This annual Jog-a-thon not only raises money for the Home & School Association to help fund things such as Teacher Benefits, but it also raises awareness of Physical Fitness and health.  Most of all, IT'S FUN for the kids! We encourage all the students to take part in a big or small way. No pledge amount is too small! Prizes are available for those who raise the most money and for the classes who have the best participation.  All donations are tax-deductible. For more information, please explore the links below.

This year’s event is dedicated to our guardian angel
Co-Chair, Mrs. Cherry Juarez.

SJDL Jogger Joust

It is that time of the year and we are excited to be able to keep this tradition going for our 11th Annual Jogger Joust Jog-a-thon! COVID protocols continue to be in place, but it won’t keep us from having fun!

Yes, of course the event will have to be a little different, starting with the fact that it will take place over 2 days this year in order to reduce the number of kids on the field at any one time.  The event will be held… 

Thursday, February 18 for students in Pre-school – 2nd Grade 
AND 
Friday, February 19, 2021 for students in 3rd - 8th Grade

The primary purpose of our school Jog-a-Thon is to promote regular exercise and ongoing healthy lifestyles. This is especially important this year in-light of the pandemic and associated challenges we have all faced physically, emotionally and/or spiritually over the last year. Though we have been fortunate to be able to offer full-time on-campus/in-person instruction for all of our students successfully thus far, this Jog-a-thon will be the only in-person school-wide activity that can occur this year. With that being said this program also serves to help us raise much needed funds to help keep the integrity of a safe and healthy classroom environment, including infrastructure improvements to our facilities, while also securing and expanding virtual technology resources.

Most of all, IT'S FUN for the kids! We encourage all the students to take part in a big or small way. No pledge amount is too small! Prizes are available for those who raise the most money and for the classes who have the best participation.  All donations are tax-deductible. For more information, please explore the links below.

COVID Protocols – Numerous running tracks will be provided in order to have one grade on the field at one time and the cohorts will stay together on their assigned running tracks.  All teachers and administrators will have masks on the entire time.  Since it is outside and students are continuously moving during the race they may choose to run with a mask on or off.  Once the 20 minute running event has concluded students will be required to wear their masks again.  All treats (previously quarantined) will be given out to each student when they get back to their classrooms so to avoid any congregating after the race.  Students are encouraged to bring their own full water bottles (with names on them) to the race to stay hydrated. 

Unfortunately, parents will not be able to attend on the field.  However, it is anticipated that you will be able to watch from your car in the parking lot adjacent to the Field of Dreams.

Grand Prize - The Grand Prize will be awarded to the grade that has the highest average of funds raised (total amount raised in the grade divided by students in the grade) and has at least 80% participation. 

Pledges – A minimum total of $50.00 dollars in pledges per student would ensure we meet our fundraising goal, but any amount of pledge is very much appreciated!  

  • Pledges are due by February 19 to count towards the Grand Prize and Free Dress. 
  • Grade levels with 90% participation earn Free Dress on Friday, February 26, 2021.
  • Joggers raising $150 or more in Pledges earn Free Dress on Friday, March 12, 2021.
