Jog-A-Thon

Hello Everyone,

Eastwood’s “School of Rock” Jog-A-Thon is fast approaching! On April 11th, 2018, our students will run/walk laps for 30 minutes to help raise money for our school.

Donations raised will help support and enhance your child’s experience at Eastwood. The proceeds from this year’s Jog-A-Thon will be used to purchase musical instruments.

We believe that all students love music. Our goal is to provide a way for students to foster the love of music by providing students with the opportunity to interact with a variety of musical instruments used in the contemporary music industry (guitar, ukulele, drums, bass guitars and keyboards).

We can be one of a handful of schools in the country to provide exposure to a side of music not currently offered at the elementary school setting…and become Irvine’s first School of Rock. Our goal is to raise $23,000! We encourage your child to reach out to family and friends that are both near and far. Many corporations/employers will also match employee donations to organizations such as the PTA. All donations are tax-deductible.

Parents, you should receive the following form in your child’s folder on Friday, March 23rd. Please fill them out and return to the class. Below are the digital version.
