Countdown to Walkathon, Day 3 - Self-Awareness
Wed, Nov 1 5:47pm
John Gomes Elementary

Dear Gomes Parents,

Today your students learned about the second character trait to becoming a hero: self-awareness. When you are self-aware, you can understand more about yourself and how your actions affect other people. 

Register Your Students on!
By registering your students, you can collect pledges so they can help earn Gomes school money for every lap they run in the Walkathon on November 9th! It's easy, just go to and enter your information. If you're not comfortable putting your birth date, you can put 1/1/1970 (the epoch, for all you computer geniuses out there!). Once you are registered, you can start collecting pledges and check out the character videos and find out what your students have been learning about.

Tonight's Challenge
Our Boosterthon friends posed a challenge for all classes during the team huddle today, to see which class will receive the most pledges by tomorrow morning. The winning class will get their very own Boosterthon mini drone (see photo below)!

If you have any questions or concerns, just reply to this email and PTA members will get back to you.
