A huge THANK YOU to the entire Stevens Creek Community for making our

running laps (over 18,000!!) in the beautiful weather to raise money in support of
the many PTO supported programs! Special thanks to our Walkathon Committee,
who worked tirelessly over the past several months to ensure a smooth walkathon:

Thanks also to the many parent volunteers who gave time from their day to punch lap cards,
serve otter pops, pour water and support our kids as they walked. You are all SUPERSTARS!!!
A final big thank you to our many family & business sponsors and to our wonderful
teachers for their support for this event!!

Time to collect those Walkathon pledges!!!
Our students did a terrific job soliciting pledges and walking laps.
About $40,500 was pledged to support PTO programs, which is below our walkathon goal.
It is critical that we collect the $$ pledged to meet our budget projections!!
All students should have their Walkathon envelopes returned with their laps
recorded and now is the time to go out and collect pledges! Please help your
children collect the pledge money and return the completed pledges to school.
To be eligible to top pledge prizes, pledges must be returned by May 15th.
Thanks for your continued support! If you have any questions,
please contact Yulan Cole (Yulan@yahoo.com).
