Hello FPPK parents,

It’s time to prepare for our 8th annual Walkathon and Family Picnic  on Saturday, May 6th – our biggest fundraising event of the year and LOTS OF FUN!!

Our goal is 100% participation from all families.  What does this mean?

First, we want you to attend!  The annual Walkathon & potluck Family Picnic is a rain-or-shine event where FPPK families walk, eat and celebrate the school community and the sponsors that help make it a wonderful, learning experience.

Second, we ask that every family help sponsor.  There are various levels of donations:

1. T-Shirt sponsors – the name of any business or family that donates $100 or more is printed on our Walkathon t-shirt, given out to all FPPK children & worn at the event.

2. Corporate sponsors who donate $500 or more –  the company logo is printed on the t-shirt and promotional items are included in a marketing packet sent out to all families.

3. Pledges – any donation under $100.  Perfect for grandparents, co-workers, friends & neighbors. No amount is too small!  Pledges accepted anytime.

All the best and, as always, thank you for helping make FPPK such a wonderful place!

Sofia & Ann,

School Board Co-Chairs
