Dennis Chavez Elementary students are wearing their favorite color to school on Tuesday, Oct. 11, to kick off Spirit Week at the school.
The Panthers continue showing off their school spirit with Rainbow Day on Wednesday, Oct. 12, followed by Backwards Day on Thursday, Oct. 13, and then they end the week with a Jog-A-Thon Friday, Oct. 14.
The school hopes to raise more than the $30,000 they received from last year’s Jog-A-Thon. The fundraiser will be used to update technology, supplement the curriculum, add resources to the STEAM lab, provide additional classroom needs and student program support.
Dennis Chavez Elementary School is located at 7500 Barstow NE. Call 505-821-1810 or visit dennischavez.aps.edu to learn more about volunteering at the school or donating money to its fundraisers.
