Raising Money to Support Our Students and Teachers


Greetings Westchester Families! 

The Westchester Elementary PTA presents the Move-a-Thon! This fundraiser is a fun way to get your children off their chromebooks and get them moving!

The Move a Thon begins Saturday, October 17 and ends Thursday October 22 but Fundraising begins as soon as you can create your child’s page!

During this time, students use as much free time as possible to move their bodies. We will be tracking movements by the minute. For example, a child could log two minutes of jumping jacks, and five minutes of running. There is plenty of time during virtual learning breaks to get in some activity!

All kinds of activities can be tracked for this fundraiser. Walking, running, skateboarding, jumping rope, family dance party, cartwheels, soccer, badminton, building a fort, gardening, playing hide and seek..they all count! And these are just a sample of what your child could do.

Tracking your child’s activities will be easy. No forms to fill out. Everything will be entered online. Create a fundraising page below. 

Be active with your child and show them how much fun it is. If it is an option, have your child do group activities with siblings or members of their learning pod.
