The 3rd annual Gardner Pilot Academy Walk-a-thon will take place on Wednesday, April 4, with a rain date of Thursday, April 5. This fun event is both a fundraiser and an opportunity to promote health and wellness in the GPA community.

Students and families are invited to collect pledges to support physical activity programs offered at GPA through Playworks. Pledge forms are available here or from your child’s teacher and the main office at the school. Prizes will be awarded to the class and the individual students who raise the most funds.

Volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks throughout the day.

The walking schedule is as follows:

  • 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.: K1 and K2
  • 10:30 – 11:00 a.m.: Grade 2
  • 11:00 – 11:30 a.m.: Grade 3
  • 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.: Grade 4 and Room 31
