Tech Trek - Mohr Tech Fundraiser

Friday, October 20, 2017

Mohr Elementary is trying to bring every classroom into the 21st century to enhance the learning experience for all our students. Our school is in critical need for technology infrastructure, classroom hardware, and technology curriculum. The Tech Trek is the largest fundraising effort for our school to raise much needed funds to support Mohr’s technological needs. Students will participate in a run-a-thon with their class on Friday, October 20th in hopes to raise the goal of $100 per student.

Volunteers Needed! - Would you like to volunteer during your child's class run/walk time at the Mohr Tech Trek on Friday, October 20th! Come and cheer on the runner/walkers and help tally laps. Please sign up HERE! Find your child's class and you will see the time slot to volunteer. Thank you for your support!
