Due to COVID-19 restrictions at this time, we are unable to hold this event for the 2020-2021 school year.
Calling All March for Mars Volunteers!
October 9th: Centennial School (at the MAC)
October 10th: Primary Center (field in front of admin)
October 11th: MAE (Doc’s Way, behind MAE)
The PTO needs lots of volunteers to keep the kids on course, keep their water cups and bottles filled, and to cheer them on as they March for Mars! In addition to volunteers on the day of each school’s “march,” we will need a handful of parents to assist with prize sorting and distribution on Monday, October 7th.
If you would like to help the PTO run this terrific fundraiser and see your kids and their classmates in action, please use the appropriate “SignUp” link below.
Note: Each school has a separate Sign-Up page. If you have children in more than one school and wish to participate with each child, you will need to use more than one link.
Please remember to have your license scanned. If you have any questions, please contact the March for Mars coordinator or the appropriate building representative:
Jessica Randall (M4M Coordinator) – firstname.lastname@example.org
Julie Walker (PC) – Julieashleywalker@yahoo.com
Melissa Gulnac (MAE) – email@example.com
Rachel McMichael (Cent) – Rachelj1104@outlook.com
