The Annual Scotties Stampede, the Ballston Spa Walk/Run 5k for Education!
The primary goal is to bring the community together and encourage students and families to participate in healthy and active lifestyles. We invite the entire community to walk or run in this fun athletic event for the school district and our community.
Financially, the event supports the Ballston Spa Partnership for Innovation in Education Fund, a component fund of the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region.
This field of interest fund is used to support the various innovative and mission-related programs throughout the district that include: Sponsor-A-Scholar, Robotics, STEM enrichment initiatives, Scotties BackPack program and the Clean Technologies & Sustainable Industries Early College High School. Over 50 partners from business and industry, non-profit organizations and government agencies currently support the Partnership Fund.
Embracing collaboration with regional business and industry, higher education, non-profit organizations and government agencies, the Partnership for Innovation in Education develops innovative educational experiences that help reshape teaching and learning in our district’s schools.
