Laps 4 Leadership

Thank you to the entire community for totally ROCKing this year's jog-a-thon! 

We are excited to officially share that the 2017 Laps for Leadership event has brought in over $34,000, far exceeding our goal of $25K!

Individual and class prize notifications were sent home in purple folders on Thursday 10/19, so please look out for them.  And, the top 10 earners will be turning Mr. Ball into one giant, messy sundae on Friday, November 3rd, in front of the entire school!

What is Laps 4 Leadership?

Our 12th Annual Laps 4 Leadership fundraising fun run is an opportunity for our community -- friends, family and business -- to support Eagle Crest students as they run to earn money for our school. And a great opportunity for our students to practice the 7 leadership habits and work as a team to reach our fundraising goal of $25,000. Children can reach out to members of our community--friends, family, and businesses--to support them as they run laps around the outside of our school. 

Not only is this a fun day, but it is the PTO's ONLY direct fundraising event of the year. The success of this event means you will never be asked to sell magazines, chocolate, wrapping paper or anything else. It also means that we need each of you to help to make Laps 4 Leadership a huge success!

Students will be eligible for prizes including silly hat day, a dance party and even a limo ride with Principal Ball! Read about where the money goes here.
