The annual Rattlesnake Run is a fundraiser relay sponsored by the Richardson PTSA in which a student needs to walk jog or run around a course on the Richardson field.
“I plan to run 26 1/3 laps,” said Seventh Grader Ashley S. before the run. The original date was supposed to be the eighth but was moved to the fourteenth because of rain.
The sponsors pledge money per lap. The money raised will go to the school. The money is used to fund PTSA sponsored programs such as the school talent show, field trip transportations, parent education nights as well as technology. If you collect at least ten dollars you are entered in a raffle for great prizes. A nice surprise is that the Dr. Mabery, Principal, announced on the RMS PTSA Eblast that the first four students with the most pledges gets lunch anywhere they want.
Students will wear their class colors at the run.
“Last year we raised $7,949.00”, according to the RMS Ways and Means Committee. This year, they hope to raise $10,000.
Be sure to turn in your pledges to your Sixth Period teacher by March 27th to be eligible for the drawing.
