Get your walking shoes on! The annual Matsumoto Walk for Education is coming - Friday, October 11th! This is your chance to have fun with your friends, get fit, and help make the Matsumoto Walk for Education a fun day for the whole school. It is the ONLY major fundraiser of the year!

Our goal this year is to raise $40,000! That's a BIG number, but with your support our Mustangs can achieve anything.


The process is simple. Students will ask people to be "Sponsors".

  • "Sponsors" are those lovely folks who agree to donate money for your participation as a walker in the Walk for Education.
  • Sponsorship is a single donation and not based on laps walked.
  • They may be friends, family, neighbors, and parents' co-workers or business associates. Please do not go door-to-door unless you have an adult with you.
  • Check with Employers for Employee Matching.
  • Cash or checks should be made out to "Matsumoto School."


  • Students turn in their Pledge Envelope and money by Friday, October 11th by giving it to their classroom teacher.
  • If your student cannot participate on the day of the Walk for Education please send their money to school earlier.


  • A classroom trophy and lunch with the principal will be awarded to the top primary and top upper grade class for raising the most money. (Students bring their own lunch)
  • An Ice Cream Sundae Party will be awarded to the top walkers and top money earners per grade level.
  • If the walker raises $50, a chain and shoe charm will be awarded.
  • If the walker raises $150, a cool shoe keychain will be awarded.
  • If the walker raises $300 or more, he/she will get to have lunch with the teacher.

The more money a student raises the more prizes they will earn!
