The PTA is sponsoring our Sixth Annual Academic Olympics for our students
on Thursday, October 20, 2016.
What exactly is Academic Olympics?
Academic Olympics is the single largest fundraiser that the Allen Frear's PTA hosts each year. Starting Mid-September until Monday, October 10th students will collect donations from various sponsors to raise monies for student enrichment programs and activities throughout the year. Some examples of enrichment programs are purchase of computer programs, assemblies, field trips, book fair, Father/Daughter Dance, Mother/Son Scavenger Hunt, Girls on the Run, Frear Gives Back and more.
Just as everyone has a unique fingerprint, each student has an individual style of learning. Research shows that when students learn material in a variety of methods, they are more likely to retain the information and that a healthy body helps the mind work more efficiently. With that in mind, we have created Academic Olympics for all our students in which they will participate in four games on Thursday, October 20th that have both a fitness and academic components focusing in Math, Science, English Language Arts and Social Studies.Yes
