The Einstein Otters Fun Run is Almost Here!

It's time for the Spring Fundraiser - The 3rd Annual Otters Fun Run!

What is the Otters Fun Run? It's an all-school, 30-minute fundraising and fitness event where Einstein students participate by running or walking around the school grounds, rain or shine. Every student will receive a free t-shirt and an Otter pop for participating.

How does this raise funds for the school? Prior to the run, students will be asked to get community members to sponsor their participation. Each student is asked to raise at least $50 to support the Einstein Elementary PTSA programs throughout the school year. Students can ask friends, family and neighbors to donate in person or online. The top earning class will receive a pizza or an ice cream party to celebrate all their hard work.

When does the fundraiser start? Fun Run Envelopes will be sent home with students this Monday, May 21 and should be returned no later than Thursday, June 7 to their teacher or the front office.

When is the actual Otters Fun Run? Friday, June 8 at 2:30 PM. Parents, siblings and community members are all are invited to come cheer on the students as they run to support our amazing school!
