2nd Annual Walk-a-thon

Thanks to all who supported the 2nd Annual St. Rose Philippine Duchense Walk-a-Thon last week during gym classes and recess periods.  Special thanks to Ms. Swann, Mrs. Amy Wunderlich and Mrs. Kelly Sonntag who helped make the event a great success.

In total, our students walked 6,833 laps last week - that's 1,367 MILES!!  Each student will receive a special button that lists how many miles he or she walked.  And, students who walked at least 10 miles will receive free dress down day (details TBA).  

For fundraising, we had a total of over $2,500 in pledges!!  These funds will go a long way to improve the appearance of the restrooms located in our school lobby. For those who submitted pledge forms, the completed forms were sent home with a total amount due and collection envelope earlier this week.  Please remember to turn in the pledge money tomorrow, September 28th.

Once the pledges are all in, we will announce which students have qualified for the prize drawing incentive, and also the ice cream party!

If you have any questions, send us an email or call Kelly at 830-3323.

Thanks again for your support!
