We're thrilled to kick off the school year with our 18th Annual Run for Knowledge on Friday, October 13, from 5:00 to 7:30 pm. This is our traditional back-to-school fundraiser that brings in critical funds for our school and welcomes families with a fun run and a great party.
If you are new to the Run for Knowledge, here's how it works:
This is a fun run, not a timed race. Registered participants gather at 5:00 PM at Wagner Park. The Run starts promptly at 5:30 PM. Race monitors direct runners along the course. Faculty and staff from all the schools greet our children with medals at the finish line. Then it's over to IS289 for a great party in the school yard from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM. Enjoy food, carnival games, Karaoke, face painting, and much, much, more. Everyone is welcome at the party, whether or not you have run!
Enjoy the ‘Middle School Student ONLY’ Activities!
In addition to the fun run and post-race food and festivities, each middle school student who registers for the Run will receive - in addition to their race shirt, number and goody bag - a wrist band entitling them to a FREE round of mini golf and pizza at Pier 25.
Registration is $25, please sign up to run and volunteer, today!
