AHS Tennis-A-Thon to Benefit Foundation
April 29-30
Up All Night Tennis-A-Thon Over the past 9 years, the AHS Tennis Team has supported the Foundation For Allen Schools through the Up all Night Tennis-A-Thon.
At the event, the AHS tennis team plays continuously from Friday evening through 5:00 am Saturday morning. AHS tennis players collect sponsorships from individuals and area businesses for every hour played of tennis.

By sharing their proceeds from this fundraiser (over $18,000 to date!) the students have helped to fund educational grants in Allen ISD each year. To sponsor a student or make a donation, visit www.tinyurl.com/AllenTennisUpAllNight.

Foundation board members presented AISD a check for $10,000 to support the AISD Tuition Reimbursement Program for Educators. Allen ISD is committed to encouraging staff members to pursue continuing education and advanced degrees.
This program allows staff members to apply for partial reimbursement of tuition towards an advanced degree. Funding for this investment in AISD educators is a result of proceeds from the Allen Eagle Run. To date, the Foundation has invested $122,500 to support teacher education in Allen ISD.  
Jay Stafford Memorial Donations 
We are continuing to accept donations in memory of Jay Stafford, assistant principal at Ereckson Middle School. Donations made in Jay's memory will be designated to support education in Allen ISD with input from the Stafford family.
