Walkathon 2021

Walkathon 2021

Welcome to this year’s Walkathon which will be held on Friday, October 8th. Please ensure students arrive at school by 8:45 a.m. Every child’s participation is required as this is a planned school event, meant to benefit us all. Students in Grades 1-7 will walk approximately 10K and Kindergarten will walk approximately 5K. All monies raised will go towards our Playground Renewal Project and General Building Fund.
After the walk, ALL children will be dismissed from their classrooms no later than 12:00 p.m. Kindergarten students will be dismissed from their classrooms by 11:30 a.m.
Parents are welcome to walk with their child’s class or be crossing guards at specific points along the route. Please do not bring younger siblings, baby strollers or pets.
Dress for the weather: Comfortable shoes and layers of loose fitting appropriate clothes are best. No uniforms are needed on this day. Students may bring hats, sunscreen, windbreakers and a small snack (water bottle) they can carry. In case of rain – only pouring rain – the students will participate in a “Walkathon” in the gym by grade. If weather conditions are uncertain, the school will send out a school newsflash in the morning so that parents will know their participation is not required. In all cases, school will be dismissed at 12:00 pm.
