WHAT IS MOVE-A-THON? Move-A-Thon is our (typically) annual celebration of movement and our school. The Move-A-Thon fundraiser gives students the opportunity to have fun moving, walking, running, dancing, and playing for Peirce! Weather permitting, all students will have some fun with activities and a celebratory walk with their classmates to the lakefront. It is a great time and we need lots of parent volunteers. It is a good time to get involved. Funds raised will support arts partnerships for every grade level.
Beginning at 8:30 a.m., K - 8th grade students will walk to the lakefront and back. Pre-K students will walk to a nearby playground and back. This year, our goal is to raise $30,000 and encourage each student to participate in both the walk and raising funds to the best of their ability!
