IB Tile Wall
Our beautiful, commemorative IB Tile Wall was installed last week in the MS lobby area - just
to right of the Health Office. Please take a moment to stop and admire this art piece.
A big thank you goes out to the many donors who made this possible with their purchase of the
glass tiles that make up this mural. The funds from this project (over $1,000)
go straight back to the school.
Another heartfelt thank you goes out to parent volunteers, Terri Oelrich and Mike Gruby for their
diligent work on this project.
Annual Donation Drive
The FoAEA annual donation drive is just kicking off for the 2015-16 school year. Our goal for this year is
to raise approximately $55,000 during this drive and we've already raised over $2,000.
We encourage families to donate $1/day per student they have
in the school. You can make a one time donation or a monthly donation of any amount at
foaea.org/donate or just click on the link below. The students of AEA
appreciate all of your support.
Used Uniforms - Thank You
MS Parents - A very sincere THANK YOU to everyone who donated used uniforms, as well as,
everyone who shopped our used uniform sale during orientation. The sale was a great success
thanks to you! Reminder: The school will gladly accept your used uniform donations throughout
the year, which you may drop off with April (or anyone else) at the front desk at any time.
As soon as we have collected enough clothing for another sale, we will schedule one.
