We celebrated our summer reading on Friday morning with the help of author and illustrator, Joe Shandrowski.  Through the generosity of the AES PTA, Joe made two entertaining presentations to our students about the importance of reading using music, lights, bubbles and his own rough drafts for his books.  He talked about the importance of being creative, interesting and entertaining.  The students enjoyed Joe’s high-energy performance and were excited to learn that they had met and exceeded their summer reading goal.  At the end of the day, we celebrated with an ice cream party in the cafeteria sponsored by our PTA.

Character Counts!     

First graders in Mrs. DelMastro’s class proudly display the work they are doing to learn about being a good citizen as part of their Social Studies unit on Community.  The students worked in groups to create short video clips illustrating good citizen values and we were treated to a sneak peek on Friday morning.

It’s Pajama Day!

AES students and staff showed their spirit for our first spirit day of the year, Pajama and Stuffed Animal Day.  On Tuesday evening, we hosted our annual K-6 Curriculum Night where parents are invited into the classrooms to learn about each grade level’s curriculum, routines and expectations.  Everyone gathered in the gymnasium at the beginning of the evening to hear about our student success on the Smarter Balanced Assessment and the most recent changes and upgrades to our facility.  There will be a separate Pre-K Curriculum Night on October 11 at 6 PM.

            We had a beautiful day for our school pictures on Wednesday.  The AES staff had some fun on the front steps before the students arrived.  Picture packages should arrive before the end of October and retakes will be scheduled for early November.  All of our students looked quite handsome on Wednesday!
