This year your child will be participating in an event called Rocket Rush for PTEF. A 1-mile course will be set up on school grounds for each student to run/walk. The goal of the event is to promote fitness and to support the Perry Township Education Foundation (PTEF). A registration form for the Rocket Rush will be coming home soon.  Although registration is not required to participate, all funds brought in will go to the PTEF organization.  PTEF is a grant making organization that uses its funds to support innovative and creative programs to enhance learning throughout Perry Township Schools.
