The Loomis Basin Education Foundation’s (LBEF) 11th annual MandaRUN is quickly approaching. This amazing event features both a 5K run and a half-marathon. Be sure to mark your calendars for Sunday, November 19th. Let’s lace up those running shoes and show our Ophir Spirit by supporting LBEF and the Loomis Union School District. Please visit www.mandarun.com for registration information. The registration deadline is 3:00 pm on November 18th. Same day registration (for the 5K only) is also available on November 19th.
In addition, the MandaCUP is the annual school spirit component of MandaRUN. Each year, the school within the Loomis Union School District that is responsible for the most MandaRUN registrations, as a percentage of the school’s enrollment, will take home the CUP, and bragging rights, for the year. Please select the school you would like to represent on your registration, and help them take home the CUP. Let’s earn back-to-back recognition as the MandaCUP winners!
Our KCRA Kids Can Food Drive is underway until November 9th. Please help out our community through donations of non-perishable food items. Items may be donated to your child’s classroom or to the main office. Thank you in advance for your support!
Our annual book fair is quickly approaching. From November 13th-17th, students, parents and families will have the opportunity to browse a wide selection of books. We encourage everybody to visit and pick up some great reading for the holidays!
Have a great weekend!
