The Event:

From Monday, May 17th through Sunday, May 23rd, students participated in the Roy Cloud Jog-A-Thon. Our theme was “Roy Cloud Strong”. This is a favorite event of the year and was our last chance to raise money for the PTO! Students in grades K-8 collected pledges from family, friends, and neighbors, based on the number of steps they took during Jog-A-Thon week. Students logged their steps daily with this step tracker and, from May 24th-26th, submitted their steps to win a prize. 

All New Scavenger Hunt:


There was also a new scavenger hunt this year following the walking school bus routes. Along the Blue, Orange and Green routes, the Jog-A-Thon committee placed individualized 12″ x 12” tiles for the students to find. The goal was for each student to find the tiles, record all of the words on the tiles and submit them. Record every tile on a route and enter the raffle for a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card (contingent on raising at least $25 for the school). Each student could submit one entry for each Route he/she/they completed, up to three entries per student! Download and print the scavenger hunt tracker. Also, check out the complete scavenger hunt guidelines for specifics. 

Event Specifics:

  • Each student, whether on campus or at home, will be given a step counter for the week of the Jog-A-Thon (we will also accept steps from Fitbit, Garmin, vTech, Apple watches, and any other trackers as long as you can provide proof of steps).
  • Students will walk, run, skip, hike, and jog during that week to collect as many steps as possible. At the end of the week, students will have to log their steps in this Google Form. Student winners will be asked to show proof of steps so make sure to take a photo of your step counter!
  • All entries are due at the end of the day on Wednesday, May 26th. After that, students are welcome to keep their step counter as a commemorative keepsake.
  • We will have an additional scavenger hunt following the Blue, Orange, and Green walking school bus routes. Students (and their families if they so choose) must find as many stones as they can and record the words on the stones in this Google Form. Find them all in a single route and enter for a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift card (contingent on raising at least $25 for the school). Each student can submit one tracker for each Route he/she/they complete, up to three entries per student!
