Now in its eleventh year, our annual Run for the Green fundraiser is the Birney health and wellness run hosted by Friends of Alice Birney and Coach Lord. We will enjoy a fun afternoon of running, walking and listening to music together while celebrating all our efforts to support our awesome school. In the weeks leading up to this fun day, we hold our largest and most rewarding fundraiser of the year!
Birney Bees collect pledges to help fund key elements of our highly successful International Baccalaureate Program including: Spanish, Art, & Garden for all of our students. These necessary elements are not fully funded by the District. Our school family and our community must collaborate to support all of our children’s success! Be a part of Team Green! Ask friends, family, neighbors and community members to support your school by sponsoring your run. Any size donation helps us reach our annual goal to keep the IB spirit alive!
