Our K-5 goal is to raise $16,000. These funds help us close the tuition gap (keeping tuition as affordable as possible for all), support the Scholarship Fund, and help us fulfill ALCS’s mission. YOUR participation is vital to our success! We ask that every family & every student participate. Students’ goals are to raise $150 each. Class goals are set based on the number of students in the class.
Donation turn-in dates:
First Turn-in Wednesday, April 28th
Second Turn-in Wednesday, May 5th
Third Turn-in Wednesday, May 10th
Students are welcome to turn-in funds raised anytime, however. They simply need to make sure the monies are in an envelope labeled with their name and turn it in to the Business Office (not their teacher).
Each student who raises funds for the race is eligible for the following prizes:
(prizes are cumulative!)
$25 or more: Amazing Grace Race t-shirt (one of-a-kind, limited edition t-shirts)
$75 or more: ALCS cookie punch card (fresh-baked cookies from the ALCS Kitchen)
$150 or more: ALCS Mystery Prize Event! (Mystery Prize revealed at May 5th Chapel)
The class that exceeds their goal by the most will earn a “SUN & FUN” prize. They'll get a special day outdoors, & be surprised when they head out for their class celebration as they enjoy the ‘sun & fun’ plus a whole lot more!

WHEN: Saturday, May 15, 2021, 5:00 pm until complete.

Hamburger and cheeseburger meal combos are $6.00 and hotdog meal combos are $4.00. (Pre-order form attached)
If you decide to bring your own grill and food, please ensure that you take all your equipment back home with you. For example, we will not have a place for you to dump hot coals, but a little gas grill would work well. Or you can bring other picnic foods and enjoy the safely distanced fellowship.

Tailgate Activities start at 6:15 until complete. All are welcome to join us for the fun tailgate activities even if you don’t attend the Athletic Recognition.Thanks for supporting Challenger Athletics!

Public Health Madison Dane County has guidance for what to do if you are sick or have possibly been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 HERE
"I was exposed to someone with COVID-19"
First, know that you generally need to be in close contact with someone with COVID-19 to get infected. Close contact includes scenarios like living with or caring for a person with confirmed COVID-19, being within six feet of a person with confirmed COVID-19 for about 15 minutes (with or without a mask), or if someone with COVID-19 coughed on you, kissed you, shared utensils with you or you had direct contact with their body secretions.
You can develop COVID-19 anytime during the 14 days after your last close contact with someone who has COVID-19. In order to prevent spreading COVID-19 to others, you must quarantine, which means you must stay home from work, school, and other activities.
When quarantining, you should always:
- Monitor your symptoms for 14 days after your last exposure to COVID-19
- Stay home from school, work, and other activities and get tested as soon as possible if you develop symptoms. If positive, follow isolation guidance for people who test positive; if negative, continue quarantining.
It is safest if you quarantine for 14 days after your last exposure. No test is required to end quarantine.
You do have other options for quarantine. These options are to:
- Quarantine for 10 days after your last exposure. No test is required to end quarantine. Monitor yourself for symptoms until 14 days after your last exposure.
- Quarantine and get tested for COVID-19 6 or 7 days after last exposure. If your test is negative, you could end quarantine after 7 days of quarantine. You must have your negative test result before ending quarantine and the test cannot be before day 6. Monitor yourself for symptoms until 14 days after your last exposure.
Abundant Life Christian School is seeking adults who would be interested in substitute teaching. Substitute teachers need a four-year degree, a desire to serve students, and a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. ALCS is offering in-person classes and safety precautions are well-established to help keep teachers and students safe. If you are looking for an opportunity to earn a little extra money, make a difference in the lives of kids, and have flexibility in your work schedule, please prayerfully consider substitute teaching. Contact ALCS for more information at 608-221-1520 or firstname.lastname@example.org or complete our Substitute Teacher Application.
As we celebrate special days this school year (such as birthdays and holidays), we ask that families only bring in prepackaged, individually wrapped treats to share. Due to COVID-19, we are not allowing home baked treats and snacks to be brought in and shared with your student's class. Thank you for your understanding and please contact Mrs. Roades if you have any questions.
