We hope you are getting excited and dusting off your running shoes for our own version of marathon, our annual St Ferdinand’ s Track-A-Thon It will be held Tuesday November 4th and Wednesday November 5th. The Track-A-Thon is a very important fundraiser for the school, its Technology program and Athletic Department. See the letter mailed to you in your child’s folders for details. Remember to return both copies of the pledge sheet to school by Monday November 3rd. The pledge form also serves as a permission slip. Students should wear their gym uniforms and gym shoes on Track-a-Thon day. In addition to helping to get pledges, your physical on-site help is needed to make our Track-A-Thon a success. That’s why we kindly ask you to volunteer on that day and will appreciate any kind of help. Come and be with us during this special event. It’s always a lot of fun ! See pictures from last year
