The school raised over $10,000 in last fall’s walk-a-thon and teachers now have access to those funds. As part of the “Inspiration” theme, teachers and students have brainstormed ideas on what inspires them to help direct where their class funds should be spent. Funding may be directed toward sports, arts and culture and involve things like field trips or enrichment experiences.
So far, classrooms have spent walkathon funds in a variety of ways:
Ms. Vacrinos JK/SK: paint materials for special art work ($80)
All JK/SK Classes: theatre performance ($720)
Mr. Lam & Mr. Mighton Grade 7/8: video camera equipment ($960)
