Walk-a-Thon: Thursday, March 30

Fairmont's Walk-a-Thon is Back!

Help us surpass our goal of raising $30,000!

2. Ask For Donations/Support:

Once you set up your page, it's time to let your community know and ask for support!

3. How It Works

The Walk-a-Thon will take place on Thursday, March 30 during school hours. Students will be walking around the grass field on the back of campus throughout the school day. Parents, family, and friends are invited to come watch from outside the fence on Eureka so you can cheer for our students.

4. Volunteer To Help!

In order for our Walk-a-Thon to happen, we need your help! If you are a badged volunteer with the West Contra Costa School District, you can sign up to help. We need families to help set up the different stations kids will walk through on the field, provide supplies such as snacks and more, be present during the Walk-a-Thon to manage stations (such as marking lap tallies on student cards), and to help clean up.

6. Walk-a-Thon Schedule on Thursday, March 30

This year we wanted to try to mix the grades a bit to give the students opportunity to participate with their Reading Buddies and other connections in different grade levels and to allow parents/family of other grade levels to watch at different times.

7. Spirit Week

8. Walk-a-Thon Watch Party

Join the Fairmont PTA from 8:45 AM to 11:15 AM for some snacks and coffee while you cheer your class and kids on! Look for the table outside the fence of the back field along Eureka and Lexington. Questions? Email us at PTA@fairmontschool.org

What Is The Walk-a-Thon And Why Are We Walking?

The Walk-a-Thon is a great way for kids to participate in an all-school activity together while also supporting our school.  Our goal is to raise $30,000 which will go to supporting our garden space and garden coordinator, Ms. Claire, as well as our enrichment programs, providing supplies for our school, and paying for community engagement opportunities.

On Thursday, March 30 students will walk from their classrooms to the grass field and walk, run, skip the perimeter of the grass. We will have various stations the students will go through to make it fun -- such as a bubble station, dance station, limbo station, and more. Students will have tally cards that will reflect how many laps they did. 

Parents/families/guardians are invited to cheer their kids on from the outside of the fence. Fairmont's PTA will be outside the fence with coffee and snacks -- stop by and say hi!
