It's Walk-a-thon Time!!!!! We are so excited to announce that the 5th Annual WPS/WIS Walk-a-thon is Friday, May 26. It is a great way to raise funds for WPTC and our schools while getting the students outside and moving. This event serves as our WPTC spring fundraiser and the funds are used to sponsor all the amazing year end events happening at the schools (field days, 2nd/5th/8th grade celebrations, teacher/staff appreciation luncheons, etc.)
Parents - we are asking for your help in 4 ways:
1. Please return your child's permission form by Wednesday, May 17th. In order for your student to participate we need you to complete this form. This year the form is available online:
WPS permission and t-shirt form: https://goo.gl/forms/tOEWcJoWrJV4nQ4K3 - WPS
WIS permission and t-shirt form: https://goo.gl/forms/wzO2dKVt4Npbp9Rl2 - WIS
2. Please consider donating at least $10 for each of your WPS and WIS students and submit this pledge on the above noted form by Wednesday, May 17.
***In order to donate back more of the event earnings to the schools, we will not be purchasing event t-shirts for every student which has cost over $4,000 in the past. Every student who returns their permission and t-shirt form with a $10 pledge by Wednesday, May 17 will receive an event t-shirt.
You can pay this $10 pledge when you submit any other donations you have collected by May 26. However, we must have your $10 pledge and t-shirt information by May 17so we know how many t-shirts to order.***
3. Help your child collect donations from friends and family. All money will be due Friday, May 26 which is the day of the walk. We have some awesome prizes this year that we think the students will love - especially a ride to school in a police car or fire truck and tickets to a Chicago White Sox game . The prizes are listed on the attached forms.
4. Volunteer the day of the event . We will need volunteers to help with the classes and others to remain at each school to pass out refreshments. If you have children at both WPS and WIS walking in the afternoon staying at one of the schools to help pass out apples and water might be the best option. This way you will have the chance to see both children since each child will start and end the walk at "their" school but will enjoy their snack at the opposite school.
More details on attached forms. Thanks!!
We are very proud of how hard and focused our students were during MAP testing and are celebrating our successes with a school-wide pajama day! Wear your favorite pajamas and bring your favorite stuffed animal to school to help us celebrate! Please remember that clothing must be school appropriate. No slippers will be allowed.
As a farewell gift, the WPTC will be giving the 2nd grade students a WIS “Huskie” t-shirt for them to wear the day of the celebration and while attending WIS. If you have not already, please provide the WPTC with a shirt size for your child by Tuesday, May 9th.
