Abernethy Walking Group: The walking group from Abernethy Elementary will ONLY be possible in 2018/2019 with the help of volunteer parents. If we don't have two parent volunteers per walk signed up by the start date, the walking group will be canceled. Please help! If you volunteer for at least 3 walking days in the school year, you get the walk fee waived. You can also get $10 off class for each additional walk. If you want to be a permanent parent walker, you can save $325 off the total cost of the class (that's half off!). We anticipate having a large group of walkers, so we need at least 2 parents per walk. If you can't volunteer at all, the fee is $45 for your child to participate in the walk for the entire year, but PLEASE REMEMBER if we do not have enough volunteer parents we can't have this walking group. The $45 fee covers my one staff member + the additional half hour of care before class starts. While our staff member and volunteer parents will always make your child's safety their #1 priority during the walk, Portland Drama Club and volunteer parents will not be held responsible should an accident happen. If your child can not handle him or herself in a responsible and safe manner, your child will be removed from the walking group. Please dress your child appropriately on days when rain is in the forecast (a change of shoes is helpful) and pack a snack! Thank you! We can't wait for next year.
