Win An Apple iPod Touch!

To inspire Fairmont students to walk to school and participate in the lunchtime Walking/Jogging Club, we are offering a Grand Prize of an Apple iPod Touch. This program is funded by a special grant from the American Heart Association and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, and supported by the Fairmont PTA.

A raffle will be held for the Grand Prize in June.

Students can earn one raffle ticket each time they walk to school on the designated Walk to School day. Walk to School days are on the 1st Wednesday of each month, except for April when it is the 2nd Wednesday of the month.

(There are eight Walk to School Days, on Nov. 4, Dec. 2, Jan. 6, Feb. 3, March 3, April 14, May 5, and June 2).

Students must check in with PTA volunteers on Walk to School Days to be eligible for the raffle ticket. If you must drive your student to school, please park a few blocks away and walk from there.

The Walking/Jogging Club will take place every Wednesday at lunch recess and will be facilitated by Coach Lisa. Students can earn one raffle ticket for each mile that they walk or jog and a special `toe token' keychain for each mile. (Kindergarten students can walk or jog during PlayWorks class play time.) The Walking/Jogging Club will start on Wednesday, Oct. 28.

There will also be opportunities to earn raffle tickets during the Walkathon in March and the Fairmont Olympics in May.
