2014 Run for the Green Sponsors – We thank you!

Dear Alice Birney Families,

A gigantic thank you to Coach Lord for another exhilarating Run for the Green. It was wonderful to see so many Birney families on campus while 560 students, as well as family, friends, and staff ran laps for an entire hour! Coach Lord’s music mix along with the energy coming from the students made for a very exciting and exhausting afternoon. Whose kids didn’t fall asleep while eating dinner?

Each year this annual run is paired with a fundraiser organized by the Friends of Alice Birney to raise much needed funds to support our Specials. Students solicit donations for their efforts and volunteers solicit local businesses for cash and prizes. We are pleased to announce that we raised $28,793.58 this year. Each year more and more businesses support our school, and this year they provided over $15,000 in cash and prizes. Please make sure to patronize these businesses and tell them you appreciate their support.

Throughout the school year we host fundraisers like this to make it possible for Birney to maintain its International Baccalaureate curriculum, certification, and Spanish, art, earth science (garden) and library programs. While we came short of our $33,000 goal, we are only $10,000 from our goal for 2013/2014. Stay tuned for our late spring and early summer fundraisers. Please contact alicebirneyfriends@gmail.com if you would like to help us reach that goal.

Again, thank you for your continued support!
Sincerely yours,

Jennifer Ayala
President, Friends of Alice Birney Elementary

Please support the folks who have supported us with their generous donations for our 2014 Run for the Green
