Students will ask relatives and friends to sponsor their efforts! We are asking for a $.25 minimum donation per lap walked or flat donations.
There will be many awards given to students who raise the most money, students who walk/run the most laps, and students who try the hardest! EVERY Walk-a-Thon participant will be recognized.

This funding is awarded based on the percentage of applications completed, NOT on the number of qualifying families. Please fill out the form here - it only takes a few minutes and everyone that fills out the application, whether you qualify or not, will automatically receive free Chromebook insurance, no need to fill out the Chromebook insurance form!
Parent volunteers are an essential component of our TWBI program. We appreciate the commitment you made to sign up for a parent committee and volunteer within the classroom. In order to volunteer, you must have completed the Volunteer Packet. If you completed a volunteer packet in a previous year, you are already in the system and are good to volunteer with teacher permission! If you have not completed the volunteer packet it is available at this link: Volunteer Packet. If you have any questions about your volunteer status you can check with Julia in the office.
