Coyote 2018 Color Run

Only 3 more days until our 2018 CRRE Coyote Color Run!   

Our yearly school-wide fundraiser, the Color Run, is on Thursday, Nov. 8th. Thank you to all of you that have already sent in donations or have collected pledges! This fundraiser supports many school needs including: classroom projectors, performing art assemblies, playground equipment, family events, instruments, and more.

That’s right - 100% of what is raised will go to our school. We hope you will help out by supporting this fun and healthy activity! We are currently at $6,364 in donations (not including pledges).
