Each October the Laurelhurst PTA sponsors “Walk-tober”, a walk, bike or roll to school month. We’re changing our traditional walk to school contest to a move at home contest to encourage kids and families to stay active.
Here’s how it will work:
Record the number of minutes each day that your student walks, bikes, scooters, or otherwise moves on the Walk-tober Calendar for the month of October.
Report back at the end of the month in PE class.
Celebrate! We will recognize our active students and celebrate our activity the first week of November!

Families will arrive on the Laurelhurst South Playground at their assigned time. You will walk through the south doors of the playcourt and find the table(s) marked with your child(ren)’s teachers name. Bags will be organized alphabetically with your child’s name.

For families who have children in the 3rd – 5th grades – After you pick up your bag, please see Mr. Brown at the end of the playcourt to checkout a device for your child(ren)
We ask that families send only one family member for each student, if possible.
Be symptom free.
Wear a face covering at all time.
Please do not congregate on either Laurelhurst playgrounds leaving the area as quickly as possible.

It’s October and that means it will soon be time for our Kids Carnival. For those new to Laurelhurst, the Kids Carnival is a Halloween-themed party held at school with fun games and activities! This event raises money for the Laurelhurst PTA but, more importantly, it is a fun event for our kids and community. It only happens with the power of parent volunteers. We need parents from all classes to sign up to run the activity assigned to your child’s class.
