Fun Run is here!
Come support the PTSA's many wonderful programs - and watch your child run his or her happy tail off - at this year's annual fundraiser.

This year, the PTSA is requesting a one-time donation of $150 per student (or $300 per family) to fully fund all of the wonderful programs people love about Peter Kirk (art lessons, musical instruments, great field trips, PE equipment, etc.)

All students receive the latest cool Peter Kirk T-shirt. There are also wristbands and free cupcakes to think about, as well as nifty raffle prizes . This year, each classroom that has 90% participation of envelopes returned wins a classroom prize. And the child who demonstrates the most school spirit in each grade wins a Fun Run sweatshirt and a Menchie's frozen yogurt party with Principal Garcia! How cool is that?! Get more details here . Or, print out a copy of the donation form here .
