    ROCKET RUN |Thursday, October 17 and Friday, October 18, 2024

    This fun-run encourages fitness and fun for students of all ages!  Students in grades 1-8 will run laps around our 1/3 mile Outside Track (the block around AACA).  Our littlest Rockets in tots, preschool, and kindergarten will run an obstacle course in the gym.
    Rocket Run is also one of many ways for our families to fulfill their annual fundraising requirement.  
    • $130,000 raised to support the school's 2024-2025 operating budget
    • 100% student/family participation 
    • Lots of fun!

    Make all checks out to Alphonsus and add "Rocket Run" in the memo line of your check. If you would like to designate your gift to a specific student's fundraising efforts, please include his/her name in the memo as well.
