All About Athlos

What skills do students need to succeed? Research shows there's more to it than academics.
Athlos is a unique public school model that prepares kids for a competitive future in three essential ways: Academics + Fitness + Character. In fact, the principles and skills taught at Athlos are a better indicator for lifelong success than GPA alone.

Butter Braid Fundraiser

Athlos Families,

This year we will be selling Butter Braid pastries to raise money for our school. Butter Braid items are not sold in stores, so this is your chance to stock up and entice your friends and family to purchase delicious pastries for the upcoming holiday season. The money raised from this fundraiser will help us provide needed items for teachers and students including books, curriculum, uniform scholarships, athletic materials, and more.

Pastries will be sold September 30, 2021 through October 18, 2021. Order forms and collection envelopes will be sent home on September 29, 2021.

We are also excited to share the online selling option! Click the link below to register your seller and start selling

We will be giving away the following to the top 3 student sellers:

1st place: $75 Visa gift card

2nd place: $50 Visa gift card

3rd place: $25 Visa gift card

Distribution of items purchased will take place the first week of November. We will send home more information about the distribution process after the fundraiser is completed and order forms are collected.

If you do not wish to participate in the Butter Braid fundraiser, monetary donations to Athlos Leadership Academy are always accepted and appreciated.

If you have any questions, please contact me at

Thank you in advance for your participation.
