Wilson Elementary School Raises Money and Awareness through Jr. Walk 4 Warmth
For three weeks, Wilson Elementary School students prepared for the third annual 'Jr. Walk 4 Warmth." The walk benefits people in Sheboygan County who have difficulty affording the cost of heating their homes in the winter. Leading up to the event, students celebrated warm scarf, sweatshirt, and sock day. Children could bring a dollar each Friday to contribute but the most important thing Mr. Andy Kautzer, kindergarten teacher and organizer of the walk wanted students to do was to think about and be aware that there are ways we can help others by doing something "4" them. It could be as simple as contributing a dollar. On Saturday, November 19, 201, Wilson School families participated in the Jr. Walk 4 Warmth. The event raised $1,500.00 All donations were sent to Wisconsin Public Service, which oversees the program.
