This year's fun run brings all of the excitement, but at a later date than usual. Join us on Tuesday, October 1st when students participate in The Skywalker Sprint, an event to benefit Lukas Elementary PTA and its mission to support Lukas Elementary.
The Skywalker Sprint is our primary all-school fundraiser. In the past, proceeds from the run have been used for makerspace items, laptops, the Lukas marquee sign and many other purchases to benefit our school and children. Recently, money raised was used to help break ground on an new playground. This year, we will, once again, earmark earnings towards continued efforts to provide resources to support Lukas staff as they work to continue to improve the quality of education they provide students.
Run day is not just about the students. We encourage parent, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. to come out and run with your students. Don't feel like running? That's OK! We will have plenty of items available for you to be cheerleaders on the sidelines. Or you can make your own sign!
Runners will, once again, receive chipped bibs this year. ALL SKYWALKERS WILL HAVE SHIRTS AGAIN THIS YEAR! Shirts will come home the day before the run (don't forget to have your student wear them on October 1st!) and the bibs will be passed out at race time.

Lukas PTA and the 2019 Skywalker Sprint committee would like to thank our primary event sponsors: 3W Races and Farmers Insurance - Richard Seymour Agency
Last year, we earmarked funds to support Lukas' efforts to implement a MakerSpace in the Library/Media Center. Makerspaces are increasingly being looked to as a method for engaging learners in creative, higher-order problem-solving through hands-on design and construction. These spaces promote inter-disciplinary learning and knowledge, effectively dissolving the artificial barriers that schools create for subject areas by fostering curiosity in learning that will empower students to become creators and innovators.
A special thank you to our Prize Sponsors - Code Ninjas
