The 2022-2023 Race for Education will be held on Friday, October 21, 2022!!!
Race For Education is a FUN day for students and faculty. The students pledge to walk/run around a designated area in our back fields for a one-hour period - it’s an exciting day filled with music and exercise. For the weeks leading up to the Race For Education, students ask friends and family to sponsor them via donations to raise funds for the school. 95% of our PTO funding comes from this one event!
The funds raised from the Race allow the PTO to provide the following to students and staff:
- Class Field Trips & Busing Costs
- Classroom/Curriculum Support
- Family Events & Hospitality
- And More
Each student will raise funds by asking sponsors to contribute a tax-deductible donation. Students will have an opportunity to earn prizes and awards based on their participation.
Family and friends are invited to come to the Race For Education to cheer on the students and help support our school!

We are accepting donations this year using online credit card payments, cash, or check. All donations are tax-deductible and 100% of the proceeds directly benefit our school! In addition, many companies have gift matching programs where they match donations to organizations. If your employer has this program in place, please consider requesting that your donation be matched. The students, staff, and families of West Rockhill Elementary thank you in advance for partnering with us in supporting our fantastic school!
