Walkathon - Friday, October 26, 2018
Dear Families, Teachers, Staff & the Orange Schools Community,
Thanks to all your generous support, the 2018 GREATEST WALKATHON exceeded its goal and raised more than $27,000! All the money goes directly back into the schools and allows the Orange Preschool, Elementary & Middle School PTA to continue to provide the programming, activities and grants that benefit our children and community.
While we are over the moon to have exceeded our financial goal, we are most proud of the kindness our kids shared. You may wish to ask your child about his/her kindness pledge, random acts of kindness, and thank you letters to teachers and staff. Although the Walkathon is over, we hope everyone keeps up the great work and continues to make our school a kinder place!
It takes a village to pull off a huge event like this, and it would not have been possible without help from:
THANK YOU for your generous support!
- Parent Volunteers - Thank you to over 50 parent volunteers who came to help make this the best Walkathon ever! From “chalking” inspiration on the path to cheering on walkers along the way, you helped make the event so much fun!
- Teachers & Staff - So many classroom and special area teachers helped excite the kids and made the theme come alive during the school day. Thank you to the teachers for their support and for keeping the students engaged!
- Community Sponsors - Thank you to all the retailers in our community that generously donated resources and prizes to the Walkathon. Those include:
- Whole Foods Market for donating ALL the water, fruit and snacks for walkers to enjoy on the big day
- Heinen’s Grocery Store for donating two large banners to help market the Walkathon
- Math Monkey for donating drawstring backpacks for every student who participated in the Walkathon
