Whale Walk

Giving Today Can Make a World of Difference Tomorrow

Cedar Wood PTA is an independent non-profit organization with the mission to enhance and support the school experience for our students, teachers, staff members and families. The Whale Walk is our main fundraising event that allows our school community to participate in raising money to support enriching educational experiences at Cedar Wood.

What is the whale walk?

The Whale Walk is our PTA’s ONE & ONLY all school fun-run/fundraiser. NO product sales & NO lap counting. Just collect donations and earn great prizes! All students participate in the Whale Walk during lunch recess on Friday, October 7, 2022.

Thank you Madeleine P. (5th grade) for the 2022-23 Whale Walk Slogan!

Where does all the money go?

Collected donations go to PTA’s general fund, and will be used for things such as teacher grants, recess equipment, art docents, STEM, Watch D.O.G.S., book fairs, assemblies, cultural events, family fun events, and so much more!

I’m a parent, what do I do?

You can help your child(ren) obtain donations by encouraging friends and family to ‘sponsor’ your child(ren) by donating to the Cedar Wood PTA.

Our school-wide goal is $33,000

In order to continue to support our current programs and invest in future PTA sponsored activities, the per student goal is $75. It’s simpler than you think—just get $5 from 15 different people, you’ve met the goal!

Donating is easy!

Donate online to securely make your donation via credit card, debit card, or bank transfer—no account needed! Or donate by cash or check (please make checks payable to Cedar Wood PTA and include the student and teacher name on the memo line). PTA donations are tax deductible. 

Employer matching programs from Boeing, Microsoft, Google, and others can help us reach our fundraising goal. Remember to add any online or matching donations to your donation form to make sure they count towards your prize level.

All Students get to enjoy their Whale Walk during their lunch recess!

Every student can win by participating in spirit week and submitting donations. The classroom with the highest participation during spirit week and the top 2 classrooms with the most funds per student collected will earn a classroom party of their choosing! Students can collect donations and earn great prizes! And new this year: every student who returns their donation form will get a small prize! No donations required.
