For more than 35 years, the St. Jude Math-A-Thon, benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, has been America’s largest education-based fundraiser. To participate, students ask family and friends for pledges to solve math problems in the St. Jude Math-A-Thon Funbook, developed by Scholastic. Students who participate have fun while demonstrating their math skills. They will also be learning the importance of helping others and the mission of St. Jude Research Hospital. January 28th is Parkway Elementary St. Jude Kickoff. Students will be given a permission slip to be signed and returned to their classroom teacher by February 5, 2020.. They will receive a fun Math booklet to complete. All money (checks or money orders) made payable to St. Jude’s and is due by February 26th .
