What is the Tiger Trot?
Tiger Trot is a favorite day of the year for both students and parents. It is also the PTO’s only major fundraiser. Students raise money through pledges and donations and then spend part of the day on OCTOBER 11 walking or running the track with friends, classmates, and even family members. It is one of the most motivating and energizing days of the school year!

What is this money used for?
Tiger Trot is the primary source of funding for all of our amazing PTO programs. In addition to funding the annual PTO budget, 2019 Tiger Trot proceeds will be used to fund new lighting in the Auditorium. This new lighting will benefit all school assemblies, tech club, chorus/concerts, cultural awareness events, science fair, and V-show just to name a few.

How can my student participate?
Help us reach our $35,000 goal by collecting pledges/donations.

All students will get a t-shirt and run/walk in the track-a-thon event regardless of individual funds raised. However, we are encouraging a target fundraising goal of $75 per student.
