This is the image for the news article titled STPA to Host the 5th  Annual Spartan OlympicsGet ready to participate in this incredible school wide fun filled day. This year Spartans will be running for The Rio Grande Children's Home. A local nonprofit that provides a loving home, through foster care
and adoption, to children that have been abused and neglected. A guest representative from the RGCH will present to the student body on November 12, 2018.

PSTO is proud to continue the tradition of the 5th Annual Spartan Olympics, made possible by kind donations from our sponsors and student pledges. The day will be jam packed with fun and exciting activities. Kicking off the morning will be the one and only Ninja Warrior Abel Gonzalez for the pre run warm ups and motivational pep talk. The 5K will follow immediately. The 5K Run/Walk is open to all students, teachers, staff, parents and guests. We anticipate more than 600 participants. All runners will be given medals and top performers will be awarded special medals and prizes. More activities will be awaiting the students in the gym upon finishing their morning run as they cool off. A delicious and healthy lunch will be served to all (on us). The afternoon will be dedicated to the intramural friendly Spartan Olympic competitions between SAM teams in sports games such as volleyball, basketball, soccer, puzzle solving, and free fun zone. Awards will be given to the top 6 SAM winners. We will conclude the day with a special appearance from a local Olympian who represented Mexico in the 2018 Winter Olympics.

The goal of Spartan Olympics is multifaceted, we hope that it will continue to instill the importance and benefits of healthy life choices, teamwork, sportsmanship, philanthropy, and empathy.

Students and SAM classes will begin to compete with one another as soon as the Pledge drives go out. November 1st to November 28th. All students are required to donate a minimum of $5. Students are encouraged to collect above and beyond the minimum required. The more the students raise the more we donate to RGCH. Our goal is to secure 100% participation from all students and to collect at least $5000 to donate in the name of STPA to RGCH. Top 3 SAM classes will be invited to the Luncheon Bash in January, 2019. Top Student collectors will also be invited to the Luncheon Bash, and will have the honor of presenting the check to the RGCH representative.
