Cleveland and NEW Montessori Walk-a-thon a Success!
The Cleveland Elementary and NEW Montessori School Walk-a-thon was held on Wednesday, October 2, 2013, with the 4K class walking on Thursday, October 1. This event was once again held in conjunction with “Walk Your Child to School Day”. The children walked an 8-block path along the fenced area of the school grounds three times, walking a total of 24 blocks. After their walk, students enjoyed string cheese donated by Sargento and bottled water donated by D and M Plumbing.
As a fundraising incentive, for every $20 that a student raised their name was entered into a drawing for prizes. On Wednesday, October 16th the drawing was held during the all school assembly and the winners were chosen. Prizes were donated by Cleveland School PTO, Cleveland State Bank, Bonde's Quik Mart, Lakeshore Technical College, Menchies, Subway of Cleveland, Lakeshore Cinema Cafe and Cleveland Wildcats.
With past proceeds, the PTA has sponsored the following: Lyceum programs, Class field trips, Annual school yearbook, Student Book Publishing, Author Visits, End of year program and lunch, School dance, Basketball, Soccer, Spanish, Pom, Volleyball and Wrestling clinics, Halloween Party, Movie Night, Exercise/wellness events, DARE graduation, Appreciation week for staff, School equipment, Birthday Books, Additional books for library, Digital Cameras for the school, I-pod touches for classrooms, Holiday Shoppe, Vision/Hearing screening, Classroom gatherings, Computer Lab equipment, Playground equipment, and extra memory for computers just to name a few.
This year, the Walk-a-thon has raised a total of $2,000 to use toward these and other programs to benefit the students.
