The La Porte City Festival of Trails 5k Run / Walk is Saturday, June 15. This will be the second year we have used funds raised to award a scholarship to a student or students continuing their education in the field of teaching. Last year we had two students receive a $500 scholarship. This year we will be awarding one $1000 scholarship. We have been fortunate the last two years to do this, but the committee has a vision to award a $5000 scholarship in the future. As we continue to work toward that goal, I want to remind/inform you that the 5k takes place for 3 teachers that lost their lives while tenured. I have provided a link to read on behalf of those three teachers that committed to the Union Community District.

Festival’s 5K Pays Tribute to Three Special Educators

This race is very near and dear to our hearts as Peggy McIntosh is Mr. Parson’s wife’s mother. We hope you will take the time to consider joining us on this date as we celebrate the lives of three wonderful teachers gone too soon. If you cannot make it, I thankfully ask that you help spread the word if at all possible.
The registration form is in the following link or you can stop by the office and pick up a hard copy. Please let Mr. Parson know if you have any questions.
