Walk-a-thon

In an effort to raise funds for our school, on Friday, October 8th, we are going to have a walk-a-thon. This is a great way to not only raise money for our school but also get outside and get some exercise. It also allows teachers and students the opportunity to have fun together while doing something to benefit our school. Our goal is to raise money to purchase items for our students and our school.


Last week, we sent home information about collecting addresses from friends and family members. Students should return these address forms by Friday, September 3rd. Once the sheets are turned in, you are done! It is that SIMPLE! Thank you so much for your efforts!
