Sespe Cougars Getting Ready to “Walk their Paws Off”!
by the Sespe Parent Club

For the past 2 years walkers from Sespe Elementary School walked to raise money. On Friday, February 20th, they’ll lace up their shoes once again for Sespe School’s 3rd Annual “Walk Your Paws Off” Walkathon organized by the Sespe Parent Club. Over the last 2 years our students have raised enough money to donate $5000 toward the installation of our brand new playground equipment, purchase plants to help beautify our school (and get a mural painted!), donate funds toward the purchase of A.R. prizes to help motivate our students to read, and more! For our Walkathon this year, we will give prizes for the 3 students who receive the most pledge money, for the student at each grade level who walks the most laps, and for the class that raises the most money – a popsicle party! We have music and snacks, and each student receives a Walkathon water bottle. It’s a great event that focuses on helping our school community, getting some exercise and being healthy.

This year’s goal is to continue to raise money for the beautification of our school, to purchase needed supplies such as books, and to get our school garden going so the students can get out and do some hands-on science! If you’d like to donate, please make your check payable to Sespe Parent Club (100% of the donated money goes directly to Sespe School). If you have any questions call Sespe School at 524-6161.
