Announcements and Upcoming Otter Events



Sept. 26th
The 8th Annual Ordway Jogathon Fundraiser will be our BIGGEST fundraiser of the year! Last year, the kids had great, healthy time, and our Ordway community went above and beyond raising money for our PTO. Our fundraising goal this year is $25,000. Funds raised go to teacher grants, enrichment programs, student scholarships, and so much more!

All students participate by jogging or walking for 20 minutes. To celebrate their participation, each child will receive a special Jogathon t-shirt, along with class trophies for most laps and most packets returned. We would also like to recognize the students who bring in the most money.

New Student Prizes this year for most money returned!

First Place – $75 Calico Cat Toy Store Certificate
Second Place – $50 Bainbridge Cinemas Certificate
Third Place – $25 Sunshine Yogurt Certificate

To make an online donation, click Online Jog-A-Thon Donation and have your student write “online payment” and the dollar amount on the donation packet.

All money and packets are due Monday, September 22nd. 100% of the funds you raise goes directly to your PTO! Questions? Contact Torie Ritchie (viktoriaritchi@hotmail.com) or Heidi Hedges-Greenall (heidihedges@hotmail.com).
