Walkathon 2018

This year's Walkathon is set for Friday, Oct. 5. Last year, our premier fall event raised more than $68,000 for the Ridglea Hills Elementary PTA to be able to impact its students. Walkathon is our premier fall event, and we are confident that YOU will want to “Saddle Up” with us once again to support our students. Our goals for this year include…

  • Continue to financially assist in providing state-of-the-art technology relevant for all classrooms and students
  • Continue to financially assist in providing current, relevant and challenging classroom resources for all students
  • Continue to financially assist student academic experiences outside the classroom including field trips, physical fitness and community service opportunities

Thank You PTA!

Both playground shade structures have been completed! THANK YOU for your donations last year to Walkathon, Hot Dog Supper and Auction!

 
Whether you bought a spot at a party, hosted a party, donated items to auction, bought raffle tickets at Hot Dog Supper or made donations to Walkathon, you had a part in bringing the shade to our playgrounds! 
 
Want to help with our next projects? Walkathon is just around the corner on Friday, Oct. 5! Stay tuned for more information coming soon!
