Hello everyone! Theo is going to kindergarten at Malcolm X and he will be participating in the school's annual Walk-a-Thon! The students will walk laps, hula hoop, read books, and run sprints to raise money for many important programs. The money raised by PTA fundraisers such as the Walk-a-Thon cover part of the salaries for the music, art, and dance teachers, the literacy coach, community events, and much more! Malcolm X Elementary is a public arts and academics magnet elementary school in Berkeley, California. Its unique combination of performing arts experience and academic challenge gives every child the opportunity to learn fundamental skills, grow in confidence and self-expression, and participate in a spirited learning community.
