Raise the Sails Wrap-Up!


Thank you so much! We Raised the Sails in a big way for Amundsen - the March 6th event raised over $40,000! Thank you from the Raise the Sails committee to everyone who participated in this generous showing of support for our school and our students! While we would have loved to see everyone in person, we felt the love of the Viking community online last night.


You can still donate! You can help Raise the Sails even higher through Friday, March 12, by donating to the paddle raise. Proceeds will be directed to much-needed new technology. Don’t miss the important message from Principal Pavichevich on Amundsen’s pressing technology needs. And to boost your Viking love even more, watch the great new school spirit video!


Congratulations to everyone who won items in the Raise the Sails auction, and thank you for your support!

Please pick up your items on Monday, March 8, in the west parking lot of Amundsen between 9am-1pm. The west parking lot is off of Foster Ave.; FOA will be set up at the main doors by the lot. As a reminder, please adhere to Covid safety precautions, including mask wearing and social distancing. We’ll work to keep pickup as quick as possible, and we appreciate whatever you can do to help. If you are unable to make this pickup time, please email friendsofamundsen@gmail.com to arrange for an alternative pickup date and time.

Virtual auction item info: If you purchased virtual party tickets, shopping coupons, or spices, please watch your email for further information.
