Did you know that Washoe County School District does not pay for physical education at the elementary school level?

For 20 years, the parents at Incline Elementary have been fundraising for our quality P.E. program. In recent years, our students have had the benefit of learning from certified P.E. teacher Michael Smith, who instills a love of physical fitness to students with his passion and creativity.

In an effort to keep our amazing P.E. program, the Incline Elementary School P.E. Committee is bringing a new fundraiser to Incline Village, “The Winter Wander.”

The event begins at 5 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 6, at many locations throughout Incline Village.

The Winter Wander is an opportunity to wander around to some of our favorite local establishments while spending time with friends. Participating restaurants will provide either specials or will donate a percentage of the night’s proceeds.

Wristbands are $20 and available at the Potlatch or IES, cash or check only. With the purchase of a wristband, you will be automatically entered in a raffle for a grand prize of a room at the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe and a dinner package, plus more great prizes.

Participating bars and restaurants are: Azarra’s, Gus’ Open Pit Barbecue, Rookies, The Local, Bite, Fredricks Bistro, Alibi Ale Works, and Hacienda de la Sierra.

All proceeds will help support and fund the P.E. program at Incline Elementary School. For more information, or to donate if you cannot make it out Saturday night, call IES at 775-832-4250 or visit our Facebook event page.

Liz Harrell is a teacher and the librarian at Incline Middle School, and she’s also an Incline Elementary P.E. Committee member.
