AMES Boosterthon was Great Success! Mr. Fuller in Horse Costume

News from the PTA:

AMES is the BEST!  Thank you to everyone who was able to come out today to volunteer or just to cheer on our runners!  The kids had a fantastic time and we EXCEEDED OUR GOAL!!!  We’re still seeing a few pledges come in online and we’ll do our final funds raised count after the Booster team enters all our lap totals, but regardless of where that winds up, as of right now we’re at $31,376!!!

We are simply amazed at the generosity of this community.  Without engaged families, phenomenal teachers & administrators, and dedicated volunteers, we simply wouldn’t be able to tackle big projects like these to improve our school & children’s educational experience. Thank you!

And thank you to Buffy Rackley and Nicole Reese for chairing this year’s run and to Liz McGuire and Kelly Greenwalt for all your help!

As we work over the next month to finalize plans for the canopy purchase and installation, we will keep everyone informed along the way! 

Woohoo!  Go AMES!

Top Class K-2nd:

Top Class 3rd-5th:

Green - congrats!  Green’s team really brought in that green... cash that is!  We will work with you following the break to schedule your class party at Petit Artist!
