Walk For Play – August 3, 2012

Argonne Elementary is proud to be hosting it’s first ever walk-a-thon – WALK FOR PLAY. Our event will take place on the morning of August 3 and all students are welcome and encouraged to participate. It will be an exciting day that encourages teamwork and raises funds for our school’s play structure. The students will walk and have an opportunity to socialize as they enjoy music and heathy snacks and games.

Each student will receive a donation/gift form in the weeks before the walk-a-thon, and can collect donations and gifts for walking. All proceeds raised will go directly to funding for our new play structure, which will be completed around August 15th, 2012.

Each student who gets at least $20 in donation gifts gets an Argonne Walk-a-thon Tshirt!
