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!
