2015 Jog-A-Thon 

The much awaited 2015 Jog-A-Thon is on Monday, March 30th. In addition to a fun run around the track, this is our major fundraiser to support MVSA programs.

Our goal this year is to raise $100 per student, which is tax-deductible. The funds pay for programs not supported by the school district.  For example:

  • School assemblies
  • F.A.M.E (Fine Arts Mini Experience) programs
  • Computer Lab maintenance
  • Computer Technician
  • Disaster preparation supplies
  • Classroom supplies
  • Letter reward picnics and field trips
  • And many, many more.

Asking relatives, neighbors, friends and co-workers to donate will help maintain the quality of computing standards and educational programs that have become an integral part of Mission Valley. Donations can be made online at:

If your employer has a company matching program, we encourage you to participate, thereby doubling your contribution.

 Pledges are on a flat rate basis. K-3rd graders will run 20 minutes and 4th-6th graders will run 30 minutes around our ¼ mile track. They will receive lap marks every 1/8th mile.

 All Donations are due with the pledge form. So turn in the forms soon.


Prizes: Students participating in the 2015 Jog-A-Thon will receive one or more of these items:

1. POPSCILE: Everyone

2. Jog-A-Thon ribbon: Every participant.

3. WATER BOTTLE WITH BEAVER LOGO: Each student who raises $100 or more.

4. PAIR OF MOVIE TICKETS: Highest Earner in each grade.

6. ICE-CREAM PARTY: Highest Earning classroom, one from grades K-3 and one from grades 4-6.

We truly appreciate your continued support.
