Saturday, May 21st, Color Run Festival

The Latta Schools are sponsoring our Second-Annual Color Run Festival fundraiser to support student academics, activities and athletics. This will be a fun day of fitness, food and fellowship, highlighted by the chance for the whole family to participate in the Color Run/Walk! Half of the proceeds will offset expenses for athletics in grades 7-12. Remaining funds will be designated for teacher-created opportunities to enrich learning and activities within each of the Latta schools, grades pre-K-12. Last year's funds supported outdoor gardens and Montessori materials at Latta Elementary, project-based learning field trips at Latta Middle and a new video production class at Latta High. All our children will be winners when our community comes together in support of academics, activities and athletics!

Your family may support this activity in several ways:

We hope you will be a part of this community effort to support our schools! Please indicate your involvement on this form (CLICK HERE) and return it to any of the Latta Schools, with payment, NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, May 6th!!
