With this year’s “Shamrocks for Science” walk-a-thon we need to raise over $20,000 to further advance our K-8th science curriculum and to upgrade and improve the Science Lab. We hope everyone does their best to support this fun event.


Attached are some updates and revised Walk-a-thon:

  1. Information Packet – full document with details, forms, schedule/calendar of important dates
  2. Document of just the walk-a-thon forms that you need to turn in (Forms DUE) – a hard copy of this document with the set of forms will be sent home this week to the oldest SFB student of each family
  3. FAQ sheet

Just a note of changes/revisions to these documents:


  1. SignUpGenius Links are now available for you to indicate any donations you can make and when you can sign up to volunteer to help. Family members are welcome to volunteer to help too and to help you earn your hours. The links are as follows (password for both sign ups is “shamrocks”)

Volunteer for the walk-a-thon (password “shamrocks”)

  1. The Deadline to return the Student Participation/Waiver form (2 pages) and the General Walker Participation/Waiver form (2 pages) has been moved up two days to Wednesday, February 24th to accommodate the deadline required by the vendor printing our walk-a-thon event bibs. On these forms you will need to indicate if you will be participating and if you would like to request any special nickname for your walk-a-thon bib. The default name printed on the bibs will be “First and Last Name” unless otherwise specified.


If you have any questions about the walk-a-thon and your participation, please feel free to contact us with questions at any time.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the walk-a-thon. Thanks for your participation and support of SFB and our Science Program!
