Wash for Education Promotion
The "Wash for Education" promotion sponsored by BlueWave Express Car Wash in Allen resulted in a $17,448 donation to the Foundation! Ashley Valdez and Jeff Baugh from BlueWave joined us at Lowery Freshman Center for a special check presentation.
Thanks to everyone who visited BlueWave Expres Car Wash during April when 50% of all sales were designated for donation to the Foundation. These funds will be used for teacher grants, student and teacher scholarships, and to support other special initiatives in Allen ISD. We'd also like to thank the following student groups for their help in promoting the event: Lowery Freshman Center, AHS Key Club, AHS Future Farmers of America, and AHS Tallenettes.
The Foundation For Allen Schools is excited to annnounce the launching of School-Pons.
