Join us on Saturday, March 2, 2024, from 7-11pm, for the Atlanta Neighborhood Charter School’s annual Wonderball! This year, we’re taking a nostalgic trip back to the 90s with our exciting theme: “Saved by the Ball.” It’s going to be an evening filled with fun, community spirit, and a celebration of the era that brought us unforgettable music, fashion, and pop culture.

Get ready to enjoy delicious food from popular local restaurants, bringing a taste of Atlanta’s vibrant culinary scene to our gathering. This event is not just a party; it’s a community-building experience, where parents, teachers, staff, and community members come together to support our school and celebrate our shared goals and achievements.

We are thrilled to announce that the venue for this year’s Wonderball is the stunning penthouse of the MET, offering breathtaking views of the Atlanta skyline. This incredible location has been made possible thanks to the generous support of our sponsors at Carter USA. Not only have they played a pivotal role in supporting our event, but they have also been instrumental in the development of the Summerhill main street on Georgia Avenue, further enhancing our community’s vibrancy.

Student Art & Teacher Time

Wonderball’s tradition of showcasing student art is eagerly anticipated by attendees each year, forming an integral part of the silent auction. At the Elementary Campus, every class contributes a unique art piece, and selected works from Middle Campus students are also featured. A highlight for students is the chance to win a “teacher time” experience—an opportunity for special activities with a teacher or faculty member outside the usual school routine. This can range from a pizza party and cupcake making to a day at the lake, creating memorable moments for both students and educators.



What is Wonderball and why does ANCS have this event?

Wonderball is an ANCS tradition that dates back to 2002, the year the school opened. It is the largest fundraiser for ANCS and is an event that falls under the umbrella of the Fund Development Committee of the ANCS board. Starting a school from scratch was tough and money was needed. Creative parents and community members demonstrated true grit in figuring out ways to fund the school, hence, Wonderball! There were many other lean times as well (remember that recession?). Once the tradition was started it continually evolved and is now a part of the ANCS fabric. Wonderball serves as an opportunity to build community while at the same time generate funds that the school has come to rely upon as part of the budget.

Thank you to our 2023-2024 sponsors for making this event possible!
