Weekly Update

Walkathon 2019

We are less than two weeks away from our 2019 St. Augustine School Walkathon (Friday, October 11). Some important points to note:

  • We will be starting our walk AT SCHOOL and finishing at school again this year, NOT at the beach. Drop off will be as per usual with 8:30 bell. 

  • Students need to dress for the weather, as we walk RAIN or SHINE.

  • Please, send a pocket snack (fruit or other nutritious food) and a water bottle (pre-filled before arriving at school).

  • Everyone will be placed into supervised walking groups. Students must never walk alone.

  • Once the group has completed the walk, parent walkers will hand off their group to their teacher in class back at school from where they will be dismissed.

  • Once completed, students MUST sign out with their own teacher before leaving for the day.

  • Parents are asked to collect their child(ren) at their classroom.

  • Approximate end times:

    • Kindergarten and Grade 1 (10:45am)

    • Grades 2-7 (11:00am)

  • N.B. There is NO After School Club Oct. 11.
     

PLEDGES & DONATIONS: Remember that you do not have to bring in your collected pledges prior to the Walkathon. Pledges are not due until October 21. This allows SAS families to see other friends and family during the Thanksgiving long weekend who might be interested in supporting our school fundraising endeavour. Our online total shows we have raised almost $9000 of our $45K school goal. Let’s keep those pledges coming! Click here for our online campaign.
