Project Details

Our school and community would benefit tremendously from an outdoor running track. Students could use it during PE everyday, families could use it in the evenings, we could use it for field days, and the monthly Monday Mile Meet could be done outdoors instead of in the gym. The 1/4 mile track will cost $60,000. So far we have raised $15,000. If we reach our goal we could be eligible for another $5,000 HEB bonus grant or possibly a $10,000 HEB bonus grant. Parents, thank you for your support! I really appreciate!

Partial Funding Plan

Any donations we receive will be added to our existing track fund.
