Join us for the 10th Annual Cubcat CRAWL!

Each year, Cubcats Run And Walk for Learning to raise money for our school. The CRAWL is a fun, family-friendly 1.5- or 3-mile race and serves as the PTO’s largest fundraiser of the year. This year’s event will take place on Friday, October 14. The event begins at 4:30 and the race starts at 5:30. Invite friends, family, sports teams, neighbors, and even your mail carrier to join you in running or walking the race and attending the event. Save time and register for the event and purchase raffle tickets for the infamous Teacher of the Day drawings ahead of time online.
