Run-a-Thon

 Pledge online!  The Run-a-Thon is on!  

All students will complete as many laps of our track as they can during their P.E. class that day. Your sponsorship of a student runner will help us raise money for the PTA. This is the PTA’s final fundraiser of the year, so please reach out to your neighbors, grandparents, and other community members to sponsor a King runner!

Please check the calendar for the exact date! You can open the calendar here at this link:  www.mlkmiddleschool.org/calendar
