Adventure Dash FUN RUN

Thank you SO MUCH for your amazing support of our school through the Adventure Dash Fun Run! We are blown away by your generosity! We are preparing for an amazing day of Fun Runs to celebrate our students today!


VIP Foam Party for those that earned the VIP Foam Bands has been RESCHEDULED. The Adventure Dash Foam Machine was caught in the recent floods. They are getting a new machine and will reschedule the party for all the students that earned that party. The team has a list of the students that earned that party - so even if they lose their band, they will still have access to that special VIP party once we reschedule that.

Akers' All-Stars

Students are nominated for this Principal’s recognition award for going above and beyond our school expectations - those who exhibit leadership, kindness, and extraordinary character!


We are so proud to announce this week's Akers' All-Stars pictured below:

Vision & Hearing Screening Volunteers Needed:

I would love to have 6 vision screeners and 3 Hearing screeners. We are hoping to only need them for 3 class periods so if they can sign up for the day that would help immensely but definitely not required!!

We need CERTIFIED Volunteers for these shifts: (these volunteers will need to come with their certification card that they received when they took the vision/hearing screening class):

5th & 3rd grades so that shift will be (8:55-11:40) There will be a 1 hour break in between.

1st grade shift will be in the afternoon at 2:55-3:50.

CROWD CONTROL Volunteers: (no certification needed)

* There are a lot more kids this year so I'm thinking maybe 12 volunteers per shift. These volunteers will aid in noise control, keeping the lines moving, helping getting kids from holding area, and help with height and weight.
