Youngsters attending Atchison Elementary School are seeking pledges to raise funds in support of the second annual AES Fun Run/Walk event coming in April.

Pupils will be gathering donations from family, friends and neighbors in effort to raise funds for the running and walking fun day. The all-school event is scheduled for Friday, April 26 at AES. All pupils will participate in the special fun-filled day of fitness and interaction.

Atchison Elementary School Community Club members are encouraging each pupil to raise a $20 minimum. Each pupil who successfully raises the minimum will receive an AES Fun Run/Walk shirt to wear the day of the fun run/walk event and to take home afterward for keeps. There will also be additional prize awards based on the fundraising amounts.

All pledge sheets and money collections are due for return by Tuesday, April 9. Pupils who miss the pledge sheet and money collected deadline will not receive a shirt. An announcement of the time schedule by grade will become known closer to the event date.

AES Community Club sponsors the event to provide money for classroom needs, student incentives for good behaviors, rewards and other activities to benefit AES pupils. The AES Community Club is a parent organization comprised of members who volunteer to help with school events and activities.

Contact AES Community Club at for more information concerning the upcoming event.
