Take the Olympathon Challenge

We are at about $27,000 of our $45,000 goal, and we need your help! We have issued a challenge to every student to find/secure just $10 more in new pledges over the weekend. If every student at Phillips brings in a new $10 donation, we will be close to our goal, which means pies to the faces of the Specials teachers!

Our students are super proud of mastering this course, and they had a great time! Check out and share this professionally produced video of highlights from the Olympathon. You can use it to gain those last few donations!
