Run for the Green - Jog-a-thon 2012

Birney parents, kids and teachers love the unique, whole child approach to learning Birney provides. All totaled, a librarian, Spanish, art, and IB certification and training cost $75,000 per year or $150 per student. These funds are NOT in the budget for Birney for the 2012-13 school year. Only successful fund raising efforts will preserve the things that make Birney a special, successful, high achieving school.

Birney’s 5th Annual Jog-A-Thon, on March 16th, hopes to raise $25,000 to help pay for these programs for the 2012-2013 school year. Just $50 per student will help us reach our goal. For the next two weeks, please help your child collect donations from family, friends, neighbors and businesses with the sponsor forms sent home last week. If you need additional forms or envelopes contact or download forms at

Prizes will be awarded for:
Students who raise $35: a FriarFit jump rope.
Students who raise $50: a special edition T-shirt.
Students who raise $75: museum passes!.
Students who raise $100: restaurant and store gift cards.

Classes who raise the most money will win pizza parties! Classes that collect the most sponsors will win otter pops! And whoever raises the most money will win an iPod Nano!

And teachers, the Friend’s of Alice Birney Elementary is thinking of you, too! We have great prizes for your efforts as well: spa gift cards, deluxe chocolate gift packages, restaurant and store gift certificates, and much more!

Let's do this together!!!
