Tech Olympics May 20th
Our annual night of fun is quickly approaching (May 20th @ 7pm in the Mainstage Theater). Tech Olympics is a fun filled evening where the Techies compete for prizes and $. Events like Knot Tying, Costume Quick Change, and Basic Wiring challenge our kids to show what they have learned. Students: sign ups will be posted May 1st! Also, as an exclusive for YPAS Techies...we have a LOCK IN following Tech Olympics. At 10 pm we lock the doors and party the night away! We ask that parents pick up their techies by 8:30 am on Saturday morning.
WE NEED YOUR (parents) HELP! Each year we ask for donation of gift cards, theater tickets, cash.. to give to our students for prizes. Some items that made great prizes last year were gift cards (Target, Starbucks, itunes, Pizza Hut, McDonalds, etc.) and cash (*for Amy to purchase gift cards :)) We are looking for 13 prize packages (of about $20 each) If you can help, in any way, please contact Amy (firstname.lastname@example.org; 485-8355)
Even if you can’t help out before the event, we are hoping you can still support us with your attendance. Last year we had some great cheering sections (some with signs!—which the kids loved!). Everyone is welcome (it’s free!), bring your family and friends to support the kids!!
