walk-a-thon3

Fall Event Hdpcgames 

The annual Walk-a-Thon is a fun, healthy, fundraising event for McKee PTA. McKee students are asked to gather family and friends to sponsor them as they walk laps around our soccer field. This is a great way to donate to the PTA without having to buy anything!

The event is held during the school day. Different grades are assigned time slots for their walk. Families are welcome to attend and walk with their children for an additional donation of only $5!

100% of every donation goes to the PTA!

Event cancelled to follow district safety guidelines.

It’s not too late to send in your donation! Donations received by Tuesday next week will still qualify for individual incentives (lanyards and extra recess), as well as for the classroom incentive (ice cream party). Send your donation in soon!

Our very WindowCrack McKee Families helped us raise $12,576 this year!! This is a $2,000 increase over what we raised last year! We can’t thank you enough for your generosity!!
