By now you’ve probably been hearing about the Serve-A-thon weekend coming up April 29 and 30. Well, here, in one place, is everything you ever wanted to know about the great Ashwood Serve-A-Thon (and the fabulous party to follow)!
Between March 15 and the end of April, we are asking families to collect sponsorships for their participation in the Serve-A-Thon. Our goal is to raise $25,000. This money goes toward the 2015-16 budget and is already accounted for in the form of salaries for our wonderful teachers, tuition assistance, grounds maintenance, and more. You will be able to collect donations directly from sponsors or direct them to your individual Serve-A-Thon website page where they can donate online. There will be fabulous prizes throughout so get started right away!
On Friday, April 29, students will be volunteering with their classmates, teachers, administrators, and parent volunteers at a number of area nonprofits. Some of these include Youthlinks, Pope Memorial Humane Society, P.A.W.S., Tanglewood, and Loaves and Fishes lunch program. Saturday, April 30 will be a day of service from 10-2, serving many of the same nonprofits as well as Hospitality House, and a music program at Quarry Hill. We hope all Ashwood families will participate. This is a wonderful opportunity to give back to the larger Midcoast community.
Saturday evening we will have a chance to kick back and relax after a job well done. Come dance the night away to the salsa rhythms of Primo Cubano. A little rusty on your salsa moves? Not to worry, there will be half an hour of instruction before the dance, not to mention a cash bar. Bring your friends and neighbors; come early (you don’t want to miss the door prizes!) and stay late! This is sure to be an event to remember!
