  • Book It For Drake 5K and Fund Run

    Get ready to run!  We are so excited about our 5th Annual Book It For Drake 5K and Fun Run taking place Saturday, February 11, 2023, at Town Creek Park. Registration is open and we are hoping for 100% participation from all families at Drake. 
     
    The purpose of this event is to raise money for new books and technology for our students, as well as classroom materials and professional development for our teachers. In honor of our registration opening, we are excited to offer 100 PBIS bucks for every student who signs up.  The cost for ACS students is $20 (the discount comes off at the end). Registration includes a t-shirt! You can sign up HERE.
     
    We are also reaching out to local businesses to sponsor the event. Sponsorships range from $100- $1000 and provide a great opportunity to support our middle school students.  If you are interested in participating as a sponsor, please click HERE to complete the sponsor registration form.  Should you choose to submit a sponsorship form, a DMS staff member will follow up with you regarding the free race registration spots and t-shirts associated with your sponsorship level.
     
    Mrs. Sagastegui (cwsagagstegui@auburnschools.org) is happy to answer any questions you may have. We appreciate your consideration and hope to see you on race day!

  • "Where's The Bus" App Available Now!

    This is an image of the Where's the Bus app ACS is using to help parents locate buses.

    DOWNLOAD TODAY: Auburn City Schools recently introduced the opportunity for bus riders' parents to know their assigned bus's location using the free app "Where's the Bus." 

    Parents and guardians can see live updates, tracking, and the estimated time of arrival for buses. The school system's objective is to make this application the single communication mode between parents and the transportation department.

    To create an account or view updates on a web browser or computer, go to https://wheresthebus.com or download the Where's the Bus app for your device; scan the appropriate QR code in the graphic to be directed to each app store.

    Below are step-by-step instructions for setting up your free account.

    First, you must know your child's birth date and Student ID number, found under "Demographic Information" within PowerSchool. If a family has multiple children who ride different buses, go to "Account Settings" and select "Add Rider."

    Once you launch the app or website, please:

    • Select "Create Account"
    • Select "Auburn City Schools" from the District list
    • Add Student
    • Fill in the birth date and the Student ID
    • Select "Save"
    • Select "Continue" (this is the point where you can select "Add Rider")
    • Fill out the required information, check the box, and select "Sign Up"
