The Fate of Mr. Smith - Vote Now

Exciting Walk-a-Thon Update!

The PTA's number one fundraiser is the Walk-A-Thon and it is about three weeks away.  As of this week, $7,941.00 has been raised for the Walk-a-Thon but we have a long way to go if we want to reach our goals. 

Last year when we reached our goal, Mr. Smith endured having a cooler of sports drink dumped on his head.  This year, we decided to let the students, teachers and families decide his fate.  Over the past week, students and teachers came up with ideas if we reach our stretch Walk-a-Thon goal of $27,500.  Those ideas have been narrowed down to the top three ideas and now YOU get the chance to select the winner.  

Visit our "Fate of Mr. Smith" survey at to cast your vote for what will happen to Mr. Smith if we reach our goal. The voting will end on Monday, October 1st at 12:00 p.m.  Additionally, here is a link to a short video pertaining to Walk-A-Thon:

Remember, if we don't reach our goal, none of this will happen - so send those postcards and make your donations at  The money raised will support the many PTA programs students and their families enjoy throughout the school year like assemblies, family fun nights, talent show, family directory, yearbook, after-school programs, author visits, all pro dads breakfasts and so much more!

2018 Wildcat Walk-a-Thon

-- Scroll down for donation form --

The West Vincent Elementary PTA will host the 2nd Wildcat Walk-a-Thon on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 (rain date is October 19th).  This event combines fitness, fun and fundraising to encourage kids to help raise money to support the many PTA programs they and their families enjoy throughout the school year.

On the day of the event, all West Vincent students and staff will walk outside for 30 minutes.  They will be pumped up by music from a DJ, inspired to keep moving by motivational signs and treated to some fun surprises.  The student from each grade who has raised the most money by the day of the event, will be invited to lead the walk and hold the official Wildcat Walk-a-Thon banner with our mascot, Willie the Wildcat.   All walk participants will be eligible to win prizes.  A week after the walk, various raffle prizes will be awarded, and the top overall fundraiser and top fundraising class, will be awarded special prizes.  

If we reach our $20,000 goal, there will be a special surprise for ALL students. If we reach $27,500, we will get an even more amazing surprise. Last year our Principal, Mr. Smith, had a cooler of sports drink dumped on his head! And, of course, all students win because the money makes more programming possible!
