9th Annual Gator Walk - Friday, Oct 21

The Walk-a-Thon is the only student fundraiser for the year.  It is separate from any money given to the PTA.  The proceeds from the walk contribute to the Student Activities Fun, buying equipment for outdoor recess, student clubs, sports & music programs, and field trips.  Our goal is 100% student participation.
Each AB classroom competes to show which has the most school spirit.  Cool prizes, such as the Oculus Quest 2, Apple Air-Pod Pros, JBL Waterproof Bluetooth Speakers, and more, are awarded to the top fundraisers in each grade.  In addition, everyone who participates gets a chance to win various raffle prizes.
