Whale Walk Fundraiser


 

What is it?

 

The Whale Walk is a ‘fun run‘ and fundraiser all in one, with NO PRODUCT SALES! The kids will participate in the Whale Walk October 7th, during lunch recess. For 20 minutes they will run, hop, limbo, slow motion, skip and more while having a great time with classmates. This year, more than 95% of the funds donated will go to PTA and back out to our many school wide programs. In order to continue to support our current programs and invest in future PTA sponsored activities, the per student goal is $75. Just think, if you get $5 from 15 different people, you have met your goal! EVERY dollar helps. 


In the past few years the Whale Walk has been so successful that we've been able to fund additional Wish List items for the school! Last year we collected over $46,000 - Wow! When we go beyond our goal, the PTA has been able to fund "extras," and in the last few years alone this has included 2 carts of Chrome book computers to supplement the computers provided by the district (teachers have been very appreciative of these and they are used regularly!), classroom tables used for small group instruction, the digital Reader Board which keeps families in-formed of upcoming events, a storage shed for the school's court-yard.



How you can help


You can help your child obtain donations from sponsors. Before the Walk, friends and family are encouraged to ‘sponsor’ your child by donating to the Cedar Wood PTA. Funds go to PTA general fund, which is used for online math help, the kindness club, art docent curriculum, assemblies, field trip sponsorships, etc. Also, we will need a few parents to help out that day. 



To help your student collect donations use the Sponsor Form and envelope that was sent home to collect donations. Check out the back of the sponsor form for tips. All donations are tax deductible. Upon request, receipts will be issued for donations more than $25.
