2017 Fun Run
11th Annual Fun Run, Carnival & Auction
Join the fun at the 11th Annual Clayton Fun Run, Carnival & Auction on April 8th! This SUPER FUN event is for Clayton families as well as the community! The event kicks off with a Fun Run and then follows with a Carnival, Silent Auction and Live Auction. Please note that the the Fun Run and Carnival are PTA events, while the Auction is a school event. A link to register will be sent soon. Be on the look out!
We need SUPER PARENTS! For volunteer opportunities please click the link below
The Fun Run begins at 2:00 PM and takes place on the drive that surrounds the school. Students Pre-K (age 4) to 5th grade are welcome to register and gather in the faculty and staff parking lot in the front of the school, by their designated "heat". Pre-K & K runners line up at 1:45, and begin their run when the event starts at 2:00. The last heat is our 5th graders and all students may run as long as they wish, until 3:00 PM. Parents are welcome to run with the younger runners, but are otherwise asked to spread out along the entire race route, to cheer the runners on. Students receive "race incentives" as they complete each lap, to show off how hard they worked. Registration is required for participation.
Beginning immediately after the Fun Run, kids can enjoy gaga ball games on the softball field, carnival games, inflatable slides and attractions, pony rides, petting zoo, flash tattoos, face painting, trackless train rides, Eurobungy, rock wall, and mechanical swings. Participation requires purchase of wristbands (included in registration for Fun Run, but wristbands can be purchased separately).
A variety of food vendors will provide fuel for our students and families during the Carnival. Cash onlyY
The Auction is the school's biggest fundraiser of the year. The Silent Auction takes place in the Gym, which is filled with tables of items to bid on - including the always popular Class Baskets! Bid items range from products and services to gift cards and summer camps. The faculty and staff all participate in Teacher Buy-A-Spots (available two weeks prior) and Teacher Highest Bid items which are a must have for students. The Pick-A-Prize wall is a recent addition with limited, but guaranteed, prizes! There will be an Auction Preview on Friday Night as well.
The action and excitement of the Live Auction starts as soon as the Silent Auction closes! The offerings in the Live Auction are bigger ticket items and include priceless Clayton experiences such as the 5th Grade Graduation package and Reserved Parking in the main parking lot!
Auction check-out is for those with winning bids from both the Silent and Live Auction; Teacher Buy-A-Spots are paid prior to this event. Payments accepted are cash or check made payable to Clayton Elementary School.
