Fine Arts 5K Registration

Calling all runners and walkers!! Come join us at Carrier Park on Saturday, September 2 for our second annual Fine Arts 5K and Fun Run sponsored by Morton Insurance Agency!

The route will be through Carrier Park and will feature performances by our very own IC Imagine band students. This year we are also offering a 1 mile Fun Run as well! All participants will have the opportunity to tie-dye their race t-shirts after they cross the finish line.

All levels of runners and walkers are welcome to participate! Awards will be given to the top male and female finishers, as well as the top finishers in each age group for the 5k.

Early registration before August 19 for the 5k is $25.00, and $10.00 for the fun run, and you will be guaranteed a t-shirt. Online registration will still be available for the 5k from August 20-August 30 for $30.00 but you will not be guaranteed a t-shirt.

REGISTRATION WILL BE AVAILABLE ON RACE DAY! If you have not yet registered you can still run! Race day registration will open at 8:00 AM at Carrier Park (500 Amboy Road, Asheville, NC, 28806). Please note that the cost will be $35.00 and you will not be guaranteed a t-shirt.
All proceeds from the race will benefit the Fine Arts Departments of IC Imagine Charter School in Asheville, NC.

Important School Closing Announcement for Monday, August 21, 2017

After consulting with the North Carolina and South Carolina Emergency Management Services, as well as with the State Highway Patrol and Clemson University, we have decided to close school on Monday, August 21st.

Though school will not be in session the day of the eclipse, IC Imagine is embracing this learning opportunity and science phenomenon with great excitement in the classroom! On Friday, August 18th our school will celebrate Eclipse Day. Teachers are developing activities that focus on the science of the eclipse.

Next week, we will be selling eclipse glasses for $1 at a table by the main door during arrival, or your child can bring $1 to their Collegiate Leader to receive a pair. All money that is raised will be put toward the science program at our school.

We are also cancelling the field trip to Clemson University that was scheduled for grades 5-12. Travel is expected to be very difficult and safety is our number one priority as we make this decision. Anyone who has paid for this trip will receive a credit.

Thank you for understanding that we must make decisions that ensure everyone is safe.
