Our 12th Annual Walk-A-Thon will take place during the school day on Thursday, September 27th, rain or shine. The Walk-A-Thon is an exciting opportunity for students to raise money to benefit our school, simply by enjoying a walk on the school track with their friends and teachers! Students will collect pledges from family members and friends in the weeks leading up to the Walk-A-Thon, with a promise to walk at least one mile as a thank you for their support. Students will have the chance to earn prizes based on the pledges that they collect, including gift cards, gift baskets, and more!
The Walk-A-Thon is one of our leading fundraisers, and all of the money collected goes directly back to our students and staff at EH Greene. Last year, the Walk-A-Thon raised over $25,000, and we would love to do that again!! Please consider supporting this great cause by sponsoring your child and seeking the support of those around you. If you are interested in volunteering to help with Walkathon, please email Megan Lee (firstname.lastname@example.org),or Kathy Mercurio (email@example.com). Additional information and pledge envelopes will be coming home with students next week on September 13th.
Also we will be giving back to our local community by collecting GENTLY used adult and kid shoes(*no cleats or dance shoes*) to Cincinnati's Freestore FoodBank 'Back on Track' program. A shoe collection bin will be in entrance starting next week.
Just a reminder about changes in dismissal plans
