Thank you for your support of our Raise Craze fundraiser. ACE students have already completed over 3,200 acts of service! Let's reach our goal of 4,000 Acts of Kindness while raising money for our school! Also don't forget that we will be accepting donations of the following items through October 6:

  • Small nylon collars, small lightweight nylon leashes, healthy chew bones, and tightly made tug toys (to benefit the Greenville Humane Society)
  • Boxed macaroni & cheese, noodles, spaghetti, egg noodles, spaghetti sauces, and cheese sauces (to benefit Loaves and Fishes)
  • New or gently used clothing- size 0-12 months including pjs, onesies, and outfits; baby blankets, socks/hats, and bibs/burp cloths (to benefit Greenville's Gift)

International Walk to School Day
Augusta Circle will join schools in more than 40 different countries as we celebrate International Walk to School Day on October 4, 2017 . Meeting stations will be set up around the community for those who aren’t close enough to walk or ride on a regular schedule, or if you want to join with a fun group during your usual morning commute.  October 4 will also be an “ACE Spirit Day” so encourage your student to wear an ACE t-shirt or red and white.

Augusta Circle proudly displayed nearly 100% participation rates at all of our Walk and Wheel days last year. Plus, we were awarded platinum status in May 2017 from the National Center for Safe Routes to School. This highest honor recognizes our accomplishments towards increasing children walking and biking to school, promoting safety awareness and helping fight the alarming rise in obesity rates.

Please plan on participating in this fun morning so that we can continue to maintain all of these wonderful accomplishments.
