Great Gator Fun Run!

Parents and Families—this year’s first fundraiser is the Great Gator Fun Run! It’s a two-week program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on September 24. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps) at the Great Gator Fun Run, which will happen on October 3. This year our goal is to raise $10,000 toward our overall AGS/EC PTO funds, as well as a new sound system for Mr. Park, and we need your help!

 

Students will also experience an amazing character theme, MINDSPARK: WILD WEST! Booster’s most exciting theme yet combines S.T.E.A.M. skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building. While they're teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to save Dr. Shock, our students will learn five character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.

 

Donations will go toward AGS/EC PTO and the entire two-week experience. So please help our school by getting pledges from family and friends and entering them on FUNRUN.COM. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on our students at the Great Gator Fun Run on October 3. Thanks so much for your support!

Calling all fishermen/women! September is upon us and if you’re an avid angler you know, “The Fall Feed Bag is on!” It’s a great time to introduce your kids to fishing and gather with fellow AGS families. The fish know the cold weather is coming and they are eating like crazy.  That means it’s a good time to take the kids out because chances of catching something and keeping their interest is high.  My kids don’t enjoy “fishing” they enjoy “catching” and now is the time.  Come join the Kwitschaus at Law Lake in Fermi Lab.  No experience necessary, Jeremy can show you the ropes but please bring your own pole and tackle.  Experienced anglers also welcome.  We will meet in the parking lot at 3pm on Sunday, September 29.  See you there! (If you have trouble finding us call/text Jeremy at 630.664.9683).

Picture Day Help Needed!

Parent helpers are needed for picture day, Sept. 11, 2019. Helpers will go to classrooms to alert teachers when it is time for their class to be photographed. During the session, helpers will fix hair and straighten / tidy outfits to help ensure great photos. Time slots are for 30 minutes, but any help is appreciated! You can certainly sign up for several consecutive time slots if you have more time to give. Please use the link below to sign up.

Helpers should check in at the office, with a photo ID, 5-10 minutes before your start time. The office staff will direct you where to go. Unfortunately, we do not have a schedule of which class will go at which time.
