We are in the last stretch before the Walk A Thon event in the week of May 3. The kids have done a great job fundraising for far! Remember to hand in your envelopes to your teacher this week, with your division number and shirt size for your prizes. Go Macaulay!
The WAT is Macaulay’s biggest fundraising event of the year and a critical part of the Parent Advisory Committee’s financial planning. This is a great event that promotes both school and community spirit!
Funds raised support many PAC-funded activities at the school. These activities include Art, Science and Drama workshops, field trips, PAC family events, and classroom allowances for teachers to purchase supplies for their classrooms. Kids can earn great prizes too! Be sure to return your pledge sheets and envelops to the school by Friday April 30th.

It’s Walk & Wheel to School Week! Be sure to ride your bike, scooter, rollerblades, skateboard or simply walk to school all this week. If you don’t live within walking or wheeling distance from the school, we encourage you to park a few blocks from the school and walk or wheel from there. Unfortunately, this year we won’t have celebration stations or sticker boards but we can all still do our part to help support climate action and stay healthy by walking and wheeling.
