14th Annual Jog-a-thon ~ Tuesday, February 12
“What is Jog-a-thon?” you ask? It is a fun 20 minute run around the P.E. track as parents and teachers cheer on the students and often run alongside them. As we celebrate heart health in February, the Foundation is also raising money to keep programs like Science, PE, Art, Music, and Technology at Park Village.
Jog-a-thon packets were sent home with students on Friday. Each class has a designated color, and students, teachers and parents alike will be encouraged to wear a shirt in that color (it makes it easier to spot each other and cheer them on as they run by!). Start thinking about who you can count on to support your child in the Jog-a-thon. Our online donation form will make it easier for family and friends to give to a worthy cause. Our school-wide goal is to raise $20,000!
Jog-a-thon Prizes and Incentives:
- STUDENTS WHO COLLECT $100 OR MORE IN DONATIONS will be entered into a drawing to win four DISNEYLAND TICKETS.
- STUDENTS WHO COLLECT $75 OR MORE IN DONATIONS will be entered into a drawing to win an XBOX ONE S, donated by Mira Mesa Auto Techs.
- STUDENTS WHO COLLECT $50 OR MORE IN DONATIONS will be entered into a drawing to win an OZOBOT EVO STARTER PACK, donated by Pacific Polo.
- STUDENTS WHO TURN IN THEIR ENVELOPES TO THEIR TEACHERS will receive a CALIFORNIA PIZZA KITCHEN FREE KIDS MEAL.
- TOP BOY and GIRL WHO RUN THE MOST LAPS IN THEIR CLASS will be entered into a drawing to win a NEW PAIR OF RUNNING SHOES, donated by Laces Running Company. All students who tie for most laps will be entered. Two winners will be chosen.
- IF THE ENTIRE SCHOOL COLLECTIVELY RAISES $20,000…
The top earners from each class will get to duct tape and silly string MR. MOSGROVE!
AND… The class that raises the most money will silly string their TEACHER!
A special thank you to our Jog-a-thon supporters: Laces Running Company, California Pizza Kitchen, Mira Mesa Auto Techs, Pacific Polo, Smart Solar, Eye Level, i-Ortho (formerly Moser Orthodontics), Christensen Realty Group, and Jen Howard.
Outdoor Classroom Update ~ 1/25/19
We had a great turnout for the first Outdoor Classroom build party last weekend. Six amazing planter boxes were built! In addition to building the planter boxes, we also touched up the handball wall poles. This is what the DADS Group is about: DADS with TOOLS building a legacy that our kids and future penguins will enjoy! Special thanks to Ryan Broley for picking up all the lumber and doing the prep work; and all the kids who helped with the build and campus cleanup.
Our next build party is on Sunday Feb 10, 8:00am to 12:00pm. Please sign up to help finish the poles, build a ramp, and possibly lay down some pavers. No experience necessary! Sign Up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e084ea9ae2da5f85-210

Double Your Donation with Corporate Matching
Thank you for your Golden Envelope Pledge Drive donations! We are halfway to our 2018-2019 budgeted goal of $150,000. Although our annual Pledge Drive has come to an end, we accept donations all year long. Your tax-deductible donation can easily be doubled with corporate matching. Check with your company’s Human Resources Department to see if they match employee charitable donations. You can also go to Matching Gift Search to find out if your company has a matching gift policy.
Acknowledgement letters for donations of $250 or more are being mailed soon, and serve as your donation receipt. If you require a receipt sooner, or for a donation of less than $250, please contact the Treasurer. Thank you for taking a few minutes to inquire about corporate matching. Imagine what we could do at Park Village with more!
At the Library:
- With a donation of $100… Mrs. Fleming could support Mrs. Burgstaller’s “No Place for Hate” program by purchasing the library books that we don’t already own.
- With a donation of $250…Mrs. Fleming could replace the small, worn out bookends with larger steel ones with magnetic bases (in fun colors) and refresh the library décor with a vinyl wall quote.
- With a donation of $350… Mrs. Fleming could buy approximately 23 hardcover books for the library, specifically “student choice” titles that the students wish we had. That in turn would free up other funds and enable her to purchase more books for other areas of the collection.
Outdoor Classroom / Learning Garden
Thanks to the hard work and muscle of our DADS Group, and funding from PV Foundation, there is a new fence up behind the kindergarten playground. This space is the location of PV’s newest project: the outdoor classroom / learning garden. Principal Mosgrove is working with a Master Gardener for design, planning, and implementation of the garden, as well as classroom lessons. 2nd grade classes have begun planting seeds. 3rd grade classes are growing milkweed and studying the butterfly life cycle. 4th grade classes will soon be learning about composting. Up next is constructing irrigation lines, installing a pathway into the area, and building raised planter boxes. We look forward to the upcoming months as the new garden take shape!
