Make Your Donations For SMOS Walk-A-Thon
That’s another SMOS Walk-A-Thon in the books. Thank you to the families who attended the event! It was an absolutely perfect Fall day to gather together and visit with friends and classmates, walking laps around Tower Grove Park. Thank you especially to Christine Stephens, Megan Biegacki, and the many other volunteers who helped make Walk-a-thon a successful event.
Walk-A-Thon Donations are due by November 15th. You can submit total amounts via WeShare or bring a check or cash to the School office. Please make sure to put the check in an envelope and note the student’s name and that it’s for ‘Walkathon’.
It is important that whether your family participated in the walk or not, that EACH FAMILY contribute to the Walk-A-Thon either by donating directly, or by still collecting pledges. Remember – to make our goal of $20,000 (all of which goes towards operating expenses at the school), we need to collect at least $50/student. So, please make your donations today to provide these much needed funds for our School.
If you have further questions, please reach out to Chris Stephens.
