On Thursday, May 11, the Wealthy Elementary School PTO will again hold its one and only fundraiser for 2016/2017— The Wizard Walk. That afternoon at 1:30 pm, students in all grades will come together to walk over a mile through Gaslight Village to raise funds for the Wealthy School PTO and its programs for next year.
The incredible success of last year’s event (over $38,000!) enabled the PTO to sponsor many programs, in whole or in part, including new classroom instructional rugs, cultural arts programs, eco-columns, Field Day, the fourth grade Mackinac Island history trip, Beauty and the Beast Jr. musical, Odyssey of the Mind, planners for grades 3-5, fifth grade Science Camp at Mystic Lake, swimming for grades 1-5, and TEAM celebrations. Without the generous support of our parents and corporate sponsors, we simply would not have been able to offer these programs to our children.
The PTO recognizes that parents prefer fewer fundraisers, and true to our word, this has been, and will be, our only major fundraiser for the 2016/2017 school year. All proceeds will go to Wealthy Elementary School and 100% of donations are tax deductible.
To meet our goal of $40,000, each student is encouraged to sign up sponsorships from parents, relatives, and friends totaling at least $50. We realize that some will raise less and some will raise more, but we ask you to sponsor what you can. Every child, regardless of amount raised, will participate in the walk! We encourage you to come out at 1:30 on May 11th to line the streets and cheer on the children. Thank you for your continued support!
