The Walkathon on the first Friday of October is the PTSA-Fall Fundraiser. The money raised from Walkathon covers the bulk of the PTSA's working budget for the year. We use this money to pay things not funded by the state or district, such as: classroom aids, teacher training, curriculum enhancement (field trips, school events, class materials …), family nights, staff appreciation, and many other activities that benefit our children. 

How does it work? Students collect pledges for the event and then on Walkathon day, they walk as many laps as they can. After the event, kids and parents collect money from those who pledged and either pay online, or turn in checks to the PTSA mailbox in the work room at school.
