Walkathon

Walkathon is Happening!

Puesta del Sol PTA Walk-a-thon


On Friday, October 7, 2022, Puesta del Sol is hosting the 20th annual Walkathon!

This annual tradition is our largest community-building event where family, teachers, and staff join students to walk laps in a fun and festive atmosphere to support Puesta del Sol's Fall Fundraiser. There is no charge to participate and there is no set distance, however, every student must RSVP.

Walkathon is a component of the “Big Give” fundraising campaign. This component allows students and their families and friends to donate to their school. Students can promote their walkathon efforts and help raise funds by creating and sharing their Pledgestar fundraising page.  Don’t miss this fun tradition!

Room Parents

Changes to Grade-Level Fund Collection!

Stylized hand holding heart
This year, grade-level Room Parents will solicit donations from their class families, pool the donations, and then split their collected funds equally between the classes in their grade. Room Parents use these contributions to help cover the costs of class celebrations, classroom supplies and/or teacher gifts. Please contact your child(ren)'s Room Parents or the Puesta del Sol Room Parent Coordinators ([email protected]) if you would like more information.


Hispanic Latinx Heritage Month

The Puesta community will be celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month at our Back-to-School Fiesta (September 28th). Please contact Carla Merkow at [email protected] to help plan or volunteer.

National Hispanic Heritage Month September 15 to October 15

Each year, we observe National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15, by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.
The day of September 15 is significant because it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. We also observe Día de la Raza, Indigenous People's Day, on October 10.
The 2022 Hispanic Heritage Month Observance theme is: “Unidos: Inclusivity for a Stronger Nation.” The theme encourages us to ensure that all voices are represented and welcomed to help build stronger communities and a stronger nation.
