Roger Run Fun Run! – Friday, October 20

Parents! This year’s Fall fundraiser is the Rogers Run! It’s a 10-day program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on Tuesday, October 10. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Rogers Fun Run on Friday morning, October 20.  With our goal of raising $12,500 for The Rogers Scholarship Fund, we asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run and make it more profitable, easier, and fun.

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 may email Nadine Nemunaitis at nadinenem@hotmail.com. Any Elementary and/or Middle School parents are welcome to help as well. 

FBA Homecoming! – Friday, October 20

Come on out and cheer on the Saints at the FBA Homecoming Football Game against Dallas Covenant!

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.

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.
