WALK-A-THON

Please join us on Friday, October 13th, 2017 for our annual walk-a-thon!  We are excited about this fun, PTO-driven fundraiser!  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 ~30-40 minutes at designated times. This is a wonderful opportunity to support our school because it allows our students to make a visible contribution to their school, build community, have fun, and encourages healthy exercise!

Our goal this year is to raise $23,000 (~ $40 per student).  Your generous donations help support/supplement many programs at Lake Marion.  100% of the proceeds will be used to support Lake Marion Elementary (field trip transportation, student directory, student scholarships, Presidential Fitness Awards, 5th Grade Graduation, Fine Arts Assembly, Scholastic Book Fairs, February “I Love to Read Month”, Bingo and Baskets, and Activity Day). 

To motivate the kids and generate excitement about this fundraiser, our Principal has agreed to dress up in his favorite overalls and KISS A PIG!! if we reach our fundraising goal!  Additionally, all students will receive one ticket for bringing in a donation of any amount.  For every $20 donated on behalf of the student, he/she will receive an additional ticket.  The tickets will be put into 2 drawings:  a grade-level drawing in which one student from each grade will win “Lunch with the Principal” and a school-wide drawing in which one student will win “Principal for the Day”.  

Volunteers are needed (and appreciated!) for the walk-a-thon! You can sign up here:  Walk-a-thon Volunteers.
