Successful Walk-A-Thon benefits elementary students

Third grade students Deegan VanHarten and Colren Bailey jump double at the jump rope station.

The Creative Technologies Academy Parent Association held their annual walk-a-thon on October 6. It was a huge success! They raised almost $3,800. This fundraiser was held to benefit the elementary grades to provide field trips and other classroom needs. The walk was held on the school grounds and the classes took turns with their reading buddies participating in the walk-a-thon activities. They all really enjoyed it, and had a lot of fun! The PA did it a little different than in the past years and opted to have activity stations. The students raced on scooters,

swiveled hula hoops, jumped rope, and danced to music. The teachers also enjoyed engaging with their students and watching them enjoy themselves. A huge thank you to our sponsors – Walmart and Meijer for gift cards to buy our snacks and water and Burger King for donating free hamburgers or a free ice cream cone vouchers. Our top class who raised the most money was the 3rd graders who will receive a pizza party and $200 towards books for their classroom. The 5th grade class also earned a pizza party. Thank you to all who helped plan, volunteered on-site and donated to make the walk a huge success!
