AGIS Boosterthon Fun Run Info, updates, and FAQ

Leaving a Legacy !

While our 6th graders may not see the benefit of an updated and upgraded playground, they are definitely leaving a wonderful legacy for future AGIS students. They have helped AGIS crush our Boosterthon goals, and they have set big goals with their classes.

It is our hope that when these 6th graders come back to AGIS for their Senior walk, they will see and be proud of the awesome playground they helped build!

Thank you to our 6th graders and their families for being a strong part of this effort!

Want to see Dr. Detweiler on a tricycle?

We have some very exciting incentives for our students when our Boosterthon event reaches its goals.

AGIS Playgrounds NEED Your help!

With over 1,500 students enjoying recess daily, our AGIS playgrounds need some updates! We are partnering with AGSD to help provide much needed improvements and upgrades to the two playgrounds at AGIS.

Can you help us??

Please share this community effort with family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, etc. Ask for pledges! Students will run/walk 35 "Fun Run Laps". Pledges can be per lap or a flat donation. Every penny counts!

Boosterthon is coming!

AGIS Boosterthon is coming! We are SO EXCITED for the opportunity this provides our school!

We know this is a HUGE AGIS community effort! This effort will directly provide improvements and upgrades to the playgrounds at AGIS. (two playgrounds with 1,500+ students having recess daily)

Let's do this!! It's going to be AWESOME!!


Registration is OPEN!

It's time ... it's FINALLY TIME! The AGIS Boosterthon Event registration is OPEN! (we've waited TWO years!) We are excited to begin the process of raising funds to UPDATE and UPGRADE the playgrounds at AGIS!

PRO TIP: register early and be done! It will also give you time to familiarize yourself with the website and the whole process of entering pledges, following along with our progress, adding/finding businesses who are doing Corporate Matching, etc.

Go to mybooster.com to register your AGIS student(s). Almost all of our students were a part of a Boosterthon Fun Run when they are at Penn London. So chances are you already have a login.

It's easy to add your AGIS student(s). Simply enter their name and choose their Homeroom Teacher from the drop down menu. If you have more than one AGIS student, the new and improved Dashboard allows you to see, manage, enter pledges, etc. much easier!

Registering students earns them their first PRIZE! The prizes have also been updated and are AWESOME!


Here's a helpful video to help you with registering: https://vimeo.com/569055671/d1bae2c505

Who wants to help AGIS update and upgrade the playgrounds?

We are excited to kick off our First Annual AGI Boosterthon on October 18th. Our goal is to raise $30,000 for a new playground and to strengthen our school community. Our school has always relied on fundraising to provide exceptional opportunities to enhance student learning and we need your help. And this year, we have more needs than we've ever had before, which means we need your support more than ever.

We completely understand if your family is not in a position to financially support the school right now. You can still be involved by simply SHARING about our fundraiser with friends and extended family online at MYBOOSTER.COM. Sharing IS supporting! Just as we worked to safely begin school this year, we are also safely hosting this essential fundraiser based on our school's current guidelines. We'll send more details, as we get closer to our kick off.
