Whitesville Way ColorBlast Walkathon Happens Friday!
A perfect way for the Whitesville Elementary Family to come together for a day of fun and fellowship! Proceeds will help fund a new computer lab for the school.
Whitesville Elementary School will once again host its Whitesville Way ColorBlast Walkathon, from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, April 26th, 2019.
WES principal Tricia Murphy said, “Our goal is to create a community event where everyone pulls together for a common goal of improving the educational experience of Whitesville kids! Our students and staff have brainstormed our greatest needs as a school, and the committee decided that proceeds from this year’s event will be used towards the purchase of a new and improved computer lab!”
WES introduced the ColorBlast as a new idea last year. “It turned out to be a huge hit and one of the greatest memories of the year for our entire school community,” Murphy said. “With the support of our families, staff and so many generous businesses, we are able to ensure that every single child joins in the fun! Overall, this day is full of family and so much Whitesville pride!”
The schedule of activities for Friday are:
10 a.m. – Mission March – The entire school will be “walkin’ with a mission” together around the track. While they participate in the traditional walkathon activity, students will wave flags proudly displaying their personal mission statements that they have created.
11 a.m. – Tailgate Party on the Track – The tailgate party is a school-wide luncheon, complete with picnic blankets, our very own DJ Stone (WES music teacher Jeremy Stone), and a delicious lunch! Michael “Doodle” Morris (parent of two WES students) will take his giant smoker to the school and will team up with the Whitesville cafeteria staff to prepare hamburgers and hot dogs for the entire WES family – the best lunch in town!
Noon – Whitesville Way ColorBlast – Confetti will fill the air as each grade level kicks off a special ColorBlast Trail around the school grounds. There will be four color stations around the trail to blast our students with tons of fun! Students will finish at the school-wide DJ Dance Party Finish Line in the middle of the track!
