Thank you to everyone that participated in the Ortega's 2022 COLOR WALK!

Ortega raised over $28,000!

Stay tuned for information on COLOR WAL2023!

The Ortega Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) raises funds for important projects and programs at our school. This year, Ortega is having a COLOR WALK to raise funds. A color walk is like a normal walk-a-thon, but with more flair and color! As students pass by various checkpoints, they will be showered with color from parents participating at the color stations. The non-toxic powder contains corn starch, baking soda and food dye.


Ortega PTO will be providing each student participant with a COLOR WALK t-shirt, sunglasses, and a mask. Ortega PTO is asking for a suggested donation of $10 for kids t-shirts.  All parents should fill out a t-shirt order form, linked above, to turn into the teachers.  Adult sized t-shirts are also available for purchase on the order form.  The sunglasses, mask, and t-shirt may be worn on the day of the walk.  Order your T-Shirt by September 30th using the form above. 


The money collected from COLOR WALK will be used to help pay for Ortega's:

  • Garden Science Fellow,

  • Art Instructor, 

  • Play Works (P.E.) Instructor, and

  • Teacher Stipends . . .  just to name a few.


100% of the money raised from the COLOR WALK goes to our school! No middle man/company that we have to pay!


It’s a great way for our students to spend a day earning money for our school while promoting physical fitness. This year we will be holding this fundraiser on Friday, October 14th during school hours.

Students are gathering sponsors by asking for friends, family, and neighbors for flat sum donations.   Pledges are a flat amount, not per lap. The completed Sponsor Sheet & Pledge Money must be turned in to the front office or student’s teacher by Friday, October 14, to qualify for prizes. Ortega will announce the prize winners the following week!

For more information please read the COLOR WALK information packet above.

Ortega's Carnival will take place on May 19!
