Walk-A-Jog 10/23/2016


Important Final Details

Walk-A-Jog is less than a week away — this Sunday, October 23rd.  It’s not too late to register – sign up on event day at the registration desk. We continue to accept pledges, both online and by check. Every dollar counts toward our fundraising goal of $45,000. These dollars help support popular PTA-funded programs such as Art in Action ($5,000), Artist in Residence, academic assemblies and more.   Your WAJ dollars also fund special projects — like creating our gorgeous Native California Garden where your children enjoy BUGS lessons!


Collect Pledges

Every family is encouraged to raise $250, but all donations are welcome and appreciated.  Pledges are due November 10th. Share your child’s personal pledge page (created when you registered online) with your friends and family. Consider a $250 Family Sponsorship, or turn in checks made out to Brittan Acres PTA to your child’s teacher, the front office, or the registration desk on event day.


Sign Up for a Carnival Booth Shift

Each classroom hosts a carnival booth. Help our kids have fun and volunteer for your classroom’s booth. Visit your classroom Shutterfly site to sign up for a volunteer time slot. Please note: Booths not staffed by classroom volunteers will be closed until a volunteer arrives.


WAJ Bags

This Thursday, October  20th, your child will bring home his/her Walk-A-Jog bag.  The bag will include any items you ordered during registration (meal tickets, carnival wristbands, a t-shirt and water bottle).  


Wear Your T-Shirt To School on Friday!

Please have your child show their school spirit and wear their WAJ t-shirt to school on Friday, October 21st.

Carnival Shadow Open Position

The WAJ Committee is still in need of a person to shadow this year’s Carnival Lead and take over the role next year.  This job is fun and easy!  Coordinate carnival game rentals, assign booths to classrooms, answer parent questions about carnival booths, and ensure booths are fully staffed for the day of WAJ.  Time commitment is 1-2 hours a week for 3 to 4 weeks prior to WAJ.  

For FAMILIES IN NEED, funds are available for your child / children to go to WAJ. Please contact Mr. Triska ( Questions? Email
