walkathon-1Every other year we hold a school-wide walkathon to raise money for organizations working for a healthier, cleaner environment.

Past year’s walkathons have been a huge success. Our students felt proud and hopeful about their contribution to the larger society and their ability to help make the world a better place. The entire school walks up 3rd Street to Prospect Park, and then walks the 2-mile inner loop in Prospect Park.  Many families join us for this event.  It is an incredibly moving sight to see  1600 people  all walking around the park to raise money to help make our environment healthier!

Each year, the SLT and students participate in deciding which of the many worthy environmental organizations that are doing important work that is understandable to our students.  The chosen organizations are announced prior to the event each year.
