Walkathon: 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Spring ArtsFest: 9:00 a.m. – Noon
Urban Montessori Charter School
UMCS families may choose to schedule the day to include attending students' performances, supporting the walkers, viewing artwork, and enjoying a picnic lunch and treats from the bake sale.
The UMCS Walkathon is a fundraising event for our school. Students and families that want to participate gather pledges before May 6. On the day of the Walkathon, participants register and walk laps around a course on and around the school grounds. There will also be other activities that enable kids to earn laps and have fun!
This event is an inclusive, fun, festival-like gathering that promotes exercise and brings in financial support for the school.
Families are encouraged to walk with the kids or hang out and socialize while the students walk, but student participation is key. Younger siblings (ages 3-5) can participate as Junior Walkers.
Participants may walk as much as they wish at a pace that is comfortable for them, while also being encouraged to set a goal.
Anyone can pledge to support the student walking — extended family, friends and neighbors -—whomever the student feels comfortable asking.
