The Albany Public Schools Foundation is pleased to announce the school and classroom participation winners for iSwim for Kids 2017. This contest was open to all schools/teachers in the district and was judged based on pledges received and participation. The top school and classroom will each receive a cash prize of $250.
The winners are:
Top school: Oak Elementary at $4939.75 in pledges and 50 participants ($250 prize)

Congratulations to Oak Elementary! We appreciate the participation of all of the schools that bring students to the iSwim for Kids event. This event is an Albany Public Schools Foundation fundraiser which supports the classroom grant program. Due in part to iSwim for Kids, we were able to grant $37,683 this fall to teachers. We couldn’t do it without the support of our teachers and schools.
Thank you for all that you do in support of Albany Public Schools Foundation!
