  • March of Dimes Wonder Walk October 31st_ Keep donating!

    October 2021



    Dear Parent,                                                                                                                          


    Please join the fight for the health of all moms and babies by supporting your child’s participation in March of Dimes’ WonderWalk fundraising event.  


    For decades, schools conducted WonderWalk in person with a group mini walk around school grounds, often on Halloween.  The past 2 years we included a virtual option to fundraise and remains open to create fundraising options for families.  It is a fun way for children to get involved, learn the spirit of volunteerism and helping others.


    We invite you to join the child’s school’s WonderWalk team on the March for Babies online school fundraising page at


    Begin by clicking JOIN and create your child’s online fundraising page under the school’s team, shown above. You and your child can use that page to fundraise and earn a free, LIVE, virtual cooking class for raising $25 or more.  Your family is encouraged to start fundraising as soon as today and you can continue through November 30th.


    For over 80 years, dating back to the pioneering of a life-saving vaccine for polio, March of Dimes has always risen to face daunting challenges. By joining WonderWalk you are supporting March of Dimes’ efforts to end preventable maternal death and morbidity, premature birth and increase health equity. You are stepping up during this public health crisis, at a time when it is still urgently needed. Thanks to volunteers like you, March of Dimes can develop new programs and resources to help families during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.  


    In addition to the school fundraiser event this fall, some fun virtual fundraising ideas families can try at home with parental supervision include: 

    • Downloading and using the fundraising tools on our March for Babies App to share your child’s personal online fundraising page that you created under your school’s team on 
    • Hosting a Purple Day in honor of Prematurity Awareness Month (November) or World Prematurity Day (November 17) at home via Zoom or other social media platforms. Participants can dress up in purple and have fun 
    • Hosting a sing-a-thon or a Hula Hoop-a-thon. Ask people to sponsor you with a donation to your personal fundraising page 


    Thank you for stepping up during this challenging time, and most especially for your support and generosity, which helps March of Dimes end preventable premature birth and infant and maternal mortality. The cause for nearly half of all premature births is unknown. It can happen to any family.

    DOE Student Accounts

    On this page...

    1. Getting Started 
    2. Resetting Your Password 
    3. PINs 
    4. Security Questions 

    Every New York City public school student has a DOE account. It is created automatically when you enroll in school. Your DOE account stays the same the entire time you are in school, and with it you can access all DOE technology platforms. Platforms include:

    • TeachHub,
    • Google for Education,
    • iLearnNYC,
    • Microsoft Office,
    • Zoom,
    • and more.

    Getting Started

    Your school must give you your username and a password. Once you have these, you can start signing into DOE applications.

    Your school may give you a generic password. If so, we recommend you reset the password yourself, to something unique. This will give you more safety and security. Instructions on how to reset your own password are below.

    The best way to start using your DOE account is to sign into TeachHub. From here, you can access all DOE applications with one click, and you only need to sign in once.

    Resetting Your Password

    There are three different ways you can reset your DOE password:

    1. Reset it yourself through the Student Self-Service tool.

    To use the Student Self-Service(Open external link)(Open external link) tool you must have created a PIN or set up security questions. If you have not done either, see options 2 and 3. Through this method, you can reset your own password once every 30 days.

    1. Ask your parent or guardian to reset it through NYCSA.

    Your parent or guardian can reset your password in NYCSA. If they don’t have a NYCSA account, they can create one for free.

    1. Ask your school to reset your password for you.

    If you are unable to reset your password, contact your school for help. They can find instructions on how to reset your password on the Reset Student Account Passwords page(Open external link) (DOE staff only) on the InfoHub.


    By default, a PIN is not set for your account. You must create a PIN yourself. Your school does not have, or create, a PIN for you. There is no universal PIN for your school.

    To create a PIN:

    1. Sign in to the Student Self-Service(Open external link)tool with your DOE username and password.
    2. Go to the left menu bar, and click on Pin Reset (this applies for creating a new PIN).
    3. Enter a PIN.
    4. Confirm your PIN by entering it again.
    5. Click on Save Changes.
    6. That’s it. An email will be sent to your DOE account to confirm you created a PIN.

    Please note that PINs are optional for your DOE account. However, if you do not create a PIN, you will not be able to use the self-service tool to reset your password. If you feel like it would be hard to remember your PIN, or you are the parent of a young student, we recommend resetting your password through NYCSA.

    Security Questions

    Like a PIN, security questions are, by default, not set up. You must set them up.

    To set up security questions:

    1. Sign in to the Student Self-Service(Open external link)tool with your DOE username and password.
    2. Go to the left menu bar, and click on Security Questions.
    3. Select and answer three questions of your choosing. Make sure you choose answers that you will remember.
    4. Enter your password.
    5. Click on Save Changes.
    6. That’s it. An email will be sent to your DOE account to confirm you set up security questions.
