Walk-a-Mile in their Shoes

Each year, the PTO sponsors a Walk-a-thon for its major fall fundraiser. Funds raised from the Walk-a-thon are used to fund many school programs, including:

·   bringing artists and authors to the school;
·   grants for teachers;
·   technology updates; including Smartboards and projectors 
·   music programs; and
·   playground equipment.

This year we will be donating 5% to Tom’s shoes which gives shoes to children in underprivileged countries. http://www.toms.com/ for more informa

Our students ask for community support by getting pledges from sponsors before the big event. On the day of the Walk-a-thon, students walk as many laps as they can in an hour time period around a ¼ mile track. This year’s event is FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7. Not only will the students be raising money for their school, but they also will get a chance to win some great prizes for participating.

If you would like to volunteer or have any questions about the Walk-a-thon, please contact Kristen Peterson at kdpete5@yahoo.com or Kristin Pease at kpease@columbus.rr.com
