Kids Tri

Join the POMS Triathlon Team and help raise money for our new Track (no need to try out, everyone can join)- Houston Texans Kids Triathlon May 21, 2017 at NRG

The Senior Division ages (11-15) will swim 200M, bike 6 miles and run 1 mile on at their race on Sunday the 21st. We will have team training to prepare your child!

Click this link to register for the race.

Don’t forget to list POMS as your team! Siblings and former students can sign up for our team as well. We will receive $10/participant (as long as we have a minimum of 10) in an educational grant back to our school. We will use $5/participant to help pay for our new track and the other $5/participant will go towards finding a cure for Giant Axonal Neuropathy (GAN).

Lexi Clark, a POMS 6th grader, has GAN. Her family founded the group Justin’s TRIumph in 2012, which works in partnership with the non-profit Hannah’s Hope Fund, raising money to find a cure for GAN, a rare, fatal genetic disorder. Children with GAN are typically in wheelchairs by age 12. They later become quadriplegics and require the use of feeding tubes and ventilators. Life expectancy for kids with GAN is only into their 20’s.

NOTE: Make sure you email Julie at sandjmalin@hotmail.com to tell her that you have signed your child up for the race as she will be sending out periodic updates about training and race weekend.

Box Tops Contest!!!

DON’T FORGET!! The grade/house that collects the most Box Tops by March 31, 2017 will win a party in April with food donated by Raising Cane and Anything Bundt Cakes. Place your Box Tops in a zip lock bag with grade and house clearly marked. Please check your Box Tops for the expiration date. Only unexpired Box Tops can be submitted and will count toward the contest.

Our school is participating in the Box Tops for Education™ program. Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help our school buy what it needs. Box Tops are each worth 10¢ and they quickly add up to real cash for our school. We are a long way from our current school year earnings goal of $1500 so PLEASE clip and submit those box tops. There is a collection box in the front office for your convenience.

To help our school, just look for pink Box Tops on products, clip them, and send them to school. Did you know you can earn BONUS box tops by downloading and using the Box Tops for Education Bonus App? Download the app and start earning free money for our school.

Thanks for your help!
