  • Walk-A-Thon News:  Tonight is the donation deadline for our Walk-A-Thon. Thank you to everyone who has already donated! Congratulations to the Sage Team! This weekend they joined Lime, Scarlet, Pacific, Ruby and Garnet in the $2000 club. Evergreen is very close to joining the club too. We still need help reaching our $18,000 net goal.  Because of administrative and prize expenses, we need to earn a bit more to reach our goal and fully fund our budget for the school.  Please consider helping us out if you haven't already by going to the getmovincrew.com. The prize competitions will close tonight and prizes will be announced tomorrow morning for the fundraising winners. Currently in the lead for the $100 cash prize for each grade are: 6th - Vincent Ryder, Lime 7th - Tony DeMartino, Scarlet 8th - Richard Collins, Pacific. Currently in the lead for the team Pizza Party is the Lime Team. And the grade in the lead to earn those cross team lunches is the 7th grade. Again it isn't over yet, donations close today so get those last minute donations in. Be sure to tune in tomorrow! And thank you to everyone that has already helped to make our fundraiser a success!
