Jog-A-Thon

Jog-A-Thon is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Students collect pledges per lap and/or one  time donations to raise money for our school. The money raised goes towards  classrooms, technology, assemblies, large projects like the out door pavilion, and more.

Jason Lee students will walk or run on Friday, October 5th.

All Jason Lee students participate in the run that day whether they collect pledges or not. STUDENTS who bring in at least $50 in pledges get to participate in our COUGAR COLOR RUN on October 19th wearing awesome JOG-A-THON T-shirts donated by Metal Fab.

Our top pledge collectors and lap runners will receive Amazing PRIZES donated by The Reach Museum, WINCO, Circle K, Mid-Columbia Gymnastics, Mid-Columbia Ballet, Fall-
out Crossfit, Atomic Bowl, Tumbleweeds, Walmart, Little Caesars, Jamba Juice, Applebees, GESA Carousel, Pacific Science Center, Sun West, and MORE.

This year Jason Lee PTA is accepting online donations through the Jason Lee PTA square store. Select or enter the desired donation amount. At checkout enter the students name, grade, and teacher in the note to merchant.

Pledge money is due October 11th, 2018. Volunteers are needed for both these events to run smoothly. If you can help run the music, take pictures, mark lap cards, set up, clean up, or cheer on students while they run, please fill out the RSD volunteer form by October 1st so you can help. Sign up to help out.

Jason Lee Roller Skating Parties

$1 from every admission fee is donated back to Jason Lee! The entry fee is $5 for all skaters. This includes the rental of traditional skates. Rollerblade rental is $2 more.

This year PTA members can bring their purple Jason Lee PTA discount card to get one free skate night admission with traditional skates. Rollerblade rental is $2.

At each skate night there is a contest to see which class has the most students present. The class that wins receives free pizza and pop that night. Come and join the fun!

Our first skate night is:
September 26th

The skating parties are held at the Richland Rollarena Skating Center, 849 Stevens Dr. Richland.
