Are you a member of PTA yet?
If you haven’t already become or renewed as a member of the AES PTA, Join The Bunch! With each new member, Caroline Shabtai (PTA Historian and our membership mural artist) will paint another purple grape to our already growing grape vine outside the main office. With your involvement, support, and fresh ideas, the PTA will continue to bring to our kids programs and activities that support learning and further build our school community. Join the PTA and “Do Good Things For Kids!” Join HERE!
With every $4,000 raised collectively, a part of the annual fund flower outside the office will bloom into color. Please help our flower bloom! Every donation counts, whether you can give the suggested $400 per child or any another amount. In addition to the school flower, there are also flowers posted outside each classroom measuring classroom participation. Classrooms with 100% participation at any donation level will earn prizes such as a popsicle or pizza party, extra recess, the chance to silly string Ms. Cofield, and more! Donate today and watch your classroom flowers bloom too! To find out how annual fund donations benefit your children, please click here. You can donate by check, cash, through our online store using your credit card, or through paypal.
Target Card Winners!
Thanks to all who joined PTA or donated to the annual fund at the Welcome Breakfast. The winners of the Target Gifts Cards are Karina Sweet and Gloria Nolasco (we were unable to reach you through the number you provided – please email us to collect your prize.) Congratulations to the winners!
If you didn’t receive a PTA welcome folder at the Welcome Breakfast or at our PTA table during the first week of school, you can find it here. Completed volunteer forms as well as PTA membership and annual fund forms can be returned to the office, to you child’s teacher, or you can email us.
AES Spirit Wear
Every Friday at AES is spirit day. Kids come dressed in their AES t-shirts, so purchase one for your child today! To purchase a youth t-shirt, hoodie, or an adult PTA t-shirt, please click here to go to the online store.
Some have asked about youth x-small size – it has been ordered and we anticipate that it will arrive in time for this week’s spirit day. You can pre-order an x-small (or any size) right now through our online store and when it arrives, you will be notified.
Our Library’s Grand Opening will be on August 26th!
To kick off the celebration, we will have a Book Fair for the kids. Please sign up to volunteer today! More volunteer times will be made available next week… check back again on that same link for more times to sign up.
