We raised over $11,000
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP
AND YOUR PLEDGES
We couldn’t have done it without YOU!
Our Cardinal of Oz Matoaka Walkathon was a huge success and we want to thank all of our Matoaka families for making it happen. Our goal was to raise $10,000 for programs, activities and school purchases and we reached over $11,600! We had a great day and lots of fun!
The grand prize winners for collecting the most pledge money are as follows (in order): Rhyan Granger, Mika Kenney, Parker Dunn, Sophia Liu, and Katherine Quinlan.
The class bowling party goes to Mrs. Knaul’s class for collecting the most pledge money, and the Matoaka Movie Night goes to Mrs. Ferrara’s and Mrs. Penny Smith’s classes, who tied for having the highest percentage of students who participated.
We gave away a lot of other great prizes and each student received a coupon for a free game of bowling.
The following classes will also have a “Popsicle Party” for being the top class earners in their grade following the grand prize classes:
Mrs. Forgit, Mrs. Smethurst, Mrs. Harmon, Mrs. Turner, Mrs. Erwin, Mrs. Freeland.
Virtually every dollar goes directly to the school in support of the children. In addition to financing the operating costs of the PTA, some of the many wonderful programs that are being funded with the WalkAThon include:
- classroom computer programs for reading and math (IXL Math, Brain Pop and Study Island)
- Student plays and shows
- Professional performances (Oliver Hill Story, Virginia Opera, Jack and the Beanstalk, Amadons Music & Dance Troupe)
- Field trips
- Critters and natural science exhibits for our new Living Wedge
- School garden and our local produce initiative
- Matoaka Dads Breakfast
- Family Fun Nights
- Teacher Appreciation Day
- Veteran’s Day lunch
- Upgrade and enhance the school’s sound system
Thank you for making the 2012 Matoaka WalkAThon a Huge Success!
We couldn’t do it without your support.
