Move-a-Thon 2020

Move a Thon 2020
This Friday, December 4 from 2:30pm – 4:30pm, students can pick up their Move-A-Thon supplies for the Move-A-Thon on Friday, December 11 from noon – 12:30pm. Please wear a mask when you come to school.

Students will receive their official Move-A-Thon shirts, pedometers and a fun surprise from Mr. O’Brien!

Bet you’re wondering how we’re going to be doing the Move-A-Thon if we’re all at home? The plan is that all Sand Point students and staff will put on their Move-A-Thon shirts and pedometers to start moving around their neighborhoods from noon – 12:30 p.m. (before lunch) on Friday, December 11. We’d like for them to take their photo on their school devices and upload them to Seesaw as well as their steps. Mr. O’Brien will be sharing these details as we get closer.

The Move-A-Thon is a fundraiser and our hope is to raise $12,000 to support the PTA (including PE and recess equipment for when we return to school, our Family Support Program, supplies, classroom grants, and more). This year, we are thrilled once again to contribute 10% of our fundraising to The Eli’s Park Project, where Sand Point families live and play. We are also donating 10% of our fundraising to Rainier View Elementary PTA’s COVID Response Fund. Information is being mailed home to each family with pledge forms and FAQs.

Here’s the link to collect pledges: Please forward it on to your family and friends to help us reach our goal!
