" I think people should donate money because kids sometimes don't use the materials properly, and sometimes the school doesn't have enough money to buy more materials. So please donate to Peralta Elementary so that they can have more money to buy stuff for students, and have snacks for aftercare." - Mason
The Walkathon is a 100% kid-powered fundraiser! This year Peralta and Sankofa Academy will partner on the Walkathon. Funds raised by students will go to their own school. Funds donated on this site will go to Peralta. Your donations will help fund programs such as arts, sports, field trips and classroom support. At Peralta, Walkathon funds help pay for aides in the classrooms, for a librarian, for art and music instruction, for mental health counseling and the conflict resolution program, the gardening program, and much, much more. All these things are part of what makes Peralta a great place for kids and earned it a 2011 National Blue Ribbon award!
