2. Thanks to Holtam Orthodontics and their very generous donation, we will be giving each and every student an SYJ Jaguar Jogathon T-shirt to run in on September 20th! We have sized every student and they will receive their shirts on race day. Afterwards, they can keep the T-shirt to wear throughout the year to show their Jaguar pride and hopefully continue to foster a sense of school spirit! The kids are excited!

 

3. GREAT PRIZES are an SYJ tradition! This year we’ve got a TON. Thanks to one of our own SYJ families, Danforth & Sons Service Co., we are adding some extra BIG prizes this year that we have NOT had before, including two GALAXY tablets, a Next Mountain Bike, and a MADD GEAR Scooter, ALL brand new! These are in addition to all the other great prizes we usually have to award our eager earners!!! We are one of the only schools in Albuquerque that gives away big prizes of this caliber! So please encourage and help your children this year by getting sponsors, and let them know that they are helping their own school community by participating! 

 

4. We will also have a DRAWING for 2 of the top prizes. The MADD GEAR SCOOTER and 8.0" GALAXY TABLET will be awarded. For every increment of $25 dollars donated, that student will get an additional ticket to be entered into the drawing and increase their chances of winning.  

 

As always, the teacher with the class that earns the most money also wins a special prize! 

 

5. NEW PAYMENT OPTION! We are now adding an option to PAY ONLINE!!! Now out of town relatives or friends can donate directly, eliminating the need for you to collect from them. Just go to PledgeStar.com/syjackson and sign up. It takes just a few clicks, and we are confident that this will help our families allow their friends and loved ones to participate as well. 

 

 

Thank you so much!

If you are an out of district family and you are planning to apply for a transfer for a kindergarten student for next year, you will need to go onto the APS website and get a student number.

 

This needs to be done before filling out the transfer.

 

It is an easy process, but does take a few days to complete.- would be best to have this completed before the end of January.

 

If you know of a family applying for an out of district transfer with a kindergarten student, please let them know as well.

Thanks!
Jack
