Move-A-Thon – Friday, May 29th…SAVE THE DATE!

Mark your calendars for the Lawton Move-A-Thon on Friday, May 29th.

Get your student excited to move-it, move-it at the annual Move-A-Thon! This year’s celebration of getting out and moving will serve as a fundraiser for our new playground.

For families new to the school or for those who have not been able to come for the fun, the kids move as much as they can, walking, jogging, and having fun around the course while being supported by the whole school community. This year students will get pledges from family, friends, and neighbors and then they’ll bring their body to move it! More information about volunteer sign-ups, business sponsorships, and pledge instructions will be provided after spring break. 

Mark your calendar now because this is a wonderful event to volunteer at, see our students in action and meet may new people!
