Students are given a set of spelling words appropriate for each grade level. They ask family, friends, neighbors to sponsor them in the Spell-a-Thon. Students can get per word or flat pledges.
LAUSD no longer funds P.E. for schools like Kester, so we depend on generous donations from our community to pay for our YMCA P.E. program, which encourages physical fitness in our students.
There is no set donation amount. We ask that every student try to submit at least one pledge.
Pledges can be anywhere from $.25 per word to $10.00 per word or a flat pledge of $10 or $100.
Participation is voluntary, please donate what you can.
The P.E. program provided by the YMCA costs over $35,000 for the year. Last year, the Spell-a-Thon raised over $29,000, just shy of what we needed to pay for all of P.E.
