About this Campaign

Dear Prescott Community, Alumni, Parents, Neighbors and Friends,

We are so happy to announce that for our 14th annual Prescott Community Walk-a-Thon, we will be celebrating the 100th Year of our beautiful school!

Please join us in celebrating on Friday, May 5th, 2023 for an all-day event!


For 2023, our theme is Prescott on Display! Your donations will be to fund an electronic marquee sign where we can help communicate community events with all of our families in different languages. We hope to install this sign, with the help of LPS Grounds, ideally on the corner of 20th & Harwood St. This mission will be significantly bigger than our picnic table mission of last year where we crushed our goal of $8,000! This year, we are asking for $20,000 ($17,540 plus cost reimbursement) between all cash, check, & online donations -- to work on this huge project to help invest in the school's communication. Our school is FOR ALL, and as the School Neighborhood Advisory Committee, we have decided this is one of the best ways to communicate with our neighborhood.

The Why:
The main purpose of the annual Walk-a-Thon is to serve as a fundraiser for Prescott Community Park, to continue the growth and maintenance of the award-winning outdoor classroom and green space for our local community. You can help by donating a set dollar amount of your choice in exchange for the kids/classes completing the walk. We are grateful that our community has long provided strong support for Prescott Community Park.

Our Goal for 2023 is to raise $20,000 in donations -- from cash, checks, & online.

Reminder on our 2022 Success:
Last year, our theme was Gathering in the Garden. Your donations helped support the installation of picnic tables in the outdoor classroom, along with revamping the pollinator garden, & new seeds for the garden beds & hiring on two garden maintenance staff. The picnic tables are still in transit! Once they arrive, due to the back-order, they will provide students and teachers an opportunity to have table space to do activities and lessons outside! This will provide us with more opportunities to gather together after years in the pandemic, to have picnics again, and to host garden workshops!

Before Refinishing

After Refinishing

We were also able to perform maintenance on the “one of a kind” local artist made saber-toothed fossil dig as it showed wear and tear after 8 years of exploration. With your help, we raised $10,000 for the park!

During the entire school day, we will be participating in our annual Walk-a-Thon where the students will walk around the block as a class during their special’s class period. We will have mascots come to cheer on our students!

Join us in our Centennial Celebration on Friday, May 5th starting at 5pm!

We will be doing a short program in the auditorium, a tour of the school building, followed up by an evening celebration in the outdoor space with plenty of food vendors, 100 Year shirts, local musicians, and activities for all ages. More details on the physical event coming soon! We hope to see you there.

Go Panthers!
