9th Annual Cubcat CRAWL

The Cubcat CRAWL is just around the corner on Friday, October 29th. You can register for the race, purchase food and beverage tickets in advance, purchase “Leader For A Day” raffle tickets, and get all of the details on the official race website. In keeping with the PTO’s “No Sales” fundraising efforts, there is also a link for you to send to family and friends to invite them to support your child’s Student Sponsorship goal.

Are you thinking that you’re “just not a runner”? No worries! I promise that you will still have fun at the CRAWL! There’s so much to do that doesn’t involve running, walking, or even crawling:

  • Dress up in your Halloween best and compete in the costume contest
  • Cheer on the runners and walkers
  • Eat dinner
  • Let your kids play on the playground and dance with the DJ

If you have any questions about the CRAWL, please reach out to the PTO at
