The Otter Walk, MES Walk-a-Thon Oct. 22, 2016
Mark your calendar! Our annual Walk-a-Thon is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Prior to the big day, the kids gather sponsors . . . then at the event, they walk, and walk, and walk . . . all the way having fun with their friends and gathering prizes, while everyone else cheers them on. Parents and friends enjoy hanging out and meeting other families, eating great food, and vying for a spot at many of our popular ‘Pay to Play’ events and parties. This is one day at school your child—and you—won’t want to miss! Visit our Otter Walk page for details.
