On Friday, the students from Mountain Green Elementary School participated in the fourth annual Walk-a-Thon. Each year, the PTSO sponsors this event in an effort to raise funds to help pay for school activities and field trips, school equipment, teacher needs, emergency back packs, library books, and many other things that would not be possible to have if it were not for the funds raised from this event.
During the Walk-a-Thon, the students walked a total of 8,876 laps. Many of the students received pledges from supporters who offered to donate certain amounts of money for each lap the student walked. The PTSO is hoping that these pledges will help them reach and exceed their goal of $12,000 this year. A big thanks to the parents and PTSO for helping support this event!
Last year, the Walk-a-Thon raised $12,678 that benefited the students at Mountain Green Elementary School in many ways. So far this year, $9,134 dollars have been contributed with more expected as pledges come in for student laps walked during this event.
