It's slime time! Join us as we slime Mr. Rutkowski to celebrate an awesome Walkathon!
Thank you so much to all of the wonderful donors, volunteers, teachers and staff members, and students that made our Wildcat Walkathon possible! Our community raised over $117,000 on over 500 donations for Waters, blowing past our goal of $75,000 and helping ensure our Ecology, Right-at-School, fine arts enrichments, and student athletics programs will be well-supported!

We've got an exciting day planned with lots of fitness fun at Waters. Every student will receive a Waters beanie for coming out to celebrate their Waters spirit. Check out the schedule and come out to cheer on our Wildcats! Parents, siblings, and friends are welcome.
Thank you to our Walk-a-thon Silver Sponsor, Galter Life Center at Swedish Hospital and our Bronze Sponsor, Aldi. If you'd like to learn more about sponsoring WatersToday events or how your business can help support Waters Elementary, click here.

We need a few more volunteers to help with the Walk-a-thon on Friday, especially in the afternoon with the preschoolers, third-graders, and middle-schoolers. Click here to see the opportunities and sign up.
We've already raised almost $50,000, but we need one more push to reach our goal! Donate or pledge here now and help sustain the Ecology program, recess and lunch supervision, and student athletics. We are asking each family to donate or pledge $500, but every dollar counts! You can collect pledges in any amount from family members and friends and turn them in to your classroom teacher or make a recurring donation online.
We have lots of fun incentives for participating and donating! Every kid who comes out for the walk get a Waters beanie to show their school spirit and if we reach our school goal, we get to slime Mr. Rutkowski this Harvest Day! Families that donate $500 or more have a chance to win a $500 gift card to On the Route bike shop. Thanks to On the Route for their support!
Students have been very busy creating art and some help is needed in the art room. If you have some free time during school or after, Ms. Vecchioni would like some help hanging the students' art in the hallways. Parents must have approved volunteer status from CPS to help.
Want to be involved even more in the visual arts program? Volunteer to be Ms. Vecchionis's Visual Art Room Parent and assist with lots of creative activities! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
We are so excited to be back in person for the Walk-a-Thon! This year, WatersToday has combined the walk with our annual Pledge Drive, a move that will help streamline our fundraising efforts throughout the year. Yep, you heard that right—we're cramming all of our fall fundraising into one awesome day. We've already raised $8,000, but we need your help to reach our goal of $75,000! The money we raise helps fund lunch and recess supervision, the Ecology program, coach stipends and uniforms for student athletes, and so much more! Click here to donate or pledge now!
