OAK POINT GLOW RUN

Parents! This year’s main fundraiser is the Glow Run! It’s a two-week program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on October 29.  Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Indoor Glow Run on November 8.  Check out this FLYER for full details.

Students will also experience an amazing character theme, MINDSPARK MYSTERY LAB! Boosterthon’s most exciting theme yet combines S.T.E.A.M skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building. While they're teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to solve mysteries, our students will learn five 21st-century character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.

Donations will go toward Student Experiences and to the entire two-week experience. So please help our school by reaching out to sponsors. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on your student at the Glow Run! Thank you for your support!
