SES Run/Walk/Move event! Friday, October 25!

We are excited to announce the annual SES Run Walk Move event on Friday, October 25, 2019. This school-wide fundraising event is organized by the SES PTSA and family volunteers with collaboration and support from school staff. SES Run Walk Move is similar to a traditional jog-a-thon where participants gather pledges from sponsors and run or walk laps around the school. At SES, our participants can also earn “laps” by dancing with a NW Dance Project instructor. Pledges may be made as lump sums or per lap. The idea is for families and others to support the students in any way they can, be it in dimes, dollars, running along side your student, or cheering. The money raised from this event goes towards funding the SES place-based-learning curriculum and events. Last year this fun-filled event raised over $12,000 for our school!

We invite you to join us in supporting SES Run Walk Move and all of our students by following these steps:

  1. Help your student(s) gather pledges through the traditional paper forms [download your paper form here]. You also have the option to also ask friends and family to donate online by setting up a Walkstarter webpage. With a parent or another adult, students can visit sunnyside.walkstarter.org and set up a page in minutes. Each participant can visit sunnyside.walkstarter.org and create a webpage, setting lap and fundraising goals with a custom avatar to share with potential donors via email or social media. Donors simply click the link and make a pledge in a few easy steps. Parents and kids can monitor progress toward their fundraising goals and easily send thank-you emails from the site. Walkstarter is private and secure, so no one can get to your child’s page unless they have your unique URL. Note: You can get donations on the paper form or through Walkstarter or a combination! Whatever works best for you, your family and your sponsors.
  2. Help your student remember to bring a water bottle and wear weather and activity appropriate clothing and shoes for the event day on Friday, October 25.
  3. Join us on the day of the event to cheer our students, run or dance along with them, and/or help tally laps. We plan to have supporters stationed around the school to help cheer and monitor students.
  4. Turn in your students’ pledge forms and collected pledges to the SES office or by online payments by Thursday, November 7.

Garden Day is Sunday October 6

Sunday October 6: Garden Day

For a few hours each Fall and Spring, Sunnyside families come together to take care of the school grounds on what we call “GARDEN DAY.” The productivity we can accomplish during this short amount of time is incredible if people show up! Drop by and work for however long you can between 9:00am-1:00pm. Projects that require adult-sized bodies, brains, and tools will be the priority. This is a family event- please do not drop off your student, there will not be supervision. Each group of up to 5 middle school students should have an adult chaperone. There will be small tools and smaller jobs for young people. We’ll use SES garden tools, but if you have your own gloves, shovel, or wheelbarrow close by, that would come in handy.

Activities include: improving garden beds, making new beds, spreading compost, improving trails, planting, chicken coop care, weeding, and more! 

Volunteer roles we need: procurer of snacks, bringer of coffee, head of irrigation pick-up, getting more people to join us, just being here and digging it! and we could make great use of a tool box with drill, driver and saw.

 ** If you’d like to contribute supplies, we need: shade-loving native plants, potting soil, planting compost, bone meal, seeds of all sorts, new kid gloves, and a (mini) green house!

The school building will be closed during Garden Day. For more information, contact SES Garden Coordinator, Steph at sunnysidesustainability@gmail.com
