PTA Walk-A-Thon

UME Walk on the Wild Side Walk-a-thon

September 28th-Friday will be our annual Walk a Thon at Uinta Meadows.  We are so excited to announce our theme… Walk on the Wild Side!!  The money we raise at the walk a thon allows the PTA to do wonderful things at UME.  Things we have done in the past:  Books for our students, maps painted on the playground, skis, popcorn machine for parties, money for gotchas for the students, more books, tin whistles, bouncy houses and so on.  It also helps pay for our yearly activities (Moms and muffins, Dads and Donuts, Literacy Night etc….)  We look forward to your support this year.  This is the school's main fundraiser.  Let’s make it great!!

Your child will be getting an envelope for donations for the Walk a Thon.  We are asking the students to ask family and friends for donations, but we do not want them going door to door.  Students will have the opportunity to earn prizes based on the donations they receive.  We have some fun things this year. Bouncy house party, Lunch with the principal, Throw pies at the principal, Jungle Animal eraser, Animal Pens, Sequins Snakes, Silly String a teacher, T-Shirt, and a for the top earners.  Donations need to be turned in on or before September 28th, the day of the Walk a Thon.  Checks can be made out to UME PTA.

As a school goal we would like to bring in $1000.00.  If we reach our goal students will get to duct tape our PTA president, Josh Anderson, to a wall!!!  

EVERY student will participate regardless if they collect donations or not.  We are asking that parents send a note with their student if they DO NOT want their child to participate.  

Please make sure your student wears appropriate footwear, clothing and sunscreen.  If they would like to wear camo that would be great!  There will be fun “Jungle” stations to keep the students motivated and having fun.  We will have a water station during the event.  Parents are welcome to come and cheer on their child.  

The schedule is as follows:

4th and 5th 11:00

2nd and 3rd 12:55

Kinder and 1st 2:15

We appreciate your continued support for our PTA.
