The PTA hosts the Walk-A-Thon each year to raise money for classroom enrichment programs. It’s the one PTA fundraiser in which students get an opportunity to participate.


The Walk-A-Thon is from 9:10-10:10. We are encouraging all our Tigers to run or walk as many laps around the campus as they can. It will be a festive activity and a great way for our students to make a healthy and positive contribution to our school! The money raised will go toward funding Music, Art, Schmal Science, and other essential programs. 

Prizes for levels of participation include: 

  • All students will receive a snack “prize” (nut free) immediately following the Walk-A-Thon
  • $50 raised earns the student a Free Dress Day
  • $125 raised earns the student a Golden Tiger Paw for the Student Store
  • $250 raised earns the student a $25 Hicklebee’s Gift Certificate
  • $500 raised earns the student a $50 Gift Certificate to Willow Glen Creamery 
  • The 3 classes with the highest student participation (regardless of dollar amount) earn a popsicle party and a $50 Lakeshore gift card for their teacher
  • The student that raises the most money earns a $100 Petroglyph Gift Card
