Reindeer Run
On Friday morning (Dec 13) the Parent Teacher Student
Organization (PTSO) for the Frazier Park School
organized its annual Reindeer Run. The run serves as a
fundraiser for the services provided by the PTSO to the
elementary school. About 150 children participated in
two runs, one for Kindergarteners and 1st grade, the other
one for Grade 2 to 4. The idea is to sponsor a certain
amount (from 10 cents to $1) for each lapse of a
sponsored child or to make a flat donation from $5 to
$20. All in all the PTSO under the leadership of Stace
Gonzales-Watson and Robert Flores raised about $700.
The children had to run an outdoor course along the
beautiful school playground of around 1/8th of a mile. On
average Kindersgartners and Grade 2 to 4 accomplish
about 15 lapses in 30 minutes. On child was reported
running the course 27 times. Some of the
Kindergarteners and 1st grades were accompanied by
their parents, while Robert Flores did a tremendous job
encouraging the K 2-4 runners.
