The Spy Who Loved Darnaby

The Spy Who Loved Darnaby

Darnaby. … James Darnaby.

Cue the spy music and get your running shoes out for the annual Darnaby PTA Jog-A-Thon next Friday, October 1. James Bond and his secret agents (the fourth grade class) kicked off today’s outside assembly to promote the event.

Students - grades pre-kindergarten, third and fifth – and families watched as the iconic James Bond theme music blared over the school grounds while a black Porsche drove onto the scene, eventually revealing a British??-sounding James Bond (aka Principal Chis Reynolds.)

He welcomed the classes to the assembly and began touting the annual fundraiser and many of the prizes students can win in pledges, although he admitted he didn’t understand some of the American traditions, like friendship bracelets.

Calling out his special agents, fourth graders dressed in black and wearing black shades ran onto the scene for their own spy-dance routine while “villains” behind them, stole orange cones before James Bond strode back onto the scene to calm things down. Shaken, but not stirred.

Each year, Darnaby PTA and leadership come up with creative themes to promote the annual fundraiser, which helps fund many of the extra activities the school does for the year, including some after-school events and classes, teacher grants and more. One year, the theme was dinosaurs and Jurassic Park; another year, the theme centered on the Marvel movie universe of superheroes, while another focused on Star Wars.

The Jog-a-thon will be held on October 1. Each grade’s participants will have a 5-minute warm up, followed by 25 minutes of jog time (10 minutes for Pre-K and 15 minutes for kindergarten) to complete as many laps as they wish. They will then be given 10 minutes of cool down and refreshments.

So see you next Friday. James Bond will return.
