Wizard Walk is HERE!
What is Wizard Walk?
Wizard Walk - September 28th
8:00am to Noon @ Westchase Recreation Center Field
Wizard Walk is a fun, healthy fundraiser, sponsored by Durrett Orthodontics and Miner Corporation, that will raise much-needed funds to support ALL PTA programs and events. Remaining proceeds will be applied to an ongoing capital campaign to build a new playground near the covered picnic tables. The 2015-16 PTA Executive Board earmarked $25,000 for this project. An additional $35,000 is needed to break ground.
Your Westchase Elementary PTA hopes to make this year’s Wizard Walk an EVEN BIGGER fundraising event than last year! Our goals are to have 100% participation from our students and to raise $60,000, and we need your help to achieve it! So, get excited, get involved, and reach out to friends and family to support your child and your school!
ALL DONATIONS MUST BE RECEIVED BY SEPT 28th.
Wizard Walk is fully-managed by PTA volunteers and school staff members. This means that more of the funds raised will directly benefit our school. The fundraiser was carefully constructed to include numerous schoolwide and classroom incentives with less emphasis on toys and prizes. Character lessons on kindness and teamwork have also been integrated.
We have replaced the traditional pledge-per-lap format in favor of flat donations. Please share the information (via the link below or donation form) with your friends, family, and co-workers, but please DO NOT solicit donations by door-knocking. Student safety is our first priority.
What to Expect on Event Day
Your Westchase Elementary PTA will kick off Wizard Walk with an exciting student pep rally. Wizard Walk will be held on Wednesday, September 28 from 8am to Noon at the Westchase Recreation Center Field.
Wizard Walk is a walk, not a run, and everyone is invited to participate! Parents, grandparents, and siblings may all walk with the students in a relaxed, fun environment. There will be music, themed laps, and plenty of water to keep everyone cool. Guests must check in at the front office or by the picnic tables near the teachers' parking lot before proceeding to the Recreation Center Field.

Please Register Your Child
Each child will have his or her own, secure webpage to track their progress as well as their class & school. They can also send out a donation request through email and Facebook to family and friends. The online registration and pledging is supported by the “Get Movin' Crew”.
Each class has a classroom goal (K – 3 = $1,100 and 4 – 5 = $1,200). Each class that reaches its goal receives an Ice Pop Party and is entered into a drawing for a Big Bucket of school supplies and PE Toys.
