Beware of Dragons!

AES students in our Early Learning Center celebrated the end of their five senses unit with the reading of Dragons Love Tacos and a taco party on Thursday morning. These fire-breathing students wore dragon headgear and feasted on a crunchy or soft taco filled with their favorite ingredients. I truly enjoyed my morning taco in the presence of these friendly dragons!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Intergenerational Day at AES took place on Wednesday morning as many grandparents, aunts, uncles, parents and siblings were welcomed into our classrooms to observe and participate in some fun and engaging learning activities. It was one of the best turnouts we have ever had for this pre-Thanksgiving tradition. Special thanks to our classroom teachers for planning activities to engage our families and to the PTA for providing refreshments. We hope that all of you are able to enjoy some quality time with family and friends over this holiday weekend. We are extremely thankful for our families and our dedicated staff.
