Roesland (Shawnee Mission)
October 7 @ 7:45 am - 11:30 am
All Roesland Elementary Students walk from the Roeland Park City Hall Building to the school property to start the day. The Mayor of Roeland Park and other City Council Members are usually present at the starting point. A small breakfast snack is provided for all the students in attendance.
Once they reach the school playground, the Roesland PTA coordinates a Walk-a-Thon event where students walk to raise funds for their annual Field Trip Fund. The Walk-a-Thon features a DJ with music for the students as they take turns by their grade level, to walk for 30 minutes each.
