Walk for Schools


Traditionally at this time students recognize their academic journey with a walk to collect their hard-earned diplomas. Every step symbolizes movement to end one chapter and commence another.

All students, whether stepping up to the next grade, promoting to a new school, or graduating and moving on in their journey deserve our recognition for their successes this year and our support on their journey forward.

Will You Help Us Move Forward Together?

We celebrate all students, teachers, and families for enduring a tremendous shift over the last 11 weeks. We honor all of our student achievements and the collective adjustment to online classroom instruction since school closures.

Walk for Schools Spin for Schools

The annual Spin for Schools event, scheduled for Saturday, March 21, was paused because of school closures and San Diego county’s stay at home order.

Walk for Schools is an adaptation.

This virtual event will highlight Words of Wisdom from leaders in our schools and community to commemorate every student’s academic journey this year.

All funds raised through Walk for Schools will supplement those raised from Spin for Schools.
