JYJ Virtual 5K Info!

Our annual JYJ 5K is scheduled to take place on April 25th. We informed you last month that a virtual community building event, with social distancing in mind, was in the best interest of our school family. We have decided to go ahead with our 5K and shift the intent from a fund-raising event to one that continues to encourage healthy choices and promote school unity.  

We hope that you will join us on April 25th by participating in the 5K by choosing running, walking or even doing jumping jacks in your living room! This event will look different for every family. Wear your Joyner swag or Joyner colors while participating and take photos to share on the Newsflash!  More details on sharing your pics to come! 

Please practice social distancing with whatever healthy practice you choose to make!  

Many of you have reached out asking of ways you can help our school and it’s community financially and we appreciate you! The 5K helps to fund the numerous PTA programs throughout the year that benefit every child. If you still wish to donate to the 5K as you would have done by registering your child or family, the Runner pledge link will allow you to do so or feel free to click here and donate any amount. For example, if you had wished to sponsor the 5K or send in money to your child’s Classroom Challenge you still can!  

Runner Pledge – https://jyj.memberhub.store/shopping/items/114243

Open Donation – https://jyj.memberhub.store/shopping/items/114244

Any amount is appreciated because we understand the toll Covid-19 has taken on our families financially.

Our school family is forever in our thoughts and prayers and we look forward to being together soon!
