The Riverdale Heights PTA is excited to announce the return of the Walk-a-Thon as PTA's main fundraiser for 2017-18 school year.

Walk-a-Thon's FAQ's!
  • What is the Walk-A-Thon?
This is our ONLY FUNDRAISER of the year for our PTA. 100% of the money raised goes right back to our school to fund things like: library books, after school clubs, fun family activities, classroom and teacher supplies, author and artist visits, and much more!
  • Where does the money go?
Donations fund all the PTA sponsored events and services. Additional money raised will go towards granting wishes for teachers in all grade levels. There are so many ways the school benefits from your generosity.
  • What time will my student walk?

 Grades Line Up Time Start Finish
 1st and 2nd 8:55am 9:00am 9:20am
 5th and 6th 9:25am 9:30am 9:50am
 Kindergarten 9:55am 10:00am 10:20am
 3rd and 4th 10:25am 10:30am 10:50am

  • Can I come?
Absolutely! You are welcome to come watch or walk/run with the students.

  • What should my student wear?
Students should wear comfortable gym shoes and are encouraged to wear PV colors (navy blue and gray) to get in the spirit!

  • Do you keep track of the laps?
Thanks to our friends at The End Result/GetMeRegistered.com, we are once again using chips on the kid’s shoes to count their laps.  Results will be given to your child’s teacher. 

  • Why do I have to sign the donation envelope?
Sometimes kids forget to bring it home and we just want to be sure that you have seen all of this important information.

  • Why should I support the Walk-A-Thon?
There are many schools that ask the students to go door to door selling products and have multiple fundraisers. We don’t want to do that! We want to keep our fundraising simple and healthy. The kids LOVE participating in Walk-A-Thon and it’s easy for our parents. We can only do it this way if we have your support!

  • How can I make a donation?
Submit cash or checks in the envelope that was sent home. Checks should be made out to the Riverdale Heights PTA. Another great option is to donate online (thank you Get Me Registered!) by clicking here!.  Ask family and friends (near and far) to help support our school!

  • How can I volunteer or if I have more questions?
We love volunteers and need a lot of them to make this event successful. Please contact any PTA President Kelli Hehkle (kelli.hehlke@gmail.com) or any PTA Board Member if you are available to help on Walk-A-Thon day.
