We need cakes for the cake walk (see Mitchiner) and items for the Silent Auction (see Cain). If you can, ask a parent or friend for a donation to the Silent Auction. So far we have dinners, art work, weekend vacations, a weekend at LEAF, and even a great kids bike.
Celebration of Champions
We have available tickets for the Celebration of Champions this Saturday night. Interested in tickets? Come see Ms. Cain as soon as possible.
About Celebration of Champions:
Celebration of Champions is ACSFs signature annual event. Celebration has raised money for the Foundations cornerstone programs: professional development opportunities for teachers, IRL (In Real Life) afterschool program, TAPAS (Teaching Artists Presenting in Asheville Schools), and the Equity Fund.
The Champions are chosen from a group of almost twenty community-selected nominees including the Community Agency Champion, ACSF Partner Champions and Community Volunteer Champion. In addition to these awards, Parent Champions from each ACS will be honored as champions for their respective schools.
