Fun Run 2015

I want to congratulate everyone on another excellent Fun Run, the first of many to come for some and the last for others. No matter the age or experience level, all of our runners gave it their all and had a blast in the process. 

Of course we have to thank all of the parents who helped us out before, during or after the run and all of you who have given so generously to help us fund our activities for the 2015 and 2016 school year. We get a lot of questions about where the money we raise goes and what the PTO pays for (and we know not everyone is able to make our meetings where these details are discussed) so we will be coming out with a series of posts detailing all of the ways that you have helped Independence Elementary through your donations. We will also be posting our meeting minutes and 2015-2016 budget so please reach out with any questions you may have. 

Make sure you continue to check out our new IE PTO website,,  for pictures from the Fun Run and other events at Independence, as well as the information promised above.
