Walking Club Volunteers

Whittier School PTA is looking for volunteers for Walking Club during recess on Wednesdays during Walking Club season. Encourage your student to participate, then tell him or her you’ll be there cheering! If you have little ones at home during the day, we’re happy to help match you with another parent in the same boat who can exchange babysitting duties and alternate weeks.

How Walking Club Works

Walking Club is all about encouraging students to get moving, active, and burning off that extra energy!

  • Volunteers arrive at 11:30, sign in at the front office, and pick up a Walking Club volunteer/guest sticker to wear. Grade assignments, door location, and “Cat Cash” to distribute to walkers are given out in the front hallway.
  • Grades 4, 5, and 6 walk first from 11:40-12:00.
  • Grades K, 1, 2, and 3 walk from 12:00 – 12:20.
  • Participating students receive one Cat Cash dollar for every lap. (Mr. Belonio created our cool “Cat Cash” for 2013-2014; previously-issued Walking Club dollars still can be used at the Walking Club store.)
  • The Walking Club store is open during the fourth and eighth weeks of Walking Club each fall and spring (students can walk and earn Cat Cash the same day). Walkers spend the Cash they’ve earned on fun trinkets (bracelets, erasers, bouncy balls, go-gos, etc).

The budget is minimal, so Walking Store items are “priced” accordingly to ensure we don’t run out of prizes. If you have appropriate new or like-new items (we all love ‘em, but no Happy Meal toys, please) you’d like to donate to the cause, let Walking Club chair Debbi Andrews know. Larger items are appreciated, too!

Please contact Michelle Rafacz, mdemumbrum@yahoo.com or Pam McGinn, pjmcg207@gmail.com with questions. See you around the school—literally!
