This event is a fundraiser for our school. With your help, our kids will have the opportunity to show their school spirit and raise money for Hawthorne’s Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) curriculum — all while doing something fun and healthy!
Watch for pledge forms that we'll send home with kids via back pack mail after a Walk-a-Thon assembly on Wednesday, October 5th.
Please help your student collect pledges of any amount — even just a buck! — from neighbors, family and friends.
There are two ways you and your child can collect your your pledges:
- Filling out your pledge form.
- Logging onto the Walk-a-Thon's NationBuilder fundraising page.
On Friday, October 21st — rain or shine — students will walk with their class at Genesee Park. There will be prizes for students to get them interested and excited about raising funds for Hawthorne.
We're seeking 100% participation, so all kids and families can be part of a fun event that benefits our school. Bring completed pledge forms and donations to the main office or the classroom by Wednesday, October 19th.
If you'd like to volunteer by accompanying your child's class on the walk, setting up, cleaning up or helping with other activities on the day of the event, please contact:
Also check the Walk-a-Thon page for more updates.
