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.
As a volunteer during the Walk-a-Thon, you must be a badged volunteer.

Select your teacher from the dropdown list.
Fill out all required fields and hit save.
Select your "Group" -- which is your teacher's last name.
