Walk-A-Thon

When: Friday, October 19, 2018

Where: Jefferson School

What Time: 8:30am – 12:00pm

Get Ready to Walk

The Walk-a-thon is coming! That means the whole school gets a brief respite from the classroom, and we walk together around the block no more than ten times. The entire school community will be participating in this fun, festive event — teachers, students, parents, and guardians!

How does it work?

Students earn money by asking family, friends and neighbors to pledge an amount of money for each lap they walk or a flat amount. If each student brings in just one pledge of $1 per lap and walks all ten laps, the school gets about $4,000. Just think if each student brought in five pledges!

All pledge sheets must be turned in by the day of the Walk-a-Thon. Many people who make pledges will prefer to pay up-front. For the others, students will let them know how many laps they walked and will collect the money the following week. Every pledge helps, no matter how small.

Prizes

The classes with the highest percentage of students with pledges wins prizes. Every student who returns their pledge money by Friday, November 2nd will be entered into a raffle with great gifts that encourage physical fitness, like bike helmets, soccer balls, Frisbees and other fun prizes!
