Students are NOT required to raise funds. ALL students are welcome to participate in the Walk-A-Thon on Friday, March 29th. Students will have a chance to begin their laps with their class during the school day, and they are welcome to continue walking after school as long as they are accompanied by an adult. Students can earn prizes regardless of whether they collected pledges. All families are welcome to join the event after school is dismissed at 3:00pm.
Ambos programas (Right At School y Beyond The Bell) han acordado acompañar a sus estudiantes a la Walk-A-Thon. Todos los estudiantes que participen tendrán acceso a refrigerios saludables gratis mientras caminan y podrán ganar premios.
Your child can return their envelope to their teacher by March 26th. Or, if you prefer, you can bring your envelope directly to the front office. Finally, if you’re planning to collect some last-minute pledges, you can give your envelope to a PTA board member at the Walk-A-Thon.
Envelopes can be returned to classrooms until March 26th. After that, you can return the envelope to the front office or to a PTA board member. Pledges (cash, check, and online) will be accepted through Friday, March 29th.
Funds raised by the PTA are used for library books, field trips, assemblies, and more! This year, the PTA has provided funds for teachers to not only purchase classroom supplies, but also for additional educational materials, prizes to encourage learning, and fun projects.
Additional funds have been allocated for field trips and assemblies. Field trips this year included a trip to The Tech Interactive, Palo Alto Art Center and a visit from Sager Family Farm to figure out what’s the big buzz about bees, and there are more trips to come!
El Walk-A-Thon es nuestra mayor recaudación de fondos del año, y es el único momento en que le pedimos que se comunique con amigos y familiares para ayudar a apoyar a nuestra escuela. Puede usar el sobre que llegó a casa con su estudiante para cobrar efectivo o cheques, y también puede cree una página para su estudiante en 99Pledges. Cada contribución nos ayuda a alcanzar nuestra meta.
Si hace buen tiempo, la ruta para caminar será un circuito alrededor del campo de hierba al lado de la escuela. Si llueve mucho, cambiaremos a una ruta alternativa debajo del alero del campus de Monta Loma.
¡No, los niños son libres de tomar tantos descansos como quieran! Pueden tomarse un tiempo para descansar, comer, conversar con amigos y luego volver a caminar.
Students can earn a medal for achieving their lap goal. For TK – 1st graders, the lap goal is 30 and for 2nd – 5th graders it is 50.
Tickets will be given every 5 laps (ex. after walking 5, 10, 15, 20 laps etc).
We have so many to list! They include tickets to the Exploratorium, Bay Area Discovery Museum, SF MOMA, SF Zoo, Squishmallows, Lego sets and more! Come by the raffle prize table during the Walk-A-Thon to see them all!
Pizza, perros calientes, algodón de azúcar y bebidas estarán disponibles para comprar después de que termine la escuela. También habrá bocadillos gratis y un dispensador de agua para que los niños rellenen su botella de agua.
Yes! Kids will write their name and classroom number on their prize drawing tickets. If they aren’t present when the winners are announced at the end of the event (5:45PM), their teacher can give them the prize at school the following week.
