What is Wizard Walk?

Wizard Walk - October 12th

8:30am to 11:15am @ Westchase Recreation Center Field

On Friday, September 29th, your Westchase Elementary PTA kicked off Wizard Walk with an exciting student pep rally and we hope this year’s walk is even more fun than last year! The money raised will support these school improvements requested by our staff – replace current technology needs, replace the PE water fountains, upgrade the school water fountains, add a new shade cover to the other PE court and add new technology to our classrooms. Because Wizard Walk is fully-managed by PTA volunteers and school staff, more of the funds raised will directly benefit our school. The focus is less on toys and prizes and more on schoolwide and classroom incentives. So, get excited, get involved and reach out to friends and family to support you and your school! If every Wizard can raise just $55, we will be able to meet this goal.

How you can help:

  1. Ask family, friends or co-workers near and far for a flat donation. Be sure to let your sponsors know how their donations will be used at Westchase Elementary. Every dollar counts and no donation is too small! PLEASE DO NOT APPROACH STRANGERS. YOUR SAFETY IS OUR FIRST PRIORITY.
  2. Go to www.westchastpta.org/wizardwalk, and create an on-line donation account. Then, share your link with friends and family via email or social media. Each child who registers for the event online will be entered in a daily drawing. (Note: Cash or check donations allow us to avoid processing fees and are greatly appreciated when possible.)
  3. To turn in your donations, place all donations in the attached Wizard Walk envelope. Fill it out completely with your name, your teacher’s name and grade clearly marked. All monies must be turned in Thursday, October 12.
  4. Thank your sponsors by sending them a note after the event to let them know how much money was raised and how much fun you had! They will appreciate your thoughtfulness.
