Walk-A-Thon

We are getting close to our annual Walk-A-Thon Event!  This is our single money raising activity for our Parent Club.

We have set a goal of $25 for each child to raise….and understanding these tight economic times, know that we will take pennies, nickels, dimes and any amount you are willing to contribute.  The money we raise goes for the support of family/child activities as well as all school events and materials that support learning in many ways.

The walking times and color assignments are as follows:

  • Wednesday, September 29th: 9:45 – 11:15:  Morning ECSE, PK, K, 3rd, 4th and 5th Grades
  • Thursday, September 30th: 1:45 – 3:15:   Afternoon ECSE,  Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Grade

COLOR:

  • Grade PK/K and ECSE:  RED
  • Grade 1:  PURPLE
  • Grade 2:  YELLOW
  • Grade 3:  BLUE
  • Grade 4:  GREEN
  • Grade 5:  ORANGE

Our goal is for ALL students to participate and strive for a personal goal of raising at least $25.   Students who collect over $25 will win a special prize!  They will also be entered into a raffle for even more exciting prizes!  If our class raises more money than any other class, we will enjoy a pizza party!  Everyone will receive water and a snack (nut-free and milk-free) for participating!
