FTMS East is excited to announce our 1st Annual BEast STRONG Walkathon Challenge!
Today students received information on our all school fundraiser. This year we will be doing a walkathon on October 8th (rain date Oct 10th) in place of our traditional brochure fundraiser. 100% of donations will go back to East for classroom supplies, student recognition, the arts, clubs, etc.  This walkathon is a flat donation event and not a per lap pledge. We have many businesses in the community that have partnered with us to provide several raffle prizes for students that raise $25 or more.
Please take a look at the information that your student will bring home today. Please note that in addition to cash/check donations, we also have an online site where donations can be made as well. If you have questions please contact Amy Miller at 803-8103 or
We will feature a walkathon recap in our November newsletter to showcase our students and community partners. FTMS East thanks you for your support!

Assistant Principal
