This past Friday was our first event of the year “AmPark’s Costume Party” and it was AMAZING! We had a full house (literally) and everyone had a great time. Watching all of our children and parents dressed up while creating memories with family and friends was the ultimate treat. It was so nice to see the turnout; so many wonderful costumes, smiling faces, and of course, dancing. Our purpose for these events are not just for raising money, they’re for our families to get a chance to engage with their kids and our AmPark community. Continue reading AmPark’s Costume Party

Fall 2017 WonderWalk Campaign
WonderWalk provides elementary school students the chance to help the March of Dimes give all babies a healthy start. A mini-walk on school grounds, WonderWalk is a fun, safe, educational and rewarding way for students to have a first time experience making a difference in their community.
Students are encouraged to pick someone special to walk for such as a baby brother or sister or someone who is expecting a baby. They raise money by asking friends and family to make donations in order to help them reach their goals. AmPark’s fundraising goal this year is $1,000 – the student which raises the most will have lunch with the administration! You should have all received the sponsor envelopes yesterday so your children can begin making a difference for this important cause. Encourage your children to make signs to carry with them during the walk – especially if they were premature themselves! Continue reading WonderWalk: Walking Together for Stronger, Healthier Babies
