    Oct. 29, 2021 - AGC Needs Your Support, ends Nov. 14!

    DID YOU KNOW? Contributions support next year's programs!

    • This October, to avoid losing a teacher due to lower enrollment, the Foundation voted to fund a second full-time teacher to maintain this year’s established classrooms.
    • Had the Foundation not funded the full-time teacher, some grades would have combination classes (mixed grade classrooms) and/or larger classroom sizes.

    The District only provides 1 full-time teacher for every 24 students in Grades K-3 and 1 full-time teacher for every 32 students in Grades 4 and 5.

    The Foundation is also supporting well-loved programs like PE with Coach Sergio, Art, Garden with the Sage Garden Project, and many more enrichment programs that the district does not fund.

    Thank you and we appreciate your support! 

    Thank you also to our ✨amazing volunteers✨ for adding cheer to this event!
