Parent Workshop ¨Conscious and Positive Parenting,” Wednesday, September 14th, 8:15 AM in the Parents Center, Room 18

Please join us for our first Parenting Workshop of this school year, presented by Dr. Erin Cantwell. Conscious and Positive Parenting is parenting with a plan for a positive outcome.  To achieve this goal, as in all other goals in life, be it career or otherwise, we parents need to identify a plan of action, a template for enabling our children to ultimately achieve true happiness in life. Please come to hear about strategies and plans of action to help our children thrive and grow in an emotionally intelligent environment!

Coffee and Refreshments will be served to all attending parents. Please don’t forget to RSVP.

School Beautification Saturday!   September 17, 9 AM to 2 PM

Volunteers are needed for a campus weed-pulling contest! The PTA is organizing a volunteer gardening crew to tidy-up some overgrown areas and other odd-jobs to fix-up the campus. Come get dirty, make new friends, and explore the campus like never before. Some extra gardening tools will be on hand, but bring some if you can. Sign-up here so we can get a better head-and-tool count or just show up, there is a job for everyone.

First prize is a matched set of blistered hands, second prize is a dull rake.

We are working on being able to provide food and drinks to volunteers, so please sign up so we know how many people to expect. And if you can donate any food or drink items, please contact Andrew Keefe.

Our First Movie Night is Coming Up on September 23rd

Please come join us in the Auditorium on Friday, September 23rd for our first Movie Night of the year. Movie is free for AES students and family, and we’ll have pizza, drinks and snacks available for purchase. So, bring your jammies, a sleeping bag and enjoy the show! We’ll be announcing the title of the film next week. Stay tunned!

Annual Fund

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, or through the AES PTA online store using your credit card. Contact us if you’d like to set up a payment plan.

Call for Volunteers

If you haven’t already completed your volunteer form, you can find it by clicking here. So many exciting activities and events are planned for you and your children this year and we need YOU to make them happen. We know you are busy, but please join us to create lasting memories and enriching experiences for your children. Return completed forms to you child’s teachers or to the main office. Thank you in advance for supporting your child by volunteering with the PTA.

Thank you, and have a wonderful week!
