On the Saturday closest to St. Patrick’s Day, we hold our annual Shamrock Celebration. Bright and early on Saturday morning, families and community members line up for the Shamrock Run. Whether they run the 5K, 10K, or Fun Run, community members have a great time being together and supporting the school. After going home for a few hours to rest from their morning run, our community gathers for the Shamrock Jubilee. This evening event brings together faculty, staff, parents and other supporters of ACS for a fun evening complete with dancing, some St. Patrick’s Day refreshments, great food, and a silent and live auction.
Proceeds from the Shamrock Run go to benefit the O’Brien and William Edward Gibbs Memorial Scholarship Fund, which helps provide tuition assistance for ACS students in need. The Shamrock Jubilee supports the general fund at ACS which provides for everything from technology to textbooks, and professional development to paper towels.
