- Turn in all donations on or before Feb. 22. This is a FUN event and every student must turn in a SIGNED PERMISSION SLIP in order to participate with their class. Even if you did not collect donations, please sign and return the pledge form/permission slip.
Remember, all students that participate will receive a participation TIGER TAG! The student who raises the most money and the student who runs the most laps from each class will be presented with an exclusive Tiger Tag and will be announced at the Morning Assembly!
