The PTO is thrilled to announce plans for our annual walk-a-thon fundraiser happening on Friday, October 15th! The day starts with an all-school walk around Lakeville North High School track (next door) and then continues with each grade level walking the track for ~30 minutes. This is a wonderful opportunity to support Lake Marion because it allows our students to make a visible contribution to their school, build community, and have fun all while raising money for our school and encouraging healthy exercise habits!
Our goal this year is to raise $20,000 (~$75 in donations per participating student). Your generous donations will help fund school-wide enrichment materials and programs such as School & Teacher Grants, Staff Appreciation, I Love to Read program, Activity Day, and so much more!

Volunteers are needed (and appreciated!) for the walk-a-thon! Please signup here: www.lakemarionpto.com/volunteer
- Goal Incentive: Mr. Domstrand and Mr. Jarvis have agreed to dress up as forest animals and race around the track on teeny tiny trikes (or scooters and bikes)!
- Any Donation Incentive: Students that bring in a donation in any amount will be entered in a drawing to win “Principal for the Day”.
- Early Bird Incentive: Students will receive a small prize for turning in their donation form by Tuesday, Oct 12.
Families are welcome and encouraged to join their students during their grade-level walk time! Everyone is invited to wear their favorite LME/Lakeville Spirit Wear for the walk-a-thon! Here is the walk schedule so you can plan your day:
