This year’s Walkathon will take place on Friday, October 20, 2017, on College Day! Students can represent their favorite college by wearing a college T-shirt or sweatshirt.

Our annual Walkathon takes place on a Friday afternoon, at the end of the school day. All the students participate in the activity, regardless of whether they’ve done any fundraising. Kinders rotate between 6 field activities for an hour, and grades 1-5 walk or run laps around the school for an hour! 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 calendar for the date, and be sure to send your child to school with sunscreen, good running shoes and a water bottle!

We are also asking each student to collect pledges. All the money collected will go toward funding essential programs like Little Heroes, Schmahl Science, art, field trips, teacher supplies and music.  Students can start collecting their pledges TODAY! All pledge earners will be 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 Walkathon! This is a GREAT opportunity for you to spend a fun Friday afternoon with your Rock Star! Transitional Kinder and Kindergarten parents will be needed from 11:15am – 12:30pm and grades 1st – 5th will need volunteers from 1:40pm – 2:50pm. If you want to be a part of the Walkathon “Staff” please send an email to walkathon@wgepta.org or Sign up on Konstella.
