Since the program was established over forty years ago, more than 10 million students have participated in the program. The program's longevity and participation figures attest to its strength.

2010-2011 Reflections Update

posted Nov 6, 2010, 12:15 PM by Wake PTA

11/5/2010 Update for Reflections Chairs: 
By now many of you have already started your school's judging process and many have them scheduled in the next week or so.   Congratulations on getting to this point and now I want to help you get ready for the next step, Wake Council Drop-off.   I will be sending several emails over the next few days including information about drop-off and pick-up, how to prepare for and what to expect at drop-off, and a list of schools that have paid their $50 council dues and $25 Reflections fee. 
 
Email communications will include a lot of needed information as well as answers to many common drop-off questions.   I look forward to meeting many of you at drop-off as well as seeing a few familiar faces.

Wake County PTA 5K - we need your help!

posted Oct 4, 2010, 8:12 AM by Wake PTA

Hello All:

We want to invite you and your family, you and your PTA, you and your school community or you to join our efforts to support National PTA's Healthy Lifestyles Month and to support healthy lifestyles for members of your community!

The Wake PTA Council is hosting a 5K event and we need runners, walkers and volunteers.  During the registration process, you indicate the school you are affiliating with – can be a direct or indirect or community interest in a school.  Anyone is able to participate and select any Wake County School!  Grants are awarded for the schools with the most participation.

2010 Wake County PTA Council Healthy Lifestyles 5K

Benefiting Wake County PTA Council, which supports PTA units at schools throughout Wake County

Sunday, November 21, 2010

Race begins:  3:30 pm

Packet pick-up:  12:30 – 3:00pm

WakeMed Soccer Park, Cary

 

Registration Information:

To sign up you or your student up, you can visit www.pta5k.org to see the details of the race. You will see at the bottom of the website that you can click to register online or you can print and mail-in a registration form from that website.

Early bird registration: $20 until 11/08/10 (includes t-shirt)

Registration on or after 11/09/10 or day of event: $25 (t-shirt not guaranteed)

Race Age Groups: 10 and under, 11-13, 14-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60 and over


Volunteers needed:  Non-racing volunteers register for free (includes t-shirt for registrations before 11/09/10)

 

Another opportunity is coordinate an effort for your school! 

To do that, you would need to make a couple of decisions on how you would want to handle that.  You can take the role of advertising the event and asking folks to sign up online at the link provided above (simplest approach), or you can hand out hard copy mail-in registration forms and ask them to mail them in to the address on the form.  The third and final option (most time consuming) would be to hand out the hard copy mail-in registration forms and ask folks to return them to you for bundling.  Then you could submit them to the address on the form all in a group.  

Although, all three options will work – the first option is the easiest since you do not have to handle any funds or registrations since individuals register themselves.  You just need to make sure they select YOUR school during the registration.  Your team will get credit for any registered participant (runner, walker, or volunteer) that registers with an affiliation with YOUR SCHOOL.  

Also, an important thing to note is that the registrant doesn't have to be a student at the school or a parent of a student at the school - even if you get folks from the neighborhood to register, you can ask them to kindly register as being affiliated with your school.  You will still get credit for them, even if they have no "true" affiliation.  The only thing that matters is that they register as being affiliated with your school.  The schools with the highest number of registered participants will win Healthy Lifestyles grant funding from the Wake PTA Council.  This funding can be used by your PTA unit to bring healthy lifestyle funding to your school.

 

Ideas on ways to advertise the event?

  • email to parents/students
  • include information in your PTA newsletter
  • put it on your PTA website
  • consider announcing it at any PTA meeting or school event coming up between now and the date of the event
  • make posters to hang up in the school advertising the event
  • ask PE teachers to announce it to their classes
  • ask for it to be included in the morning school announcements
  • consider asking your principal to send an all-call phone message to announce it to the parents
  • put a flier in your teacher mailboxes announcing the event
  • print fliers and hang them in local shops near your school - running stores, biking shops, bagel shops, coffee shops, grocery stores, the library - anywhere that has a public message board
  • ...the possibilities are endless, only capped by your imagination...
