27th Annual Hapi-ness 5k
The Hapi-ness 5K race was established in 1987 by the 9th grade class of Laramie Junior High School, in memory of their classmate, Hapi Patterson, who passed away from leukemia later that same year. Since that time over forty-two families have received help with their medical bills.
This year, the proceeds will be used to help the Hockley family. Chris Hockley, a former student at LJHS, was recently diagnosed with cancer of the jaw and is now recovering from surgery. Chris’ mother, Donna Hockley, currently teaches at LJHS.
The 27th annual Hapi-ness 5K benefit race will be held on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at 9:00 am. The entry fee is $15 for a cotton t-shirt or $20 for a technical t-shirt. Packet pick-up is on race day and we ask that you arrive in time to get your race bib and shirt before the race begins. We will begin the race promptly at 9:00 am, so plan accordingly. Race day registration does not guarantee you will recieve a t-shirt. Registration deadline is May 2, 2014.
This year we are pleased to offer online registration for the Hapi-ness 5k. Please go to runnercard.com to register. If you prefer, you may download and print a registration form and mail it to the address below. Donations may also be mailed to:

After school tutoring is offered every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday that school is in session. It is from 3:00-4:00 pm in the library. Help is offered for every subject and students may arrange to work with an individual teacher if needed. Bus transportation home is provided to students who are signed in and parents need to go to the library if they are picking up a student earlier than 4:00 pm.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is sponsoring an after school SOAR program. All students are invited to attend. It is offered Monday - Thursday (on school days) from 3:00-5:30 pm in the teacher's lounge. It is a good way for students to make new friends, work on projects, and have fun in a safe environment. For more information call Brian at (307) 742-2227
