St. Andrew students, faculty, staff, parents, alumni, and parishioners. Are you ready for this challenge? Will You Be Able to Make Mr. Chovanec BE a Spartan?
This year we are replacing our annual fall Walk-a-Thon with “Soles for Catholic Education“, an Archdiocese-wide walk where we will participate with other schools. All of the money we raise for St. Andrew Parish School remains with our school. There are some important dates to remember for this coming up quick.
September 30 – Last Day to Register for Walk (WITHOUT having to pay $10 registration fee)
November 2 – Day of Walk – 10:00AM
Here Are Your Challenges:
1. We have a school goal of $6,000. If we reach this goal before November 2, Mr. Chovanec will dress in ↑THIS SPARTAN OUTFIT↑ and walk the 2 miles.
2. The grade with the highest amount of pledges will get a pizza party from Mr. Chovanec.
3. The student with the highest amount of pledges will get lunch at Culver’s from Mr. Chovanec.
Sign up today at www.catholicschoolswalk.org. Choose to register to walk with a school team. Pick St. Andrew Parish School.
Make a team with your friends or family or join the general St. Andrew Parish School team and set a personal goal. There is a thermometer to keep track of how close you are!
Share your pledge page with friends, neighbors, and family to help you meet your personal goal via e-mail, Facebook, and/or with your Soles for Education brochure.
This event will be a wonderful way for us to mingle with other schools within our area and show our support for Catholic Education. Archbishop Listecki will open at 9:45 with a prayer and Gene Mueller, 620 WMTJ will emcee the event.
From 10:00AM-Noon, everyone will participate in the 2 mile walk and there will be music, refreshments, and children’s activities.
Everyone who walks receives a t-shirt. If you are unable to join us in the walk, please consider making a pledge to support St. Andrew Parish School.
Day: Saturday, November 2, 2013 – All Soul’s Day!
Remember, this activity REPLACES the usual fall Walk-a-Thon so your participation is needed!
