Dear Ridglea Hills Family & Friends,
We are so excited to kickoff Walkathon 2021!
What is Walkathon? It is an opportunity to build community and raise money for our school. We want every family to participate, and there are many options to do this. The Walkathon will take place on Friday, Oct. 1, 2021, at 8:00 am, and we want YOU to be there. Families are welcome and encouraged to join as the entire school takes a 1-mile walk around the neighborhood.
The month of September will be full of fun challenges and fundraising opportunities as we gear up for this day, and our goal is that students and parents will be excited to participate in a variety of ways.
You might be wondering what the money raised will go toward. Every year, the PTA selects the most pressing needs for the school which have in the past included: campus enhancements, technological upgrades, Fine Arts Day, literacy outreach, and extended learning opportunities, such as field trips. Your support is key in reaching our school’s goal of getting each student sponsored this year!
This year, our Walkathon theme is Hiking the Hills Together. After last year’s unusual circumstances, we want to celebrate being together this year. Every family that is part of our community is important, and Walkathon is a time to meet each other and get acquainted or re-acquainted with this wonderful learning community.
You can make a difference and support Walkathon’s fundraising efforts in 4 simple ways:
1) Walk – join us for the big event to Hike the Hills Together
2) Financial Sponsorship – check out what works for your family or business
3) Solicit – invite your friends, family, and neighbors to donate
4) Participate – join us at spirit nights, buy a t-shirt, visit the spirit shop, volunteer to help
Thank you for your support and commitment to making our school a connected community! Keep up with the calendar and follow us on our Facebook page: “Ridglea Hills Elementary School PTA”.
