Fun Run

Registering Your Student(s) for the AAMB Fun Run Pledge Drive

Help us reach our goal of $45,000 for new basketball hoops and STEAM enhancements.

 
Support our American Academy- Motsenbocker students today by donating to our annual Fun Run Pledge Drive. All donations are TAX DEDUCTIBLE! These donations directly benefit the AA-Motsenbocker campus. Here is a link to see how our PTO dollars have been benefiting AAMB in the past. This Fun Run is a healthy, active, (and fun!) alternative to traditional fundraisers.
 
This year we are excited to announce that our Fun Run dollars will be going towards new basketball hoops in the gym and also making a direct installment into our STEAM program! The installation of 4 side hoops will allow the gym to be split into two almost full size courts.  We currently have a divider to help make this possible.  Currently, when the Middle School (big kid) is on their PE rotation, they share the gym with k-5 (not so big kid), so two sets of hoops and separated allows each group to go about their class.  Additionally, there are many times when the gym is needed at the same time that a class is using for PE so the gym can be divided and the group will still have access to 2 side hoops. The MS basketball team (Go Rebels!) will also utilize the multiple hoops at practice. 
 
KP-8th Grade students will support your donations by running at the AAMB Campus on September 28th. All donations must be received by September 30th and only WEBSITE* donations will count towards student, classroom, and grade level prize packages.

Prize Package information will be listed on this page once available.
NEW FOR 2018: *Cash donations (i.e. ENVELOPE PLEDGES) will be accepted at the front office, but will NOT contribute to either individual student or classroom/grade level prize packages.
