Friday was a fun day for the students at Oakdale’s four elementary schools as Cloverland, Fair Oaks, Magnolia and the students here at Sierra View had the chance to don their sneakers and T-shirts to participate in the annual Jog-A-Thon. Students collect pledges and earn prizes for the amount collected; funds help provide student enrichment programs. Teachers often join in the jog as well. Officials estimate around $200,000 was raised through the efforts of students at the four sites.
