AGCS Fun Run Fundraiser KICK OFF MAY 19TH!

Our AGCS Fun Run fundraiser will kick off in just 3 weeks on May 19th. Our goal is to raise $25,000 for enhancements to our outdoor classroom spaces. This will help strengthen our school community and continue to provide innovative learning spaces for our students.

Here’s what all students in grades K-6 can get excited about:

  • Beginning on May 19th students will participate in fun, engaging character development lessons
  • On Friday, May 27th students will have a high-energy outdoor run event to give our school a much-needed boost of fun!

If your family feels it’s not in the position to financially support the school, that’s okay. Families can support our school by also SHARING about our fundraiser with friends and family online. Sharing IS supporting.

Key dates to remember:

  • Fundraiser Kick-Off - 5/19
  • Event Day - 5/27 - SAVE THE DATE!

To get a peek at what the event will look click here.

Parent Engagement Series!

At AGCS, we strive to build genuine relationships with our students and their families. Relationships with families support overall family well-being and children's healthy development. When families are engaged, partnerships are created that have a common focus – helping children grow and thrive.


We realize that the current social distancing requirements can be stressful, at best. The global pandemic requires us to re-think how we do even the most normal, everyday tasks and how we navigate it all safely with our children.


To help support our rock star parents through this time, we're offering a free series of Parent Family Engagement Workshops on a variety of topics. We look forward to your joining us!


Please follow this link for upcoming dates, times, and topics.
