Walkathon

rockertiger

Each year, the PTA hosts the Rockathon to raise money for classroom enrichment programs. It’s the one PTA fundraiser in which students get an opportunity to raise funds themselves.

This event usually takes place on a Friday afternoon in October, in conjunction with College Day, when students can represent their favorite college by wearing a college T-shirt or sweatshirt.

All students participate and get some exercise, regardless of whether they’ve done any fundraising. Kinders rotate between six field activities for an hour, and grades 1-5 walk or run laps around the school. The goal is to walk a 5K (10 laps around the school), but there is no special prize for completing it. Everyone gets a small prize for participating.

Check the school calendar for the date, and be sure to send your child to school with sunscreen, good running shoes and a water bottle!

Pledges

We ask students to collect pledges. All the money collected goes toward essential programs like Little Heroes, Schmahl Science, art, garden, field trips, teacher supplies and music. Keep an eye out on Konstella and the Tiger Folder for details on how to pledge.

All pledge earners are entered in a weekly raffle where they can win amazing prizes! The earlier they start collecting, the better chance they have to win!

We also need volunteers the day of the Rockathon! This is a GREAT opportunity to spend a fun Friday afternoon with your Rock Star! Keep an eye out for requests for volunteers on Konstella.¬† If you want to be a part of the Walkathon “Staff” please send an email to walkathon@wgepta.org.
