Wellness Week

Wellness Week starts on Tuesday, October 11th in the lead up to the DFES Walkathon.

DFES Lions! We are back with the DFES Walkathon this year at Washington High School on Sunday, October 16.

Get your family ready for a WALKATHON, a day full of special events, all to promote healthy lifestyles, exercise, fitness, and FUN and fundraise for our school while doing so! Any questions, please reach out to one of our fabulous DFES parents, Jen at fundraisingvp@dfespta.org.

Wellness Week and Walkathon are meant to promote wellness and activity exploration while fundraising for our school! We have an all school goal of $50,000 raised! If we hit our goal, Dr. Zaki and the PTA has an experience for the whole school to enjoy.

To make this happen, we need volunteers - look out for a Parentsquare post on how to volunteer!

Here’s what we have lined up!

  • RIGHT FROM THE START: Wellness Week will run during the week (October 11-14) with activities led by parents during morning recess and activities posted on Parentsquare for families to do together. Volunteers can sign up to lead an activity during morning recess!

  • FAMILY CHALLENGE VIDEOS: Share your family’s love of wellness by submitting your family activity video or healthy snacks to the PTA at info@dfespta.org.

  • DAILY VIDEO CHALLENGES:Daily Fitness Challenge Videos for families will be available, created by our very own P.E. expert, Ms. Jeanna!


    • Every student will receive a fun coloring page to promote Walkathon

    • Students, participate in the different activities and/or come to Walkathon, have a chance to win fabulous prizes!
