To The Daily Sun,
The Inter-Lakes PTO would like to invite the community to join us on Sunday, Sept. 25, for the annual Walk-a-thon & Fall Festival at the Inter-Lakes track.
This is not only the biggest fundraiser for the PTO, but it also a day of fun for all and a time of great community building. All proceeds from the event go to provide educational opportunities, supplies, and trips for the students of the Inter-Lakes School District.
For those of you unfamiliar with the event, students ask for donations from families and friends in return for walking around the track at the event. We provide free food, games, raffles, and more. All of this is done with generous donations from local businesses that help with monetary donations as well as items for multiple raffles.
This year there are a few things we would like everyone to know, even if you and your family have attended the Walk-a-thon in the past. Instead of prizes at the end of every lap around the track, students will receive a ticket. This ticket can then be used to play a variety of games, in which we will have a prize table, similar to a carnival event. Tickets will also be available for purchase at five tickets for $1.
The Inter-Lakes School District has worked hard over the past few years to go "green" and in support of that mission, every student that brings a refillable water bottle to use for the day will receive an extra ticket to use at one of the activities.
We also decided this year to not give shirts to those who raise money and bring it to the Walk-a-thon. We believe the entire staff and student body at Inter-Lakes Elementary and Middle Tier deserves a shirt. We have an amazing school, and we want everyone to show school spirit and pride. Students and staff will get their shirts on Friday and we ask that they all wear them on Sunday to the Walk-a-thon.
We hope to see you all Sunday, Sept. 25 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Inter-Lakes track.
The Inter-Lakes PTO
