Thanks to all who participated in the 2nd Annual Walk a Thon at St. Rose Philippine Duchesne School, September 17-21.   All students participated in the walk a thon on the school fields during gym classes and lunch recess throughout the week.  Together, the students walked nearly 1,400 MILES!  Congratulations to Mrs. Frese's 5th Grade who received the Golden Shoe Trophy for walking the most miles as a class - 223.9 miles (1,119 laps), and to Matthew W. who was the top walker schoolwide.  Matthew walked 91 laps for a total of 18.1 miles!

A total of $2,450 in pledges were received, which will be used to fund the project of remodeling the school lobby restrooms. Students who collected at least $50 in pledge money (as a family) were invited to a special Ice Cream Party, held on October 18th, and those who collected at least $10 in pledge money were entered into a prize drawing which was held at the party.  Congratulations to Kindergartener Harris E. who won the top prize in the drawing - a $20 gift card to Toys R Us, and to the three winners of $10 pizza gift cards: 6th Grader Adam H., 4th Grader Evan O., and Kindergartener Nora S.  Several other students won smaller "goodies" in the prize drawing and everyone who attended the party received a frisbee and St. Rose cup.
