On Friday, October 1st 2021, the Royle PTO will be holding its first annual Walk-A-Thon. This will be the big fundraiser for the fall and we are hoping with everyone’s participation this will be our best fundraiser yet!
During school on Friday afternoon (10/1) the staff and students will walk around the school yard for about 35 mins to honor all the pledges they’ve received and also to show their support for Royle School! Parents are welcome and encouraged to come cheer on the students and teachers!
There will be 2 ways to participate in this Walk-A-Thon.
Students can collect pledges for their efforts in walking. We will not be collecting pledges per lap, only a fixed dollar amount to show support for the Walk-A-Thon. A packet will be coming home with each student with the pledge form and weekly envelopes to send in any cash or check pledges received (checks payable to Royle PTO) and/or you can use this link below and collect pledges electronically. Your child’s team is their classroom teacher.
Any dollar amount pledged is welcomed and appreciated. All students will participate in the Walk-A-Thon regardless of how many pledges they have received.
Parents can purchase signs that will be displayed outside at school on the day of the Walk-A-Thon. The signs will have your message printed to show support for a student, a class, or to show support for the entire Royle School. The form to purchase a sign is in the packet of information that came home with your child.
Prizes will be awarded weekly based on total pledges per classroom. The more pledge money received the better the prizes! We sent home 3 envelopes for the 3 weeks we will be collecting pledge money and we ask that the kids bring back the envelopes weekly to be eligible for the weekly prizes! There will also be special prizes awarded at the end of the walk a thon to the top 3 earning classrooms!
We are so excited to kick off this Walk A Thon. Let’s work together to make our 1st annual Walk-A-Thon our best!!
Parents are welcome to join us on Friday to cheer on your child as they walk around our big field for the Walk-a-Thon (see times below)…and wear your Royle blue and white to celebrate! If you have a child in grades K-2 and would like us to dismiss your child directly to you at the end of their walk, please let your child’s classroom teacher know so we have them ready with their belongings.
Grades 3-5: 1:00-1:45
If your child is in our ELP, we will be having our ELP students do their mini walk-a-thon on Thursday 9/30 at 1:00-1:30. All ELP parents are welcome to join us on the field during this time. We will dismiss your child directly to you at 1:30 from the field.
