MSA Walks because MSA Rocks!

MSA Walks because MSA Rocks!

Friday November 21st


Magnolia’s Walkathon is the PTO's annual fundraiser usually held in the afternoon of a Fall Friday. It is a big community event where we build and celebrate our community, have fun, and raise money for Magnolia.

Kids support their school by asking family, friends, and neighbors to sponsor them for the number of laps they walk at the Walkathon and then use their energy to walk as many laps as they can. Parents and family sponsor their child (and sometimes their child’s friends), and volunteer before, during and after to put on the event. Teachers, the principal and staff encourage everyone to do their best.

In the morning of the Walkathon, many volunteers are setting up the course, preparing food & drinks, organizing volunteers, and running last minute errands.

Parents and community mingle, eat, relax in the shade, encourage their children, volunteer at one of the stations, and catch up with friends.

At the end we announce student laps and winners. Lots of volunteers make light work of packing up the course, folding up the tents and tables, picking up litter, disposing of trash, and making Magnolia cleaner than we found it.

Finally after the Walk there is money to turn in and count, thank yous to write, and kids to congratulate with gifts and parties for the top lap walkers.

The money raised by the PTO from this event goes back to the kids at Magnolia to pay for:

School Technology

Teacher Classroom Material Grants

Field Trips

Various events: 8th Grade Promotion, Science Fair, Math Night, Science Expo, etc.

Afterschool enrichment

Student recognition breakfasts

Playground balls
