DATE:  OCTOBER 9, 2019 - Early Release Day


    TIME:  10:15 AM – 11:15 AM




    PURPOSE: The Move-a-thon promotes fitness and exercise while also helping to finance the field trips and events that the Washington School sponsors. This is a great fundraiser because we keep 100% of the profits! We are hoping that each family will raise at least $10.00 for the school. Thank you in advance for your support!


    HOW IT WORKS: On the above date, participants in the MOVE-A-THON will run, jog, or walk around the field as many times as possible during their time period. Younger participants will be monitored and will be strongly encouraged to walk.


    HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Each participant will be asked to obtain as many sponsors as possible to pledge either a specific amount for each lap completed (example: 25 cents per lap) or just a flat rate donation. (example: $10.00 donation) Please DO NOT let your children go to homes of people that you don’t know.


    PLEDGE SHEET: Each student has been given a sheet that will be used to keep track of their pledges. If you need additional sponsor pledge sheets, they can be obtained from your child's teachers.


    CLOTHING: Prepare your child to jog or walk for about 30-40 minutes. This means wearing appropriate clothing and sneakers or comfortable shoes.


    COLLECTIONS: In the days following the MOVE-A-THON, the participants will be asked to collect and turn in their pledges to their child’s teacher. All money should be turned in by Friday, October 18, 2019.


    OPT-OUT: If you do not want your child to participate in the MOVE-A-THON please contact the teacher or principal.


    VOLUNTEERS: If you want to volunteer, please contact the office. We will need volunteers to help count laps. You will need an approved CORI for this school year to help.
