Event Description

Did you know that Las Americas ASPIRA Academy made a charitable donation of $4,000 to the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation last school year?  Help us reach our fundraising goal this year of $5,000!

LAAA is committed to providing project based learning experiences for our students in which students can use their experiences in the classroom to benefit the wider community.  Second and third grade students are teaming up to raise money for childhood cancer research by hosting our 5th Annual Alex’s Lemonade Stand Tuesday, May 28th - Friday, May 31st.

Second grade will practice their mathematical skills such as measuring volume and counting money, while third grade focuses on studying economics such as the production and distribution of yellow goods and services.

For the first time ever, all grade-levels will be participating in the Lemonade Run!  On Wednesday, May 29th students will have an opportunity to exercise and run for a cause.  Students can be sponsored in the run by sharing this website link with family and friends selecting “donate”  in the top right corner and choosing the student’s grade-level homeroom.  The grade-level homeroom with the most money donated will receive a special surprise.   In order to participate in the Lemonade Run during the school day, ALL students must register selecting “sign-up” by Thursday, May 23rd.

All proceeds will be donated to the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.  The whole school is encouraged to join the effort in support of childhood cancer research.  Note: This is a STUDENT ONLY event.

There are many ways to get involved:

Register and sponsor your child in the lemonade run by selecting “sign-up” by Friday, May 3rd.
Share the website link with family and friends on social media selecting “donate”.
Students can purchase yellow products made by third grade students. Items range from 25 ₵ - $5.00.

Pre-order your spirit wear for $12.00 before May 3rd! After May 3rd, shirts will cost $15.  The sign-up link will prompt you to purchase a shirt.
