Event & Other Fundraisers
Each year the WSA organizes a number of fun events that help raise money for the school. These include the Whitehills 5K, two Book Fairs, the PawPalooza Dance & Silent Auction, and the Carnival. Families can participate in any of these fundraisers at any level of financial commitment that is comfortable - from buying one book at the Book Fair to donating an item for the silent auction to pledging a sponsorship for the 5K.
The Whitehills 5K includes a free half mile Kids Fun Run and a chip-timed 5K street run/walk. Sponsorships from local businesses and other community partners help bring more proceeds back to the the school. Registration fees are kept low to encourage participation by as many students and families as possible. The race is open to the public as well, so spread the word!
The popular Carnival is held in the spring. Classrooms turn into game rooms with classics like the Cake Walk and Duck Pond. Concessions are sold outside and in the cafeteria, and a raffle gives attendees a chance to win some great prizes. Face painting, a bounce house and more add to the fun.
