Walk-A-Thon 

The Walk-A-Thon is Heather’s annual fundraiser held during the school day. Students walk laps at school with Heather staff, teachers and classmates as parents and the PTA cheer them on. Even Principal Jasso walks! Family and friends can donate a set amount or pledge a donation for every lap the students complete. You can also sponsor a teacher. Prizes are awarded to students who walk the most laps. 100% of the proceeds go to PTA programs, events and initiatives. And students can collect pledges online!

Movie Nights

Bring your chairs and your sleeping bags and enjoy a movie with your friends!  We also have a variety of food, as well as hot popcorn, available for purchase. Watch Heather Headlines for the movie announcement!
