Jog-a-thon 2022 broke records!

Our Tigers were back in action, in person, and they came out roaring! Congratulations Tigers!

Take a look at our Tiger Spirit!

Why Jog-a-thon?

Aside from supporting continued efforts to provide excellence in education through students’ year-round enrichment programs (e.g., Math and Reading curriculum, Running Club, STEM Enrichment Programs, music and drama presentations, and more!), our annual Jog-a-thon is both fun and an opportunity for every student to get involved, to show their school spirit and pride.


Student sponsorship donations may be made by having your student(s) sign up or log in to our Student Portal at If you signed up last year, just log in and begin reaching out to friends, family, and even employers (many have matching programs) to donate. Please note, students will need their Student ID in order to sign up or log in. 

For anyone who would like to make a non-student donation (e.g., a member of the Sandburg community), feel free to use our general donation page at

Spirit Days

Please note that the Tuesdays and Thursdays leading up to Jog-a-thon are Spirit Days. Tuesdays are blue and yellow day, so wear your blue and yellow colors to show your spirit. Thursdays are themed dress-up days. This Thursday (4/21) is At the Beach Day. Show your school spirit by wearing your favorite beach attire. Wear that aloha shirt, board shorts, sunglasses, or a beach hat. Please note: no bathing suits and wear appropriate closed-toed shoes. Remember to wear your Jog-a-thon wristbands, too!

Warm-up Dance

Students will begin learning this year’s Jog-a-thon warm-up dance and with this video (, have fun and practice at home. A special thank you goes out to Mira Mesa High School Dance Team who so generously choreographed and filmed this year’s dance!



We have a lot in store for you and we are looking forward to working together to make this year’s Jog-a-thon the best one yet. We hope to have everyone participate, which is why it is important to have every student’s waiver form signed prior to Jog-a-thon. Please visit to complete your student’s form.


5th grader designs have been received! Now, the wait. The winning design will be revealed the Day Of Jog-a-thon when everyone receives their Jog-a-thon T-shirt. Stay tuned!
