Hillcrest Walkathon 2021


Today is the last day of the Walkathon! Hillcrest kids have gone above and beyond meeting this challenge and working to achieve their movement goals over the past two weeks. With participation across all grade levels, we could not be prouder of them - way to show up, Hillcrest!


Tomorrow, I will send out a Google form for families to submit that will allow me to track participation. All participants who submit the form will receive a prize and we will hold a raffle to award a special prize to one participant from each grade level. Please stay tuned to Konstella for details and future information!


For those who have chosen to fundraise - thank you! The last day donations can be made over Walkstarter will be May 14th. Be sure to send a thank you to the friends, family members, and neighbors who have supported your efforts and our school. :) These funds are vital to the staff positions, programs, and curriculum that directly benefit our students and we are incredibly grateful for the contributions.


A sincere thank you to Neda Burapavong, Sarah Schere, Jessica Brasch, Coach Payumo, Mr. Pabst, Karen O'Connell, Dave Carney, Matt Gousman, Erika Feller, Maria McCormick, Wayne Berreman, Migi Lee, Liz DeLuca, and the Hillcrest News team for all of your support and contributions to this event. Thank you also to those who reached out to share positive feedback about how their student was engaging with the challenge... it was my hope that we could create a fun, accessible, reimagined Walkathon that was centered around the kids and celebrated their grit and resiliency. Thank you to the community for your flexibility and patience as we navigated a new platform and event design... I hope the past two weeks have provided an opportunity for your family to try something new together.


With Gratitude,
