The Walk-A- Thon, which occurs in October each year, is the school’s major fundraiser and has been a tradition at Tam Valley for many years. In addition to fundraising, this event is a tremendous community-building event. Students have fun walking laps around the school while parents cheer them on, eat great food, dance a bit to our guest DJ, and shop at the Silent Auction.
The funds raised at the Walk-A- Thon are used to fund classroom supplies, computer equipment, assemblies, our library and garden aides, and much more. All funds are managed by the PTA and provide an invaluable supplement to district funds for student projects and facilities upkeep.
A large number of parent volunteers are needed to make this event a success, and each year parents “step up to plate” to show their support for Tam Valley School.
