Hedke WALK-A-THON combines fitness and fundraising!
Hedke school's annual Walk-a-Thon was Thursday, 9/27. All 505 students marched around the school to earn funds for the Hedke PTO. The PTO uses this money to pay for all of the school's field trips, assemblies and special purchases like our buddy bench and water bottle refill station.
The PTO also sponsors many fun activities and events throughout the year like the Fall Family Picnic, Trunk or Treat, and Spring Carnival.
Every student in the school received a t-shirt - with each grade having their own color - whether they raised money or not. Students will wear these on field trips and spirit days throughout the year.
The PTO decided to change from the traditional candy or wrapping paper fund raisers several years ago to make the event more student and fitness centered.
We appreciate all of our families who participated and helped our PTO raise money to support the mission of our school!
