Wallingford school walkathon seeks sponsors

October 20th, 2010 · No Comments

Did you know there’s a new elementary school in Wallingford? In September, McDonald Elementary School opened with just 60 students in the Lincoln High School building (4400 Interlake Ave. N.), where it will be housed for two years while the permanent building at N. 54th and Latona is renovated.

The school is holding its first and most important fundraiser this Friday, Oct. 22 — a walkathon to raise money to hire teachers assistants.

McDonald parent Jen Longtin told us that they’re particularly interested in attracting sponsorship from local businesses. Some of the benefits are listed on the McDonald PTA website. All contributions are tax deductible.

In addition to parents and teachers, Katie Follett and other members of the UW track team will cheer on students at the event. Follett held the world record for the 1500 M while at the UW, and is now training for the Olympics.

You can find much more information about the walkathon and McDonald School on the PTA website.
