A scene from last year!

DATE CHANGE: The 4th Annual “Walk Around the Block” Walk-a-Thon Fundraiser takes place on THURSDAY, October 9th (and NOT the 8th), 2014 from 2:00pm – 3:00pm.

We are gearing up for this year’s “Walk around the Block” event that is a part of the “Walk to School Day”, a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day.

Now in it’s fourth year, the GW Elementary School is turning it into a ‘Walk-a-thon” fundraiser for our school PTO. Call all of your aunts and uncles! Grandmothers and grandfathers!  Sponsor your child as they walk for their health…and GW projects on the horizon such as a natural playscape, 2014′s moving up ceremony, field trips and more.

The walk will take place from 2:00pm – 3:00pm. Parents interested in joining us will be asked to arrive and sign-out their child at 2:00pm – and so that they can leave for home when the walk is complete.

Sponsor forms for our ‘walk-a-thon’ were sent home with the children on THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 4th and must be returned to your child’s teacher by FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3rd. If you didn’t receive yours, please visit the school’s main office for a copy.
