Airport Road Intermediate School recently enjoyed a double assembly kick-off party. The first assembly was a kick-off for the Be Healthy project. ARIS was recently named a 'Be Healthy School by Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Alabama.

The second assembly was the fundraiser presented by Mr. Jerry, which would help pay for the school's proposed running track. The assembly began with a mini-movie written, directed, and produced by Principal Marcia Stephens, Coach Julie Morrison, and Counselor Irene Wong. The movie, ARIS Wish follows four students who wish for a running track, so they could run without tripping into potholes, being bothered by bugs in tall grass, and getting their shoes muddy after a rain. They wish on a student's red wishing shoes, "I wish I had a track." The wish comes true with a grant from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama, which pays for over half the cost of constructing a track. The following fundraiser was to help pay the difference. After Mr. Jerry explained all the prizes that accompany the number of items sold, he entertained the students with a mini-magic show. Students must be commended for their exemplary behavior during the assembly, says Wong.
