AIS is excited to get our COLOR ON for the Be The Light Walk!!!! Except this year, we have a twist!!!
It has been brought to our PTO’s attention that some of our families may not have received this information due to their child being quarantined or absent the day the first form was sent home. No need to worry! Your child can still participate. Please just fill out the bottom portion with a donation of $25 or more. If you have already turned in a form, you do not need to do this again. This is a fun and exciting way to raise money for our school and the events that your child gets to be a part of.
Everyone will be able to participate and walk in Springbrook Park. This year we will have an alternative water route the students may take if they choose not to walk through the color. There will be supervised stations along the route in the park, where volunteers will be tossing *cornstarch based powder on participants wearing a Be the Light t-shirt. This is messy, but fun, and it can be washed off. We will also have volunteers spraying kids with water. Your child/student may want to wear old shorts/shoes, pack a towel and an extra change of clothes for after this event.
At a later date, the top six grade level fundraisers (students that turn in the most money) will be recognized and have an opportunity to turn Mr. T and Mr. McBride into ice cream sundaes (We are talking about whipped cream, chocolate sauce, caramel, cherries, sprinkles etc.) in front of the entire school!
This will be exciting and fun for all in attendance! We are honored to offer this as a fundraiser for the 6th time!! Also, any donations that are raised above and beyond our goal will be split equally and donated to both the LeConte Foundation Clark Riley Reagan Scholarship and the Cure San Flippo Foundation to show our kids how they can be the light in our community. So, every dollar donated counts!!
