Aquinas Academy Parents’ Association (AAPA)
The AAPA is the primary means by which parents are involved with the Academy, providing many committee opportunities for parent participation as well as coordinating large fundraising efforts to support major projects on campus. By supporting the school through volunteering time and talent, parents also get to know other parents. All parents/guardians of Aquinas Academy students are automatically a member of the association.
AAPA Events 2019–2020
Walk-a-Thon – May 11, 2020
The Aquinas Academy Walk-a-Thon will take place this year on Monday, May 11th.
Our students will spend the day walking as a school community in North Park, followed by lunch and prize awards.
Funds raised by our students and families in support of the Walk-a-Thon go towards the everyday operating expenses of the school.
Student/family pledge forms, business sponsor forms, and sponsor letters, as well as the Family Bulletin have been sent to all families. The Family Bulletins will be updated and sent out on a regular basis between now and the event.
The pledge and sponsor forms, as well as sponsor letters, may be found on the Walk-a-Thon informational page for our students and families.
We are also in great need of volunteers, both on the actual day and in the planning stages. Please contact Wendy Karem or Jennifer Dingle if you can help in any way!
Your Aquinas Academy Walk-a-Thon Team
Kick off of Box Tops 2019
If you haven’t already done so, please download the App for “Box Tops for Education” and start scanning your receipts! This is how we will earn money for items that have Box Tops. The new program/App allows you to track your contributions to Aquinas Academy, as well as how well we are doing as a school as a whole. Please make sure to tell families and friends who you used to get Box Tops from to either download the App and scan their receipts making sure they list Aquinas Academy as the school or give them to someone to scan within 14 days of purchase!
The goal we have set for Aquinas Academy is $500.00. Once Aquinas Academy reaches this goal, the students will have earned a dress down day. For every $500.00 earned, the students will have earned a dress down day! Historically, we have had class competitions, however, the new technology makes it difficult to track the contributions by grade level.
We have distributed collection envelopes to the classrooms and will pick these envelopes up monthly to collect the remaining clipped box tops. Please send these in with the students!
If you have any specific questions, please email Ann Reppermund, who would be happy to answer any questions.
