WonderWalk: Walking Together for Stronger, Healthier Babies

Fall 2017 WonderWalk Campaign

WonderWalk provides elementary school students the chance to help the March of Dimes give all babies a healthy start. A mini-walk on school grounds, WonderWalk is a fun, safe, educational and rewarding way for students to have a first time experience making a difference in their community.

Students are encouraged to pick someone special to walk for such as a baby brother or sister or someone who is expecting a baby. They raise money by asking friends and family to make donations in order to help them reach their goals. AmPark’s fundraising goal this year is $1,000 – the student which raises the most will have lunch with the administration! You should have all received the sponsor envelopes yesterday so your children can begin making a difference for this important cause. Encourage your children to make signs to carry with them during the walk – especially if they were premature themselves! Continue reading WonderWalk: Walking Together for Stronger, Healthier Babies

Father Power! Dads Take Your Child to School Day

This event promotes father involvement by encouraging fathers and significant male caregivers of all kinds to take their children to school. Actively involved fathers are a positive force in the lives of their children and their community. When fathers are involved in the lives of their children, especially their education, their children learn more, perform better in school, and exhibit healthier behavior.

Check out Kelly and Angie welcoming our dads this morning and showing their appreciation!
