It’s the start of a new school year and we are excited to get up and moving for our annual KBES PTA Fitness Walk. The walk will be held on school grounds at the beginning of the school day on Thursday, September 26. It is a fun way for students to get some exercise all while showing their school spirit wearing their PTA-provided grade level T-shirt. Every year the children, and parents alike, enjoy this event as it is a great opportunity to build the strength of our KBES community.  


The KBES PTA Fitness Walk has always been a traditional fundraiser that has supported invaluable PTA-sanctioned programs such as school assemblies, field trips, and RIF book distributions, Back to School Night, Family Education nights, and Teacher Appreciation - often totaling approximately $9000. 

TWO INCENTIVES: First, for those children who do provide pledges, their name will be entered into a random drawing for a class pizza party sponsored by the PTA. That’s right! One lucky student will be chosen and the whole class will get rewarded. Secondly, the class with the highest percentage of pledge participation will get a day of EXTRA RECESS time.

To ensure everyone has fun, stays safe, and can walk at their own pace, only flat pledges will be accepted (no pledges per lap).  Checks can be made payable to KBES PTA.   Pledge forms and money/checks should be turned in to your teacher the day of the walk.


Donations can very easily also be made online at https://app.99pledges.com/fund/kbespta. There is a link on the KBES PTA website also.  If you choose to donate this way, please record the donation on the collection sheet with “online” designation.


Students are asked to wear their “KBES Pride” t-shirt and sneakers.  There will be a DJ and students will be encouraged to walk at their own pace for 60 minutes.  The walk will be held behind the school starting at 8:45am and parents and siblings are invited to come and cheer on their favorite walker.  The walk will end promptly at 9:45am.


Whether you can pledge $5 or $5000, please know your support makes a difference! Thank you for helping the KBES PTA reach its fundraising goals so we can give our children nothing but the best!
