Roger Run Fun Run! – Friday, October 20th at 9:00am

Registration for PK-8th grade FBA students is now OPEN!


Our Rogers Run Pep Rally was exciting, and we are off to a great start. The PK-5th grade students can send their link to their mentors and the mentors can send that link to friends to help increase the pledge total for their mentees.

Help us get pledges from all 50 states!

Students will also experience an amazing character theme, CASTLE QUEST! This is an English castle theme all about being brave and living with character. On their quest to regain Bravemore Castle, students will learn the “SIX VIRTUES of a TRUE HERO” from a cast of colorful characters.

This is going to be a great experience for all. More information will be sent soon for you to send to your family and friends. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on your student at the Fun Run! Thank you for your support!

Volunteers are still needed to help with the carnival games. FBA High School students (or parents of those students) interested in receiving community service hours or if you would like to sponsor one of the special activities, please email Nadine Nemunaitis at nadinenem@hotmail.com. Any Elementary and/or Middle School parents are welcome to help as well.

PTF News

The 2017 – 2018 Box Tops Collection Challenge is underway! For those of you who are new to FBA, collecting Box Tops is a great way we can earn money for our school. All you have to do is purchase participating products and clip the pink box tops. Each Box Top is worth 10 cents. There are plenty of ways you can help to fundraise for our school – just check this out if you need some ideas. For now, we would love it if everyone could collect as many Box Tops as possible!

See www.boxtops4education.com for more information and details, as you wish. With this simple fundraising effort, we were able to raise approximately $700 for our school PTF funds last year!


  • Contest 1 will run from today to October 20th
  • Participating is easy! Simply send the Box Tops to the school office, weekly, in a Ziploc bag and we will count them for you.
  • Don’t forget that Middle School and High School students are also eligible to participate, or High School students can donate their Box Tops to their mentees to help their class win a party.
  • Also please remember to label your submission with your child’s name and teacher or grade so they receive credit. Unlabeled Box Tops will not be credited to your child or their class. Also, your child will not be given credit for Box Tops that expire prior to November 1, 2018


  • The classroom with the most box tops collected will receive an ice cream party or class treat in November.
