Walk for the CA Playground 2018 Walk-a-thon

Walk for the CA Playground

Our Walk-a-Thon is focused on our need to improve our playground this year.  We believe that recess and outdoor play are crucial to our daily growth and ability to focus on academics. We have some good ideas for additions to our playground that will expand our play options.

We will spend a day of celebration on Thursday October 4, 2018, as we walk to raise money for our playground.  The school has been divided into 6 teams, and our mighty 8th graders will serve as captains.

Students will be mailing letters to friends and family to request financial support for our Walk-a-Thon fundraiser.  We cannot thank you enough for your donations that allow us to give our children important tools for their growth.

How to Donate

If you received a letter, you may send your donation to our school via mail or you can donate online through PayPal (you don’t need a PayPal account) by clicking the button below.  Thank you again for your support!

Karen Pollock’s Letter

Karen Pollock, one of the original founders of Clintonville Academy in 1978, authored this year’s Walkathon letter:

Friends of Clintonville Academy,

As one of the original founders of our school I am often asked what was it that inspired the creation of Clintonville Academy nearly 40 years ago. The answer was really quite simple… I wanted to make a difference.

As I reflect upon our journey, I must say, without question, Clintonville Academy has exceeded all of my expectation and has touched me in ways I could never have imagined. We have laughed together, cried together, dreamed together and inspired together. We have created a family that extends far beyond the borders of Indianola Avenue and for that, I will always be eternally grateful. Not only have we helped nurture the development of hundreds of our students over the last forty years, but we have also accompanied them on trips in Ohio and abroad so that they could learn about nature, other cultures and gain confidence. We at Clintonville Academy have, indeed, developed the “whole” child through experiences they could never have in bigger, more traditional schools.

As you reflect upon your special time or relationship with Clintonville Academy, I hope you know that your friendship and support of our programs and our incredible students mean the world to all of us.

I want you to know about our next big event!

Walk for the C.A. Kids’ Playground

Our Walk-a-Thon is focussed on our need to improve our playground this year.  We believe that recess and outdoor play are crucial to our daily growth and ability to focus on academics. We have some good ideas for additions to our playground that will expand our play options.

We will spend a day of celebration on Thursday October 4, 2018, as we walk to raise money for our playground.  The school has been divided into 6 teams, and our mighty 8th graders will serve as captains.

I reach out to you now, at this important time, to ask for your financial support of our Walk-A-Thon fundraiser. You are an important reason that we are able to give our children important tools fro their growth.

Merci,
Karen Pollock
