September 14th-18th NEW DATES September 21st-25th (During Gym Classes and Recess)

Students in Kindergarten through 8th Grade will be walking laps during their regular Gym classes the week of September 21sta fun activity to complement ITBS testing week!  Students and families are asked to use the form printed on the back of this note (make copies if needed) to seek pledges from friends, family and neighbors in support of our school.  A course will be set up on the field.  One lap equals 1/5 mile.  Students will walk during their regularly scheduled gym class, and will also have the option to walk laps during recess throughout the week. The gym will be used in case of rain.

  •  Each student who turns in at least $10 in pledges will receive an “Effort” key and entry into a prize drawing.
  • The students/siblings from each family that turns in at least $50 in pledges will be invited to an Ice Cream Party at the end of a school day in October (Date TBA)
  •  All proceeds from the Walk-a-Thon will be used toward updates to our school’s technology tools.
