  • Albany Elementary Fundraiser Highlights

    Posted by Ann Schultz at 10/18/2016


    Albany Elementary held its second annual Walk-a-thon on Friday, October 7. Students braved the cold and wind to dress as superheroes. There were six stations set-up including two bouncy houses and the 1/4 mile long walking track. KCLD provided music for our walkers to keep them moving! Our goal was $12,000 and students raised $19,023.01. The amazing support shown to our school is outstanding! The money will be used to pay for two field trips for each grade level, special guest presenters, and “extras” for our students. We are also saving to buy some bigger pieces of playground equipment.  

    The incentive for students, if the goal was met, was for Mrs. Schultz to sit in a dunk tank. There are pictures below of our walk-a-thon as well as the dunk tank event. 

    Thank you to all our parents and community members who generously donated to our very successful fundraiser!

  • Walkathon a Success!

    Posted by Sue Jenkins at 10/14/2016


    The 2nd annual Avon Elementary/PTA Walk-a-Thon was held on Friday October 7th. Students and staff spent the morning walking and participating in games to raise money for the PTA. Students raised $17,028.40 for our school in less than two weeks! Money raised through the Walk-a-Thon will assist classrooms by providing opportunities for field trips and classroom enhancements.


    In addition to these supports,  Avon PTA also has an ongoing project to purchase and build a new playground at Avon Elementary in the next few years. During Walk-a-Thon week, classrooms were rewarded by bringing the most money on various days to win, nacho, dilly bar, root beer float, and pizza parties! On Friday, October 14th, there was a name drawing to giveaway over 40 prizes to students raising $50 or more.  In addition, a pinata was broken by a group of students representing  the member of each class raising the most money. 


    Thank you to families and friends of Avon Elementary School for making the Walk-a-Thon a huge success!  Another great example of how deep our Purple Pride runs within our communities.  Thank YOU!!!
