Melrose Stars
Get Ready to Run With Heart

The 8th Annual PTO Jog-A-Thon is On! Now is the chance to tell family, friends and neighbors all about our amazing public school and to request their sponsorship! Please encourage them to support your student(s) and all the wonderful programs we make possible. Our goal this year is to raise $75,000 and we need everyone’s help to achieve this. All donations are tax-deductible.

To create a donation page to share visit:

It’s super easy to collect donations on Pledgestar or you can download this form online. Envelopes were sent home before the holidays but also available in room 14.

Practice Runs with Coach Andy will be held every Wednesday from 7:30-8:00am on main yard .

To volunteer your time PLEASE sign up here. We’ll take whatever time you can spare—30 min, 1 hr or half a day! We need an army to make this run smoothly!
