Walk-A-Thon is coming!
Calling E.H. Greene Superheroes!! Our annual Walk-A-Thon fundraiser will be held Thursday September 26, 2019. Your student will be receiving their packet at school on Tuesday when we kick-off our pledge drive! Money raised through the Superhero Walkathon goes to support the school including Arts Alive, Aviation Station/STEAM bus, teacher appreciation lunches, field day, playground upgrades, and teacher/school gift requests. In addition, this year, we will be donating 15% of our proceeds to Sycamore Bridges, a non profit organization that directly serves individuals and families in need in our district!
Students can earn prizes by collecting monetary pledges! We've got amazing prizes this year including: EH Greene Carnival tickets, Rhino’s Frozen Yogurt & Soft Serve, Dave & Buster’s, Kenwood-Mariemont-Esquire Theatres, Dart Dash and more! Every student who collects $100 will receive an EH Greene AVES T-shirt!
We are asking for healthy snack donations for the day of the event. Please watch for the signup to donate apples and/or oranges (small easy to peel) on the day of the event!
Look for your student to bring home their Superhero Walk-A-Thon packet that includes additional information and sponsor sheet on Tuesday, 9/10. This year we will be using an online platform in addition to paper packets to make collecting pledges easier! You can check out the site and register here: https://pledgestar.com/ehgreene
