Fun Run | Thursday, February 7th

  • Fun Run  ^ Click on the logo above to play 2 week promotional video. ^

    Parents! This year’s main fundraiser is the Mt. Pleasant Elementary Fun Run! It’s an 8-day program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on Tuesday, January 29th. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Fun Run on Thursday, February 7th. With our big goal of raising $18,000 for SCHOOL IMPROVEMENTS, we asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run and make it more profitable, easier, and fun. 

    Students will also experience an amazing character theme, Mind Spark Mystery Lab! It is a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) theme all about using character to solve problems. Students will enter into a mystery lab and learn all about character and STEAM!

    You can help our school by reaching out to sponsors, and then putting their donations on FunRun.com. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on your student at the Fun Run! Thank you for your support!
