County Line Fun Run — November 9th

Every year, the PTA sets a goal of raising funds for the various initiatives and activities that the PTA sponsors. This year, we asked the experts at Boosterthon to power a Fun Run and make our fundraising easier, more profitable — and more fun!

The 9-day program kicks off with an all-school pep rally on Tuesday, October 31. Families are then asked to gather pledges for each lap your student runs (approximately 30 laps) during the County Line Fun Run that will be held on the playground field Thursday, November 9.

During the two-week program, students will experience an amazing Character Counts! theme, Castle Quest. This English castle theme is all about being brave and living with character. On their quest to regain Bravemore Castle, students will learn the “six virtues of a true hero” from a cast of colorful characters.

The County Line pledge site is now live. Parents can log on to (school code 439856), register students, learn more about the program, create student star videos, and start soliciting pledges. Please help County Line school reach our goal. Thank you for your support!
