We are holding our annual WALKATHON this fall which is our primary fundraiser for the year.  One of our objectives in the Parent Club is to raise money to help cover costs such as classroom supplies, technology upgrades, storage solutions, books, field trips, parent/child events and other needed items for each class.

Current class leader is Mrs. Tindall with Mrs. Bohl not far behind! We are at 17% of our total goal right now. Our virtual learners also have teams! Mrs. Hoekstra, Mrs. Jeltema and Mrs. VandenBerg are your team leaders. They are really hoping to win a pizza lunch for being the top class. If a virtual team wins, you will have pizza giftcards dropped off to your home so you can enjoy a pizza lunch as well! Don’t forget, all who donate get put into a drawing for raffle prizes!!

We want to promote a healthy lifestyle to our students and the community.  Please help us reach our fundraising goal by supporting our Walkathon. We have teamed up with Get Movin’© to make this event fun and profitable with online mobile friendly technology!
