Thank you to our 2015 United We Run 5K/2K Sponsors!


The Clothesline Consignment - Fundraiser 

MIR Parents now has a consignment account at The Clothesline Consignment located at 1441 W. Northern Lights Blvd., Suite C, in Anchorage (across the street from The Alaska Club).  Anyone can drop off quality womens clothing, shoes, and accessories for consignment sale.  If you'd like, you can inform the salesperson that you'd like the proceeds to be donated to MIR Parents.  The store will mail the proceed check directly to MIR Parents after the item(s) sell.  Here's how it works:  The store sets the price.  They keep 1/2 and MIR would get 1/2 (same as with any account there) of the final sale.  The items are displayed for 90 days.  If they don't sell, the items will be donated.  They do not consign bridal wear, furs, undergarments, or housewares.  They accept sizes 0-3X.  Spread the word!


THE 2015 PUMPKIN PATCH - October 21-22

The Pumpkin Patch will be open on October 21 & 22, 12:45-5:00pm at Turnagain Elementary School. Come purchase a fall pumpkin! Large pumpkins come with a free face painting. The high school Russian Immersion students are our talented face painting artists.  While you're here, take a moment to relax in our cozy Pumpkin Café as you enjoy goodies and drinks from our fall BAKE SALE.  Thank you for joining us as we welcome autumn to Alaska!

MIR Parents Inc. invites you to participate in the United We Run 5k/2k on United Nations Day, Saturday, October 24th, 2015 (10a.m.).

We are inviting all of the ASD language immersion programs (German, Japanese, Spanish Anchorage, Spanish, Eagle River and the Chinese FLES) to participate and see which program can field the largest team. We have a special trophy, the United Nations Cup, for the language program that fields the largest team. The pubic is welcome to sign up to be part of one of the language teams to help celebrate the diversity of language instruction in the Anchorage School District.

All finishers in the 5k distance will receive a custom United We Run Hoo Rag at the finish line. The 2k is an Healthy Futures event and all kid finishers will receive a medal at the finish line.  We hope you can join us for this fun active event.  Email Jenny Kimball with questions:
