DETAILS FOR THE 2019-20 WOLF RUN - THURSDAY, MAY 23
This year our Wolf Run will be held in the back parking lot at the South Campus. The lot is very large and fenced in, off of a one-way, side street (Dakin). This year we are once again partnering with Boosterthon - a company that specializes in organizing fun-run fundraising events for schools - to execute our3rd Annual Wolf Run. Based on their past experience they have helped us set a goal they think is attainable using their system, and the money raised will be used to purchase SOME NEW 21ST CENTURY FURNISHINGS FOR EACH CAMPUS.
One benefit to using Boosterthon is that much of the promotion of the event is done online so we can all share the request for support on social media and by email, which means we can garner support from friends and family far and wide!
INFORMATION LETTER FROM MRS. KINEL :
Dear Pope Francis Global Academy Families,
Please be sure to mark your calendars for the 3rd Annual Wolf Run that is being held on Thursday, May 23 at the South Campus and will once again be powered by the Boosterthon Fun Run.
Over the course of the next sixteen days, the school’s goal is to raise $30,000 to purchase some new 21st century classroom furniture for each campus. The Boosterthon Program officially kicks off TODAY online, and I encourage you all to please create your child’s very own Student Star Video and then forward it, along with your child’s pledge link to everyone in your email and text contacts, as well as everyone you know on social media. The more pledges that you can secure, the closer we are to our goal of new classroom furniture!
Parent Action Steps
Register your student(s) on FUNRUN.COM using the access code 753-576 or by searching for “Pope Francis” and the program will come up that way!
If you already registered your child(ren) last year, you can use the exact same login information; you can request a new password if needed.
Wolf Run Details
On Thursday, May 23rd beginning at 8:45 am, our North Campus students will be bussed to the South Campus to run/walk/skip/have FUN in their grade level bands as they participate in the third annual Wolf Run!
In the 30 minutes allotted for each grade level band run/walk, most students will run 30-35 laps (35 max).
The North Campus preschool and kindergarten students will return by 12:00 pm to allow for pick-up and rest times. If you need to pick up your preschooler earlier than 12:00 pm., please email Mrs. Riehle to let her know that you will be picking them up from the South Campus.
Preschool students who do not attend on Thursdays are welcome to attend the Wolf Run with a parent or guardian.
In case of rain, the Wolf Run will be held in the South Campus Gym.
Each classroom teacher will be reaching out to their parents to secure chaperones to help on the morning of the run. Your time commitment would be approximately two hours.
A hot dog lunch will be provided by the Parents’ Club so it is optional for the students to bring a lunch that day.

WHY ARE WE USING BOOSTERTHON?
Using Boosterthon was and idea brought to us by our Parents' Club two years back on the recommendation of several other schools in the area who have used them. They bring many years of experience helping schools to optimize their fun run fundraising, and they bring a ton of creativity and energy to the program. We used them last year with great success and are looking forward to their energy and creativity again this year! Please take a look at some of their experience:
DO THE KIDS STILL GET T-SHIRTS?
Yes! Between generous sponsorships and a boost from our Parents' Club, each student will receive a FREE gold and maroon t-shirt with the winning 2019 Wolf Run Logo, designed by our very own student - Jon Emperado! Please support our generous sponsors!
