On May 28th, iPrep Academy is joining forces with Oronde Taliaferro of the Detroit Pistons to Challenge our Students 2 Change.
Oronde Taliaferro runs a nonprofit organization that promotes a healthy lifestyle for underprivileged youth. His summer programs include seminars, health education, and fun activities.
Oronde has created “Fitness Fun Days” to raise money to support his program. iPrep will be participating in this fundraiser on May 28th at Morningside Park. There will be various stations set up for the students including football, basketball, obstacle courses, and in the end…a color run for those who raise a min. of $30. Please dress accordingly as you will be getting colorfully dirty!!!
Click here to register your child for this fundraiser activity. After you register your child(ren), you can forward the link to all your family and friends. And if you have more than one child participating, you will need a different email address for each child. The amounts raised are visible for everyone to see on iPrep’s dedicated webpage. The goal is for each of our students to raise $150. We have set a goal of $30,000 for the entire school. The Challenge 2 Change organization will keep 40% of the monies raised and iPrep will keep 60%. If we meet our goal, that is a total of $18,000 that we will use to enhance a healthy lifestyle year-round at iPrep. We hope to install water filling stations and update all of our sports equipment so that every child can reap the benefits of this fundraiser.
Prizes will be awarded to every student who reaches their goal and special prizes will be awarded to the top 3 students in the school who raise the most money. Examples of these special prizes include PlayStations, Xbox, and AirPods.
Steps to register:
The amounts donated/raised are transparent to everyone at the bottom of the https://iprep.causevox.com/ website.
If you collect any money in cash or checks, you can bring that directly to Lauri Sanders, Room 100. Checks may be made payable to Challenge 2 Change. NO

As we reflect on the first half of the 2018-19 school year, we take this opportunity to thank you all for what we have accomplished together so far. We cannot overlook the fact that our Parents, Teachers and Students are indeed volunteers at heart, who give of themselves all year round.
School and classroom decorations, hurricane relief and pajama drives, Treats for Troops, donating supplies for the needy in Puerto Rico, Guatemala and Venezuela, classroom festivities, supporting Pizza Fridays, Parent’s Night Out and Harvest Fest, and encouraging our students to be vocal as they stood up, walked out, and marched against gun violence – these are just a few of the ways that our PTSA members and iPrep family have gone above and beyond to support various school projects and community endeavors.
As we ring in the New Year, your iPrep PTSA thanks you for your dedication, your generosity and your spirit in making the difference in the lives of ALL of OUR children. There is much more for us to do and we know that we can continue to count on your support.
May your cups overflow with joy, peace, happiness, prosperity and all of God’s blessings this 2019!
