|One of our most enjoyable events of the school year is our annual Walk-a-thon. Students and supporters of Juniper Ridge Community School join together to enjoy a beautiful walk and to raise funds to help support our school!
Who: All Students Grades 1-8
When: Thursday, October 8, 2020
Where: JRCSAll students will participate in the Walk-a-Thon! Students may ask people to be “sponsors.” Sponsorship is a single donation and will not be based on laps or minutes walked. You may consider asking friends, family, neighbors, business associates, local businesses, or any other resource to support your child in the walk.
All Students will receive a Walk-a-Thon t-shirt and the class that raises the most money will win an ice cream party!!
How can I get pledges?
Online: This year, we are excited to streamline the Walk-a-Thon fundraiser by going online and using a great platform called Walkstarter. You will be able to create pledge pages and reach out to friends and family by email and social media instead of going door-to-door, tracking commitments, and handling checks. For more information, please visit:
In Person: Students can also collect money and record pledge amount and the Donor’s name on the Pledge Form. Checks should be written to Juniper Ridge Community School. Pledge forms and money are due by Thursday, October 8.
All donations (online and in-person) are tax deductible. The school’s Tax ID is 45-518556.
Fundraising is a fun and essential part of growing our school. It helps close the gap between the core funding we receive and the actual cost of educating each student and meet the needs for a successful school.
Our goal this year is to raise $8,000. All the monies raised during this fundraiser go directly back to each student’s classroom to help fund field trips, activities, supplies, and classroom needs. All monies raised by staff will go to support staff appreciation, training, and team building. This fundraiser is especially crucial to our school this year as we are unable to accept supply and food donations or practice many of our normal fundraising efforts due to COVID-19 restrictions.
All students in grades 1st-8th will participate in this year’s walk-a-thon (regardless of pledges). Each student will receive a 2020 Walk-a-Thon t-shit and walk with their class (physically distanced from other classes) during their scheduled time of day.
It is fitting that the name of our school is Juniper Ridge Community School because only a community can come together and create successful events. Thank you for all you do!
