October 4, 2013 ... the morning was gray, the afternoon was blue; and through it all, not a drop of rain!

Without question, the 2013 Archer Glen Fun Run was a huge success. Each year, the Fun Run is a highlight event for our school and this year was no exception. We had a great turnout of parents and family members cheering the runners as they made their way around the third-of-a-mile track that makes up one lap for our runners.

As always, an event like this takes the commitment and dedication of many parent volunteers. We had a record number of parent volunteers give their time to ensure that this Fun Run ran smoothly from setup to tear-down - thank you all! A special thank you goes to our Fun Run Co-Coordinators, Krista Hendrickson and Tanya Khamis. Their energy and effort over the past few months is appreciated by all - thank you!

While the final fundraising amount is not yet in, we believe that this may be the highest fundraising effort in the past five years. Our students did a wonderful job collecting pledges and they ran their hearts out today - great job kids! The Fun Run is the major fundraiser for our school and all of the money stays at Archer Glen to provide enrichment opportunities for our students. We are targeting a portion of these funds to purchase additional iPads to integrate within the learning environment. In addition, the Fun Run money allows us to offer assemblies, field trips, classroom supplies, and supplemental opportunities for our students.

The Archer Glen staff and students thank you for your support!
