Move-A-Thon is Nearly Here!

SPE Squirrels are on the Move!

Sand Point Elementary’s 4th Annual Move-A- Thon is October 24! Last year we raised over $20,000 to complete the Playground Project. Students moved and ran over 3,000 laps, totaling almost 420 miles! Ms. Withrow’s class repeated as K-1 champs and Ms. Herr’s class was the 2nd-5th trophy winner. Let’s try and top that this year!

Pledge Forms      Online Pledge Form            Facts


The process is simple. Students will ask people for pledges.A pledge is a single donation and not based on laps or minutes walked. Pledges are from folks who agree to donate money for your participation in the Move-A-Thon. They may be friends, family, neighbors, and parents’ co-workers or business associates.  Cash or checks made out to “Sand Point PTA,” can be collected.  Please have each sponsor sign up and collect the donation immediately! 100% of the donations will benefit Sand Point students and donations are tax deductible!  Students turn in their sponsor sheet and money on the morning of the event, FRIDAY, October 24 by bringing both to school and GIVING THEM TO THEIR CLASSROOM TEACHER.

The Move-A-Thon will be held at school during the afternoon of Friday, October 24. The Move-a-thon will be held OUTSIDE the building on the playground. The students will be grouped by grade level (K-1 and 2-5) and will get 20 minutes to walk as many laps as they can.  Students will gather in the gym at their assigned time and will be given instructions on where to do and how their laps will be tallied (for prizes). More information about the logistics of the day will be given the week of the move-a-thon.
