FAQ: March for Peace and Fun Run

When and Where will the March begin?  On Friday, March 3rd, at 8 AM, we’ll begin the March for Peace starting at the front of the school. Parents are encouraged to attend the march to cheer students on.

When and Where will the Fun Run begin?  The run will take place during each class’ WOW time.  For safety reasons, each class will have their own special time to run.  It will also take place at school, during school hours.  We will be making this time especially fun with a finish line and peace-filled goodie bags.

Must I fundraise for my child to participate?  No, you don’t have to fundraise.  Your child will be a part of the march and run whether or not you decide to show support with a Get Movin’ Crew page.

What am I raising money for?  We are asking for support not only of our efforts to incorporate the “No Place for Hate” Curriculum and show what a great school we have, but also to ensure that we continue to provide support for our teachers and students.  Where AISD can’t provide the funds to offer diverse programs and enrichment, we fill in the gaps.  We raise money to help our school do even more for our kids and teachers. Last year, PTA was able to raise money for a new Gardening Lead Instructor, a Maker Space for the library, the new climbing wall in the gym, and much more.

How do I sign up?  Go to www.thegetmovincrew.com and sign up your child today. Once your child has an encrypted fundraising page, it is easy to share on Facebook so that friends and family can donate. However, it is okay if you are not on social media!  You can still create a page and email/ask friends and family to support your child as they March for Peace and Run to enhance the projects at our school.  You also have the option to donate through the Zilker website payment page:  http://zilkerelem.org/product/peace-and-fun-run-donation/
