8th Grade Legacy Gift

8th Grade Legacy Gift

The Eighth Grade Legacy Gift is a tradition that provides a meaningful way for our Eighth Grade families to honor their time at Allen-Stevenson, and for our eighth graders to learn about the importance of philanthropy and giving back. This gift supports a specific purpose at the School selected by the students that will benefit future generations of Allen-Stevenson boys. Eighth Grade families are asked to make one meaningful and increased parting gift to A-S that supports both the Annual Fund and the Eighth Grade Legacy Gift.

  • Class of 2022 - Fast Action Basketball Rebound Machines

    The Class of 2022 chose to sponsor the purchase of Fast Action Basketball Rebound Machines. 
     
    These machines will improve players' shots, as they act as automatic rebounders, instantly rebounding a made or missed shot and giving a direct return pass for another shot. The shooting machine features real-time analytics, a coaching app, a player app, and tracks the number of baskets made in a row. Specifically, these machines are wonderful for shooting skill development, as they will provide the boys with the repetitions needed to have greater success. They will allow Allen-Stevenson Upper Division students to work on developing an impressive basketball shot.
