Our Activities
Annual Walk-a-Thon

The Walk-a-Thon is the AAC’s main fundraiser for classroom supplies; grants to every grade, specials, and special education; STEM items such as ChromeBooks, SmartBoards, and other equipment essential for successful remote learning. The 2020-2021 Walk-a-Thon was VIRTUAL and it was a huge success! We exceeded our goal and received $5,360 in donations. We have a very limited number of extra 2020-2021 Walk-a-Thon shirts in Child Small, Child Medium, Child Large, Adult Small, Adult Medium, Adult Large, and 2XL. If you need a different size OR missed out on ordering a shirt and want one, please email garvyschoolaac@gmail.com.
