It’s time for the TWINBROOK FUN RUN!
The Twinbrook Elementary School PTA sponsors this event each year to raise funds for ALL field trips for Grades K-5. We count on support from all parents, teachers, and students to make it a success. The Twinbrook Fun Run brings students, staff, and families together to have FUN and encourage healthy, active living.
During the Fun Run, the children will run around a track outside for 20-25 minutes. (Inside the Gym in inclement weather.) Twinbrook dad Ricky Davenport-Thomas will serve as deejay and emcee, spinning great music to keep everyone pumped up. We’ll need a big cheering section, so we hope to see many of you come to watch and volunteer! This event, from entertainment, decorations, and planning, relies entirely on Twinbrook parent volunteers. Details on volunteering will be available soon.
Our fundraising goal is $12,000!
Why $12,000? Each grade takes two field trips per year. Each field trip costs $500 – $1,000. We encourage each child to raise $50 or more in donations. That’s 5 friends donating $10 each or 10 friends donating $5 each.
