Dear Families and Friends,
St. Michael-St. Gabriel is once again pleased to kick off our “Footsteps with God” Walk-A-Thon fundraising campaign! This event, which spans the course of one month, is our annual fundraiser for our school. Contributions made to our Walk-A-Thon help to offset and cover the cost of several activities and enrichment programs and projects for our students, in addition to providing upgrades and additions to our classrooms and campus.
Beginning next Thursday, and most subsequent Thursdays leading up to our Walk-A-Thon, we will have one Walk-A-Thon dress down day each week. The money collected by students on these days will go directly toward their individual student goals and will also contribute to their class and overall school goals. As always, it is our goal to have 100% participation from every student in the school. No contribution is too small, and every donation is greatly appreciated. Our goal is to raise over $20,000 this year. Last year we raised just over $16,000. Specific incentives will be announced at today’s pep rally, including school, class, and individual prizes. Remember that any amount of money our students and their families can contribute goes directly back into the school, benefitting all 350 students.
This year’s Walk-A-Thon will be held on Friday, October 11th. If you have any questions about this event, or if you would like to volunteer to help, please contact the main office or our PTA president, Mrs. Karen Purichia. Remember that all volunteers must be Safe and Sacred trained to volunteer.
