Each year St. John the Baptist Catholic School hosts a Jog-A-Thon in which the students actively participate to raise money for necessary school improvement projects. Since tuition only covers our basic operating expenses, the school relies heavily on fundraisers such as the Jog-A-Thon to raise funds for such projects.
This year's Jog-A-Thon takes place on Friday, March 19, 2021.
Our goal is to raise $45,000 to make improvements to our PE Program including upgrading our basketball/volleyball courts, perform field upgrades and maintenance and to purchase and all new PE equipment.
Money raised on previous Jog-A-Thons was used to complete our Makerspace (STREAM) Room. In this classroom, students in grades TK-8 are able to work using both high tech robotics and 3D printers as well as a variety of other hands-on materials including LEGO®, peg boards, and blocks to collaboratively solve problems. Jog-A-Thon funds have also been used to upgrade technology, expand the Music curriculum, improve the school library and student bathrooms, and install a large shade structure over the playground.
