Walk-a-thon Wind Up

The walkathon is over, and we want to thank all of our students, teachers and parent volunteers who participated and helped the children walk safely on such a beautiful October day!  We would like to thank Dr. Jenkins and the school band for playing for our walkers, adding to the fun and excitement of the day, Linda Roeger for designing the banner, and the folks from Nike who helped the students make the most of their time outside.  Thank you to all of the students who sought pledges to sponsor you for your walk-a-thon, and please remember to thank the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends and neighbors who sponsored you and for their support of our school – because of your efforts and their generosity, we raised over $29,000.00!
