All Star Dash
9/29-10/1 - All Star Dash
Please help the PTC raise $30,000 for our school!
For 2021-2022 the All Star Dash is our BIG event: the only major fundraiser for the programs, activities, and events supported by the PTC.
Our goal is $30,000 to fully fund all the traditional Student Enrichment and Community Events including programs like Art Literacy, Walk and Roll to School, and the All Star Reading Club, events like Family Movie Night and STEAM Night, and special funding requests from teachers.
Special Funding Request: Skateboarding! Ms. Cereda, WTV's PE instructor, has proposed getting skateboarding kits (boards, helmets, pads) to teach a unit in PE. Purchasing all the kits is a stretch for the PTC, but with your support we can do it. If we meet our goal of $30,000, we should be able to purchase the full set of kits by next school year, but if we raise $33,000, we can do it this year. If you think your kids would enjoy skateboarding in PE this year, please consider helping us reach our stretch goal!
Here are additional ways the PTC supports the school. We hope you'll consider helping to make the All Star Dash successful!

HOW IT WORKS: All students, Kindergarten through Fifth grade, participate in this fun event during their PE class with Ms. Cereda on Wednesday, September 29, Thursday, September 30, or Friday, October 1. Prior to the All Star Dash (now!), students collect donations (flat donation or per lap) with the pledge packet provided, or online using Pledgestar detailed below. On the day of their PE class, students may choose to walk, jog, or run with their class around the West TV track as many times as they can in 30 minutes. Since volunteers will not be able to participate this year, students scan a unique QR code on a lanyard for each lap completed into an iPad. The number of laps completed in 30 minutes will be recorded on a certificate and sent home the next day. A mile on the track is 6 laps. If you choose to pledge per lap, kids run on average 12-18 laps. Music is playing, STAR the mascot will hopefully be there to encourage students, and everyone has a great time getting exercise and raising money to support programs and events our students and teachers love!
