Patton-Around-The-world-t-shirt-logo-isolated (7)Mark your calendars! Our Around the World Fun Run is happening on Friday, Feb 2nd! Let’s RUN, RUN, RUN to support technology at Patton. All over the district there is a shortage of resources. Patton is no exception. We find ourselves with a significant budget shortfall, which if not alleviated, will result in the loss of technology instruction support for our students. We need you to help fill the gap. To reach our goal of $30,000, while also encouraging fitness and community spirit in our students, we are having our inaugural fun run! What you need to know:

Fun Run

All students participate. Here is the schedule.

  • Pre-K, Kinder, and 1st 8:30 – 9:30 AM
  • 2nd and 3rd 10:00 – 11:00 AM
  • 4th and 5th 1:30 – 2:30 PM

Kids will try to complete up to 15 laps (3 3/4 miles total). For the younger kids, after each lap they can collect a glow in the dark wristband, the older kids will run 2 laps per prize.

Each student and teacher will receive a free fun run t-shirt courtesy of the Patton PTA and Austin Screen Printing.

You are welcome to just come cheer on your athlete too. The kids would love a crowd!
