Girls on the Run

Our school is need of coaches for Girls on the Run!
If you have an interest and some patience to teach young girls (3-5 grade) how to be confident leaders who can communicate well and problem solve on their own, then PLEASE consider being a coach! I had a blast with my team last year, and my daughter says she loved doing it.
This is a 10-week, volunteer-lead, after-school activity with a commitment of 1.5 hours 2 times a week (2:30-4 pm) at Walt Disney Elementary, Mishawaka, IN, and then it all culminates with a city-wide 5K (May 11, 2019).
It’s okay if you’re not a runner, that’s not our focus! Training, materials, curriculum… all provided! If you know of anyone who would be a great role model to our Dolphins, please share the link below! Members from the community are welcomed, and will need to pass a standard background check prior to being accepted.
** NOTE: THIS IS NOT A WALT DISNEY PTO ACTIVITY! **

PTO Committee Meetings This Week – Join Us!

Good morning Walt Disney families!

We have a busy week of PTO committee meetings scheduled for this week, and we would love for you to join us if you are interested in volunteering on any of the following committees:

  • Hospitality Committee Meeting – Wednesday, November 28 at 8:00 AM
    Hospitality Committee is a new PTO committee responsible for planning and providing refreshments or snacks for PTO events throughout the year, as well as for designated special days for teachers (i.e. Parent-Teacher Conferences, first day of school, etc.).
  • Color Run Committee Meeting – Wednesday, November 28 at 3:00 PM
    Join us to begin planning our 2nd annual Color Run! Last year’s event was a huge success, and our students had a blast! Help us make this year’s Color Run even better!
  • Walt Disney University Committee Meeting – Thursday, November 29 at 3:00 PM
    Join us as we brainstorm and plan for this new initiative to provide after-school enrichment opportunities for Walt Disney students.

Our PTO events are successful because of our amazing parent volunteers who help plan and execute all the details! If you are interested in serving on any of these committees, we can certainly use your help! We hope you can join us this week for these important planning meetings.
