Walking School Bus & Bike Train – Oct. 23

Why Walk or Bike?

Safer Streets – Communities with higher rates of walking and bicycling tend to have lower crash rates for all travel modes. One reason my be that motorists drive more cautiously when they expect to encounter walkers and bicyclists. More walkers and bicyclists can also improve personal security by providing more “eyes on the street.”  Click here to visit the Walk & Bike to School website.

Parents and Families—

The West PTO fundraiser will be starting soon – New for West Elementary this year – A Fun Run through Boosterthon! This is a two-week program that kicks off with a student Pep Rally on November 4th. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps) at the fun run, which will happen on November 13th. This year our West PTO goal is to raise $10,000 for supplies and programming for our students, and we need your help! We’ve asked the experts at Booster to power our fundraiser to make it easier, more profitable, and more fun. 


Students will also experience an amazing character theme, MINDSPARK: WILD WEST! Booster’s most exciting theme yet combines S.T.E.A.M. skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building. While they’re teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to save Dr. Shock, our students will learn five character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.


You can help our school by getting pledges from family and friends and entering them on FUNRUN.COM starting October 28th. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on our students at the Hutchinson Fun Run – Watch for more details in the weeks to come. Thanks so much for your support!
