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.
